Birth control prices are now 2, 3, and even 5 times higher at college campus health centers and clinics serving low-income women across the country, going from $10 to up to $53 a month because of the Deficit Reduction Act of 2005, passed by the old Republican Congress. Take action today: tell Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and all of Congress to restore affordable birth control for students and low income women!
For almost 20 years, pharmaceutical companies provided college health centers and many clinics servicing low income women with birth control at deeply discounted prices. But this act, which went into effect in January 2007, has eliminated these discounts for campus and low-income health centers.
Join us now and urge Congress to restore affordable birth control for students and low-income women. Congressmembers Joseph Crowley (D-NY), Nita Lowey (D-NY), and 103 co-sponsors have introduced the Prevention Through Affordable Access Act to restore affordable birth control prices for university-based and safety-net clinics.
Millions of women across the country are being affected by these devastating hikes in birth control prices.
We need your help and we need it now. Join the Feminist Majority Foundation and thousands of people across the country and take action today!
