Washington, DC — Today, President Biden will sign an executive order that will strengthen access to affordable, high-quality contraception and family planning services.The order, the third related to reproductive freedom signed by the administration, directs a range of agencies to strengthen access to contraception under the Affordable Care Act, through Medicaid and Medicare, for service members and veterans, and through a wide range of other federal programs.
NARAL Pro-Choice America President Mini Timmaraju released the following statement:
“Access to contraception is essential to our health and well-being. It’s vital to ensure that we all have the freedom to plan our lives and our futures. The reality is that anti-abortion extremists have decimated access to abortion care in our country, and they want to do the same to birth control. It has never been more important to protect and expand access, and we commend the Biden-Harris administration for acting to do just that.”
For over 50 years, NARAL Pro-Choice America has fought to protect and advance reproductive freedom at the federal and state levels—including access to abortion care, birth control, pregnancy and post-partum care, and paid family leave—for everybody. NARAL is powered by its 4 million members from every state and congressional district in the country, representing the 8 in 10 Americans who support legal abortion.
