In July 2022, the Right to Contraception Act was introduced on the floor of the House of Representatives.

195 members of the House voted against our right to contraception. That includes condoms, IUDs, the pill, patches, emergency contraception, and the ring. 

195 members voted against YOUR right to contraception as affirmed by the Supreme Court of the United States.

Here’s how we are fighting back in 2023

The right to contraception is not guaranteed. While most people aren’t paying attention, legislators in multiple states have introduced bills that threaten the right to basic contraception like IUDs. Nevada’s governor vetoed a bipartisan bill that would have protected the right to contraception – with no explanation.

But some lawmakers are stepping up, working on bills that would protect the right to contraception before it can be taken away. Here’s a look at what’s in progress:

  • In North Carolina, state senators introduced the Right to Use Contraception Act, which is just four sentences – as simple as it gets. Legislators are working to force a vote on it and show their constituents where they stand on this issue.
  • In Wisconsin and Arizona, lawmakers introduced their own statewide Right to Contraception Act, which would protect and preserve the right to contraception, including condoms, the pill, and IUDs.
  • Rep. Kathy Manning and Sen. Ed Markey reintroduced the Right to Contraception Act this summer – setting the stage for a nationwide bill to codify the right to contraception in federal law. 

The more bipartisan bills that pass at the state level, the more pressure there will be on congressional Republicans to pass the federal bill and end government interference on this issue once and for all!
