First, abortion. Then, IVF. Now, contraception.

When the Supreme Court overturned the right to abortion in 2022, Justice Clarence Thomas wrote that the court should also "reconsider" the right to basic contraception.

Weeks later, the U.S. House of Representatives voted on a bill that would have protected the right to contraception in law. But 195 Republican lawmakers voted against it.

On June 5, 2024, the Right to Contraception Act was brought to a vote in the U.S. Senate. Republican senators DEFEATED it.

As of now, all it would take to end the right to contraception in America is one Supreme Court decision.


Contraception isn't a partisan issue. 90% of Americans support it, regardless of party. So how did we get to this point?

First Abortion: Trump appointed right-wing justices to the Supreme Court who helped overturn Roe v. Wade—just like he promised they would. This set the clock back 50 years and stripped us of our right to abortion. States immediately started to ban abortion.

Then IVF: Alabama used the basis of this ruling to say that IVF should be illegal and clinics in the state temporarily shut down.

Now, Contraception: Right-wing politicians are seeing how far they can push, falsely claiming IUDs, types of birth control pills, and Plan B cause abortions—all so that they can ban them too.

Why? Money + Control: Politicians who push for or go along with these views get funding and support from big-money organizations like Susan B. Anthony List, National Right to Life, and the Heritage Foundation. This isn't about policy. These folks don't want you to have control of your bodies, your life, or your decisions.

The solution? The Right to Contraception Act. It’s a simple bill, just a few pages long, that would protect Americans’ right to use basic birth control like IUDs, the pill, and Plan B. On June 5, 2024, Republican senators blocked it, but the fight's not over. We still have the power to push for a vote in the House—and to hold anti-contraception politicians accountable in the next election.
