Planned Parenthood Affiliates of California, California Family Health Council, and NARAL Pro-Choice California are proud to work with Senator Pavley to champion evidence-based reproductive healthcare policies to improve birth control access with the introduction of SB 999.
For women not planning a pregnancy, having a consistent and readily accessible supply of birth control is essential. Unlike with most other prescriptions, studies show that having a 12-month supply of birth control is actually a health benefit – and that there are serious health risks associated with running out.
“Increasing access to birth control is good for women, families and the health of our state,” said Kathy Kneer, President and CEO of Planned Parenthood Affiliates of California. “This bill demonstrates California’s continued commitment to breaking down barriers to reproductive health care access and its leadership in policies that help reduce unintended pregnancies.”
