Wins

The FDA approved ella, a new, more effective emergency contraceptive that can work up to five days after unprotected sex.

Our great state looks to expand access to free contraceptive services through Medicaid! “The state health department estimates that 11,064 unintended pregnancies were avoided through the program in 2008, saving the state about $139.1 million, which would have been needed to cover births and subsequent health care for those children.”

Officials in Arkansas start to wise up to the fact that abstinence-only sex education does not work, and consider abandoning that policy and instituting comprehensive sex education, instead.

Someone stands up for the rights of low-income, pregnant women.
