Solutions for Reproductive Rights: Contraception


  • Family planning services should be cost-free for patients who cannot afford to pay for them and more accessible to women of all socio-economic classes. Family planning funding programs should be reauthorized and fully funded.
  • Family planning services should be available to all, including undocumented immigrants.
  • PA schools should replace abstinence-only education with comprehensive, evidence-based sexuality education. Funding of abstinence-only programs should be discontinued.
  • Emergency contraception should be available at all hospitals that treat sexual assault survivors.
  • Emergency contraception should be readily available at all state-licensed pharmacies and available without prescription for all females of child-bearing potential.
  • PA should withdraw state funding from crisis pregnancy centers that disseminate misinformation on contraception, pregnancy, or abortion.
