Statement By Ms. Foundation President And CEO Anika Rahman On Study Finding Free Birth Control Cuts Abortion Rate

NEW YORK, Oct. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- "The results of the Contraceptive Choice Project reiterate the difference that access to contraception can make in women's lives. With more than 25 million women currently living in poverty, the ability to control when and whether they have children is not just a matter of reproductive freedom, but often the crucial factor in maintaining their family's economic stability.

"The Affordable Care Act takes an important first step in providing birth control with no co-pay to women who are insured. But legislators must take action to ensure that affordable birth control is available to all women, regardless of coverage or status."

About the Ms. Foundation for Women The Ms. Foundation for Women is the leading national social justice foundation committed to building women's power to ignite change. Every day, it helps over 150 grassroots organizations across the US fight for changes like good paying jobs, reproductive health, ending violence against women and girls, and the inclusion of women at decision-making tables. By investing in social justice trailblazers—especially women from low-income communities and communities of color most affected by injustice—it works for a nation in which power and possibility are not limited by gender, race, class, or any other factor. The Ms. Foundation delivers funding, builds skills, develops leaders, connects activists with allies, and amplifies the voices of our grantees to create change that benefits women, families and communities. ms.foundation.org
