Dispensing Self-Administered Hormonal Contraception

The ability to decide whether and when to have a child is essential to people’s health and ability to participate equally in the economic, political, and social life of the nation. Access to contraception is associated with improved birth outcomes and child health, reductions in morbidity and mortality rates, and a decreased risk of developing several reproductive cancers, and contraception is used to treat various menstrual disorders.

Despite this, many people with reproductive capacity are unable to access contraceptive health care that is right for them. For this reason, the NYCLU welcomes the proposed rule and offers suggestions to strengthen it to better achieve its promised goal of expanding access to contraception for as many people as possible.

As bold as the spirit of New York, we are the NYCLU.
