Affordable Birth Control Pills To Hit College Campuses

It’s going to be raining birth control pills on college campuses now that the “Affordable Birth Control Act” has passed, which, as part of omnibus spending bill, will give college health clinics and community health centers affordable access to birth control pills. In 2007, due to federal cost-cutting, students were forced to pay up to 10 times more for the pill than they had before. Some went from paying $5 or less per month to paying $30 to $50. Some college pharmacies stopped stopped stocking birth control pills altogether. Now uninsured students won’t have to view the pill as an extravagant luxury and can enjoy the tons of sex they’re having without risking an unintended pregnancy. []
