Tell the government it's time to cover contraceptives:
The ability to prevent or delay pregnancy allows women to control their bodies and how they live their lives.
But this basic right is increasingly unaffordable for many Canadians who don’t have access to a subsidized drug plan. And that’s particularly unfair since the costs of family planning fall disproportionately to women.
New Democrats are calling on the federal government to work with the provinces to ensure the full cost of prescription contraception is covered.
It’s a practical solution that will improve access to birth control options for women.
