Earlier this week, Donald Trump appointed anti-contraception activist, Teresa Manning, to be the deputy assistant secretary for population affairs at the Department of Health and Human Services. Manning's appointment would give her control over Title X, a program which provides contraceptive services to millions of low-income and uninsured Americans. Such a move would greatly increase the barriers women face in accessing affordable reproductive healthcare and further support the Trump administration’s treatment of women as second-class citizens. In a 2003 interview, anti-contraception activist, Manning claimed “contraception doesn't work.” However, science proves otherwise. If used correctly, the Pill, NuvaRing, and the…Read More

Overwhelming evidence has proven that abstinence only programs have done nothing to reduce teen and unplanned pregnancy rates; however, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently credited increased access to low-cost services as a contributing factor to the overall decline in teen and unintended pregnancy rates nationwide. Research shows that the easier and more affordable birth control is, the more women will use it. This is why, we at Nurx, are making birth control more accessible than ever through our birth control app. Since December, we have also been giving away free birth control to new users who…Read More

Donald Trump thinks I'm equal to him? This is, of course, the same person who paid men on his campaign staff one third more than women, and now expects female White House staffers “to dress like women.” I'll be direct- Trump’s presidency and proposed policies pose a clear and present danger to women and our reproductive freedom. Just a few examples include: Reinstating the “global gag rule” His willingness to shut down the government just to defund Planned Parenthood. And his pick for HHS secretary who vehemently opposes the birth control mandate in the Affordable Care Act. Fortunately, we…Read More

Each year on March 8, people around the world observe International Women's Day.

Today, a nationwide women's strike is taking place in Poland, with protests expected to take place in 60 Polish cities, over a newly proposed law, which would ban all abortions. If enacted, the law also threatens jail time for those who do not comply. Currently, abortion is banned except in cases of rape or incest, to save the life of the mother, or if the fetus will not survive. In September, Polish lawmakers proposed the full ban on abortion. Each year, an estimated 50,000 illegal abortions take place in Poland and the pro-choice activist group, Women on Waves, has…Read More
