Nurx recognizes the fact that all women should have access to this birth control
By on 27 May 2016
We’ve gathered quotes from a diverse group of women leaders and influencers about the importance of increasing access to birth control and how the Nurx app does exactly that. Today’s quote comes from Rachelle Suissa. Rachelle is the president of the Brooklyn-Queens National Organization for Women (NOW). Follow her on Twitter @Rachelsuis.
“As a leader in the feminist movement for the past 11 years, I think Nurx is bridging the gap in access to affordable birth control for low-income women around the country. By developing a web app that women without smartphones can use to access prescription birth control at an affordable cost, Nurx is bringing the reproductive rights movement into the 21st century by acknowledging that not everyone has the ability to afford high-end prescription drugs. Nurx recognizes the fact that all women should have access to this birth control regardless of the ability to pay which is something that many leaders in our state and national government don’t seem to understand. Thank you for taking the first step in paving the way for low-income women around the country to access birth control.”
