“Women and men deserve to have the peace of mind in knowing they have access to safe FDA-approved contraception. This law does that by preventing any state from banning FDA-approved contraception for use as contraception.”
“Access to birth control is essential in treating a wide array of medical conditions, decreasing the risk of certain cancers, and for planning families,” said Rep. Axne. “People deserve the right to make decisions about when they want to have children, and the ability to access contraceptives is critical to that. The decision last month in Dobbs v. Jackson decision sadly threatens that right, which is why it is so critical that Congress acts to ensure Iowans and all Americans are able to access birth control if they want it.”
