Rally for Affordable Birth Control

Student outrage over the skyrocketing birth control prices at their college health centers is growing. Students facing doubling, tripling, and even quadrupling contraception prices are now organizing. Feminist Majority Foundation, NARAL Pro Choice America, National Organization for Women, and Planned Parenthood student groups are organizing actions nationwide.

In New York City, students for several colleges and members of groups such as Planned Parenthood of NYC are planning a rally for affordable birth control on November 12th, starting at 5pm in Washington Square Park. The event is being organized by Planned Parenthood of NYC and the NYU student group Voices of Change.
