California has a large unmet need for
publicly funded family planning services, in some counties as high as 50
percent. Thousands of women struggle each month to access birth control
and AB 2348 will help! AB 2348 will allow registered nurses to
dispense birth control under a standardized procedure.
Health organizations like Planned
Parenthood, the California Family Health Council, American Nurses Association -
California, and California Primary Care Association all support AB 2348 because
it’s common sense legislation. Ensuring women have timely access to birth
control prevents unintended pregnancies and creates better health outcomes.
action TODAY to contact Governor Brown in support of AB 2348.
I am counting on you to support AB 2348 (Mitchell) and stand up for women's health!
Dear [Decision Maker],
I urge you to support the Access to Birth Control Bill - AB 2348 (Mitchell). Californians, like me, overwhelmingly support access to birth control to reduce unintended pregnancies (89% according to PPIC 2009). Yet, even in California thousands of women must wait for hours in a medical office or weeks for an appointment just to get birth control. AB 2348 will help remove these barriers by allowing registered nurses to dispense birth control under a standardized procedure - a common practice developed collaboratively by doctors, nurses and health center leadership to ensure quality care and patient safety.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP]
