Emergency contraception – it’s over the counter. Why not in your desk drawer?
Advocates have long relied on emergency contraception as an option for rape survivors. Yet, we know many of the women we work with experience pressure around birth control choices and sex. We don’t have to wait for someone to tell us about it. At intake, we can offer information about emergency contraception to everyone we work with. By making emergency contraception available on site at our programs, we are supporting a woman’s control over her body. Learn about emergency contraception -- what it is, how it works, who can get it and how to talk about it.
