On Monday afternoon at the Roundhouse, HB 284 moves forward to the House Judiciary Committee where legislators will take the next step in favor of New Mexico women truly taking access to birth control in their own hands.

 

It’s time to simplify the lives of New Mexico women by eliminating the need to visit a pharmacy every 30 or 90 days to refill prescriptions. Access to 12- month contraception is not only a convenience, it would reduce the chance of an unintended pregnancy. If you believe in New Mexico women and families being allowed to managed their reproductive decisions, please show your support at today’s hearing:

HB 284
