This local health initiative has expanded birth control access

Former Governor of Delaware Jack Markell wrote an op-ed for CNN calling on governors to make expanding birth control access a part of their agenda. Markell argues that doing so is a common-sense way to increase opportunity.

“The national conversation today focuses on partisanship, bickering and talking heads. But there are so many examples of common-sense, effective solutions at the state and local level. Yes, even initiatives to expand birth control access. Our work in Delaware with Upstream demonstrates the success of a public-private partnership in a remarkably short period that’s replicable and sustainable. By empowering women to choose when and if to become pregnant, the ripple effects will benefit generations of Delawareans. Future governors across the country have a responsibility to take a step back from the partisan rhetoric and look at what really works if they want to run on opportunity.”
