Right now, around the world, more than 222 million women want something they can’t get: access to modern contraceptives.
Fortunately, countries and other donors are joining together to help these women get what they want, and it’s time for the U.S. to pay its fair share. To help these women gain access to contraception, the U.S. only needs to contribute .03% of its federal budget to international family planning — or $1 billion per year. That’s just $3 from each American.
We want to make sure these women can’t be ignored. Join our tweet-a-thon all day tomorrow to speak up alongside them and demand contraception. Use the hashtag #AWomansWorth to spread the word about family planning and the 222 million women around the world trying to access it. You can find sample tweets here, and you’re welcome to create your own.
