ACOG has released its “Facts are Important” document highlighting the need for all policy makers and influencers to stick to facts, science, and clinical evidence when deciding upon health care policy. This document responds to the President’s naming of Katy Talento as his top health care advisor. Talento has published that contraceptives are dangerous, and lead to miscarriages and infertility.
Contraceptive coverage is essential to women’s health care, which is why it is imperative that individuals in Congress and within the new Administration rely on well-founded science when speaking on issues that affect millions of women throughout the country. ACOG’s website on contraceptionprovides key information for both providers and patients.
