Contraception: Good for Women, Good for the Country

Did you know that the GOP war on contraception is back? From TPM, earlier this month:


This spring’s political contretemps over access to contraception are returning to Capitol Hill — and this time Republicans are trying to tie the issue to must-pass legislation, foreshadowing a possible government shutdown standoff unless conservatives back down and temporarily agree to set aside earlier grievances.

Given the GOP's inability to quit this issue, it's a good thing we have this new video from the always-excellent Guttmacher institute, outlying the real benefits of contraception (they have a fact sheet to go with the video here), who needs it, who uses it, and why it works for society.

It's crucial to counter the misinformation out there, no  matter how ridiculous it is. Pass this video along to your friends.
