NEW SHORT FILM: I Love My IUD!
How Colorado's big experiment pays off for women and the planet
NEW SHORT FILM: I Love My IUD!
By Women at the Center / womenatthecenter.org
Jul 15, 2015

This 7mins film, produced by Women at the Center, tells the inspiring story of the Colorado Family Planning Initiative, which provides free long-acting reversible contraception (like IUD’s and implants) to young women who couldn’t otherwise afford them. It’s pretty common sense: when access to birth control is easier and cheaper, women are empowered to plan their families, and to become parents when the time is right. As you’ll see, this can be life changing.

As our world becomes hotter, more crowded, and more prone to extreme weather, it’s a good time to ask what things look like when women get what they want in terms of reproductive health.

Here in Colorado, the answer is clear – investing in voluntary family planning is one of the most impactful waysto enhance human rights, boost health, education and prosperity, and benefit the natural world we all depend on.

Check out I Love My IUD and let us know what you think!
