Unless Congress decides to put us colonials in our place (boldface mine):
D.C. Council Chairman Phil Mendelson, 62, introduced a measure supported by the National Organization for Women that would allow women to obtain a year’s supply of birth control in a single prescription. Mendelson said the legislation “makes the use of contraceptives more likely because women who are unable to access birth control often forgo birth control all together.”
I’ve known several women who think having to fill monthly prescriptions is a real pain, especially for those who travel abroad routinely. Well done, councilman.
