Today, almost 100 years later, the actual role of birth control has expanded greatly. As the wife of an obstetrician/gynecologist, I have learned how contraception is used to treat or prevent many health conditions that would otherwise be painful, debilitating and possibly life-threatening for many women.
President Barack Obama has listened to medical experts and scientists by making sure that contraception is affordable to all women as well as supporting a health care plan that ensures women can get other important screenings and services that are lifesaving. Isn't that what we all want? With President Obama women can feel secure that women's health care is safe from returning to the days of Margaret Sanger and starting that fight all over again.
