(hell, yeah) Scarleteen

so very much more at: scarleteen.com
we heart it.

September 26th is World Contraception Day. Yay! We love contraception THIS MUCH. We love the potential ability for everyone to always be able to decide if and when they’re going to become or be part of a pregnancy; if and when they do or don’t create a family, if and when reproduction is going to be part of their sexual lives. 

We’d love it even more if that kind of agency and access was a reality for every single person on the planet.

Today, help yourself to some of our content on contraception:
