NFPRHA Applauds House Passage of Right to Contraception Bill 

Washington, DC -- Today, the US House of Representatives passed the Right to Contraception Act of 2022 in a 228-195-2 vote. The following is a statement from Audrey Sandusky, Senior Director, Policy & Communications, at the National Family Planning & Reproductive Health Association (NFPRHA). 

“At a time when access to abortion has been decimated in almost half the country and with the right to privacy on the line, Congress must take every measure imaginable to improve access to contraceptive care. This bill reinforces the fundamental right to contraceptive care for all, by enshrining people’s rights to access a broad range of contraceptive methods and ensuring family planning providers have a right to support their patients with the contraceptive care and education they need without political interference.  

“We congratulate the House for this major legislative win and urge the Senate to take up and pass its companion, introduced by Sens. Edward Markey (D-MA), Mazie Hirono (D-HI), and Tammy Duckworth (D-IL).” 


NFPRHA is a membership organization representing publicly funded family planning providers and administrators nationwide. NFPRHA advances and elevates the importance of family planning in the nation’s health care system and promotes and supports the work of family planning providers and administrators, especially those in the safety net.
