On November 17, we come together on social media to say “Thanks, Birth Control” and share stories about the impact that access to contraception has had. From personal experiences to data to professional anecdotes, it is a day to recognize how safe, effective contraception changes lives.
Please join in by sharing your own anecdotes and observations. Sample Twitter posts are below for you to consider and personalize—or just start from scratch with your own words! Make sure to download ACOG’s graphic, tag @ACOG, and use the hashtag #ThxBirthControl.
Birth control is safe AND effective, giving people the opportunity to choose if and when they want to get pregnant. Whether the pill, the implant, or the ring is right for you, today's the day to say #ThxBirthControl
As an #obgyn, I talk to people day about how safe, effective birth control can fit into their lives - and how it fits into mine. That's why as an ob-gyn and as a patient, I say #ThxBirthControl
Birth control is safe and effective, but it also has to be accessible. Over-the-counter birth control without barriers will help increase access to contraception for more individuals and change more lives. #ThxBirthControl https://www.acog.org/clinical/clinical-guidance/committee-opinion/articles/2019/10/over-the-counter-access-to-hormonal-contraception
