The 2012 National Back Up Your Birth Control Day of Action is Wednesday, March 28, 2012!
Back Up Your Birth Control is a national campaign to raise awareness and expand access to emergency contraception (EC). This year's campaign is focused on emphasizing that EC is a safe and effective method of birth control that prevents pregnancy after unprotected sex.
