State(s) All States
Policy Areas Civil Rights, Health
Policies aimed to increase access to Long Acting Reversible Contraception (LARC), like intrauterine devices (IUDs) and implants must include safeguards to protect against reproductive coercion. To ensure that legislation protects the autonomy and respect of patients, this resource provides guiding questions that reproductive rights advocates can ask themselves when analyzing proposed policies related to LARC. The resource also outlines "red flags" in LARC-related legislation or harmful provisions that violate reproductive autonomy and justice.
