Statement on HRA Pharma’s Application for OTC Status for Birth Control

Advocates for Youth welcomes the news that HRA Pharma has filed the first-ever application for an over-the-counter birth control pill. As part of the Free the Pill Coalition, Advocates convened the #FreethePill Youth Council, a network of young people nationwide working to make birth control available over the counter, covered by insurance with no age restriction.

Statement on the LGBTQI+ Data Inclusion Act

Advocates for Youth is thrilled that the House of Representatives passed the LGBTQI+ Data Inclusion Act (H.R.4176) last week. We urge the Senate to join their colleagues in taking this critical step to ensure that LGBTQI+ people aren’t left in the dark.

Statement on Hyde-Free FY 2023 Budget

After years of ongoing advocacy, Advocates for Youth applauds the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Labor, Health and Human Services, Education and Related Agencies for introducing its FY 2023 spending bill without unnecessary and discriminatory restrictions on federal funding of abortion for the second year in a row. 

Statement on SCOTUS decision in New York State Rifle & Pistol Asso­ci­ation Inc. v Bruen

The Court has let the gun lobby’s interests take precedence over basic public safety. Advocates for Youth condemns this cruel and dangerous dereliction of duty. Nearly every day, we are losing young people to gun violence, and it has become a leading cause of death among U.S. kids and teens. Our government must stop enabling these terrible tragedies and must prioritize the health and well-being of young people.
