Advocates for Youth Applauds Recommendation to Allow Young People to Buy Birth Control Pills Over-The-Counter

Advocates for Youth commends the members of the FDA’s Nonprescription Drugs Advisory Committee and the Obstetrics, Reproductive, and Urologic Drugs Advisory Committee for following the science and recommending unanimously that a birth control pill be made available over the counter without age restriction.

“I’m thrilled the Advisory Committee saw through myths, misconceptions, and condescension today, and unanimously recommended the FDA bring a birth control pill over-the-counter without age restrictions,” said Debra Hauser, President of Advocates for Youth.

Statement on Florida Immigration Bills and the End of Title 42

Advocates for Youth condemns the racist and anti-immigrant bills passed in Florida this week, including the new law barring Chinese citizens from purchasing land in Florida and a bill that makes helping an undocumented person a felony and forces hospitals to record the immigration status of patients.  These bills will deepen the harm Florida and other states continue to inflict on migrants. 

Statement on Florida’s Anti-Trans Bills

Advocates condemns the Florida legislature for the passage of a series of anti-transgender bills.  We are deeply saddened by the trauma and discrimination Florida is working to inflict on gender expansive young people and their families.
