NBC 29 News Senator Tim Kaine Backs Birth Control Bill

Originally published on May 24, 2016 on NBC by NBC 29 Staff


U.S. Senator Tim Kaine, D-VA, is backing a bill he says will secure women's access to contraception at pharmacies.

Kaine and many of his fellow Democrats in the U.S. Senate have cosponsored the "Access to Birth Control Act."

They say this legislation would ensure women with valid prescriptions for birth control are not denied or intimidated when requesting these products.
