RICHMOND - The Virginia General Assembly has passed legislation allowing pharmacists to provide women a full year of birth control pills at once if prescribed by a doctor.
HB 2267, sponsored by Del. Eileen Filler-Corn (D-Springfield) and titled the Birth Control Access Act, has been sent to Gov. Terry McAuliffe to be signed into law.
Women’s rights activists praised the measure’s passage. Many insurance policies currently limit women to a 90-day supply of birth control pills.
