VIDEO: No Joke. Choice Matters. Everywhere

Click to play the video

Can you imagine walking 18 miles to get contraceptives? Or being told your clinic is out of stock? It seems absurd right? But in many countries, this happens every day. Doctors are overworked, under supported, and stressed out. Women struggle to care for their large families and access the services they need, sometimes waiting hours, even overnight to visit a clinic.

We try to make it funny in this video but the reality is no joke. Choice matters about if, when, and how often to have children; choice matters about getting tested for and STI or HIV; choice about sexual and reproductive health matters for all women, everywhere.

If you agree, share this video today! The more people who understand the issues, the more voices we have calling for change.

Even here in the United States, we see barriers to reproductive choice. However, oftentimes those barriers are even more challenging in developing countries. Shannon Wu, one of our donors said, “Most women in America have access to knowledge and health care when it comes to their sexual and reproductive life. But in other parts of the world, women’s health is almost always the last thing to be discussed or taken care of, if at all."

Right now more than 222 million women want, but lack access to contraceptives. One woman dies every 90 seconds during pregnancy or childbirth because she lacks access to maternal care. And HIV is the number one cause of death for women of reproductive age in the developing world.

If you want to change these numbers, and improve the lives of women, take a simple action now: share the video. Help start an important conversation with your friends, family, girlfriends, boyfriends, husbands, wives, colleagues that reproductive health care is no joke. Choice matters.

We’d love to know what you think of the video. Did it remind you of the reproductive health care issue that drives you to make a difference?  Use the comments below and thank you for sharing!

I had no idea why this was happening at first. I don't want anyone to misconstrue this: I liked this book. Prenatal I didn't read about this until I had already started taking it. From now on I will be freezing bottles of milk. She felt so good that she is now handling 2 jobs - one at the hospital ER and one in a doctor's office - and she started back to college to become a Physician Assistant. Prenatal
