This small, innovative organization works to advance reproductive health policies by identifying and investigating emerging topics and sharing its research and findings with partner organizations, opinion leaders, and the public. During the last grant period, the invaluable advice about messaging that the Project gave a number of state advocates was credited with their successful defeat of onerous abortion restrictions. Over the next several years, the organization plans to articulate the importance of safe, affordable abortion care, particularly for low-income women; the need to expand access to safe, effective contraceptive technologies, including over-the-counter sale of oral contraceptives; the truth behind myths and misinformation about birth control; and new research about reproductive health and toxic chemicals.

The Reproductive Health Technologies Project works to advance reproductive health policies by identifying and investigating emerging topics—for example, the concern that birth control pills may pollute water—and disseminating its research and findings, including guides for effective messaging to partner organizations, opinion leaders, and the public. The Project develops research-based public affairs materials that can be used by other organizations, often playing a behind-the-scenes role in advocacy efforts such as making the morning after pill (emergency contraception) available over the counter.
