Bow down to the old line state.
Maryland just passed the most progressive birth control law and we couldn’t be more thrilled!
The new law gets rid of all out-of-pocket costs for birth control, vasectomies and emergency contraceptives (Plan B, etc.) as well as any pre-authorization needed for IUDs.
Even more shocking? The law was passed under a republican governor. (Yes, you read that correctly.)
The law officially kicks in January 2018.
Ok, other 49 states: your move.
