After 20 years in the U.S., medication abortion is finally widely accessible through telehealth. But a looming Supreme Court ruling could change all that.

To get ahead of that ruling, Planned Parenthood is asking companies to become a “Business for BC” and pledge that they will guarantee employee birth control coverage, whether or not they are required to do so by law.
