Forms an organization that works to advance the ability of every woman to achieve full reproductive freedom with access to the safest, most effective, and preferred methods for controlling her fertility and protecting her health. Focuses on the demand for regimens of emergency contraception to be medically accepted and accessible to women who need or want them; the potential to expand options for early abortion through education and advocacy about medical abortion (i.e. non-surgical or non-invasive abortion) and early surgical abortion; the desperate need for woman-controlled methods of HIV/AIDS and STI prevention, products known as microbicides; a commitment to educating health care providers and consumers about intrauterine device technology; and leading the reproductive health community in the search for emerging issues and new technologies.
