NIU students should be thankful for condoms

Your students are fortunate to have a Health Service that actively promotes safe and responsible reproductive health services. It ought to give a seminar for Wisconsin legislators who want to pass legislation prohibiting the distribution of all contraception for women and specifically emergency contraception on all University of Wisconsin campuses. They argue access to contraception makes young people promiscuous.

They’re opposed to abortion, but don’t seem to connect the concept the way to reduce abortion is to make contraception – including condoms – easily available.
