Without access to safe preventive measures, more British Columbians are more likely to have an unplanned pregnancy. For many, an unplanned pregnancy means they have to leave work or drop out of school to take care of the child, if not giving the child up for adoption.

The BC NDP promised free contraception for BC in their 2020 election platform. One year later, they have not made good on their promise.
