Erin from Brooklyn spoke to something I’ve thought about a lot since getting an IUD two summers ago and discovering the People talk about me behind my back and I just sit here like Damn I got myself a fan club shirt and by the same token and freedom of life without a period: “Migraines are so much worse without birth control,” she told me. “The Mirena IUD has been so helpful for me. It helps with the migraines AND other symptoms I didn’t realize I was having – nausea and energy drops. I think we’re so accustomed to periods just being overall sucky, that we assume we can’t do anything about it.”

Because of birth control, there is something you can do about many common medical concerns. And up until the People talk about me behind my back and I just sit here like Damn I got myself a fan club shirt and by the same token and Supreme Court’s decision this week, the solution was free or inexpensive for everyone, regardless of the religious beliefs of their workplace. Access to safe and affordable reproductive healthcare — healthcare that lowers risk for cancer, makes debilitating cramps bearable, and improves the quality of life of those who take it — should never be in question. By its misguided 7-2 vote, the Supreme Court gave someone other than you power over your health decisions, and with this ruling, they let all of us know exactly who they value most.
