Good News for Sexually Active College Students

President Obama has signed a provision in the budget bill that offers incentives to drug makers to offer discount for birth control pills at college health clinics!

This is fabulous news for sexually active students who saw substantial spikes in prices over the last two years!

Planned Parenthood Federation of America president Cecile Richards called the legislation "a victory for women's health and especially for women who have struggled to afford the rising costs of basic contraception in these tough economic times."

Whether drug makers will actually offer discount is still unclear. Fingers crossed!
