Colorado Bill Would Provide $5 Million to Continue Free Contraception for Teenagers
The Denver Post: Colorado House committee passes bill providing state money for contraception, by Joey Bunch:
A House committee gave its approval Tuesday to a bill to put state money behind a contraception program that supporters say has been a major contributor to reducing teen pregnancies in Colorado.
The bill would provide $5 million next year to continue to provide free or low-cost intrauterine contraceptive devices, called IUDs, to women ages 15 to 19 years at clinics across the state. . . .
