The Nurx App is Responding to a Lack of Accessibility in the US

Due to recent changes in the Affordable Care Act under the Trump legislation, it's possible that access to some methods of contraception like birth control will be more limited in the future, however the Nurx app is working to combat this by assisting those who won't have coverage by offering up to two months of free pills.

As Teen Vogue reports, a study conducted by the Urban Institute has shown that "women who don't have health coverage are less likely to consistently use birth control" -- which can result in unwanted pregnancies. By increasing accessibility, the Nurx app enables women in need to have more autonomy over their bodies, while making a political statement that stands up to religious-based laws.
