Program

By providing free and low-cost birth control, we enable women to pursue education and employment opportunities and plan for children — if they want — on their own timelines.

We serve women in every corner of South Carolina, giving them the chance to live life on their own terms. This is especially critical for low-income and uninsured women in rural areas.

We're making substantial progress.

Since the launch of our statewide birth control access program in 2017, unwanted births have decreased by 44%.2 And our 140 partner-clinics have provided contraceptive services to 375,000+ women.

A 360-degree approach to birth control access.

Grounded in decades of work, our program grew from New Morning’s long history of delivering birth control access and reproductive education to women and families throughout the state. A complex ecosystem of diverse partners — like community and rural health clinics, hospitals, universities, nursing programs, community-reaching organizations and more — the model is unparalleled.
