VOTE. Make yours count on November 6. Find out where candidates stand on birth control and other women's health issues at plannedparenthoodaction.org (search for "2012 score card"). If you're not registered, get started at gottavote.org.
MAKE NOISE. Are your state legislators working to limit birth control? Call, e-mail, send them a letter (locate their contact info at senate.gov and house.gov). Tell your friends to do the same. When elected officials hear from voters, it can make a big difference.
EXPRESS YOURSELF. Grab a marker and sheet of paper and jot down how, when, or why birth control is important to you. Have a friend snap a pic of you holding your sign and tweet it to us! Make us laugh, fume, or simply relate. Go to http://www.womenshealthmag.com/BirthControlRocks for details and to see some examples.
JOIN FORCES. Add your name to the Planned Parenthood pledge to tell legislators you're "watching, thinking, acting, and voting." Go to womenarewatching.org.
