Twitterati showed their support for birth control with the hashtag #TnxBirthControl on Wednesday in response to the Trump Administration ripping the laws of Barak Obama’s Affordable Care Act last month. In addition to this, Nov. 15 also marks the National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy’s fifth annual Thanks, Birth Control Day. It is a day that celebrates how birth control has helped in making women’s lives better and according to contraceptive advocates, with the government hell-bent on limiting access to birth control, acknowledging this day is more important than ever.

According to a report in Newsweek, a new mandate by The Department of Health and Human Services allows employers to remove contraception services if they are against their religious beliefs or moral convictions leading to contraceptive advocates rallying in support of affordable and free birth control and how it is highly essential to women’s health.

Planned Parenthood, a nonprofit that famously provides reproductive health care, tweeted on Wednesday regarding the same. "Today, we will be sharing stories from patients, volunteers, and supporters as we say 'Thanks, Birth Control!' #ThxBirthControl," they wrote.

After Planned Parenthood’s tweet, thousands of Twitter users rallied in support of Planned Parenthood and explained how birth control is important to them on Twitter after the Trump administration moved to deny insurance coverage for contraception, citing religious freedom as the reason.

A Twitter user named, Simar wrote, "the stigmas associated with birth control must end. Women use birth control for much more than preventing pregnancy. Let women decide what to do with their own bodies & give them the access to the care they need. #ThxBirthControl".

Political Writer, Remy Carreiro also showed her support and wrote, "Statistics show that access to contraception economically empowers women, increases their attainment of secondary education, and decreases child mortality rates #ThxBirthControl."

Obstetrician-gynecologist, Erica Schipper strained that Obgyns know better about birth control than politicians. “Obgyns know better than politicians: contraception is essential health care. #ThxBirthControl #HandsOffMyBC @ACOGAction,” she tweeted.

President Donald Trump had said in the Rose Garden in May that, "We will not allow people of faith to be targeted, bullied or silenced anymore."

Trump Administration was questioned about its policies regarding birth control back in May when president and CEO of the National Women’s Law Center, Fatima Goss Graves in a press release had said that the rules made by the Trump Administration were outrageous and showed disregard for women’s rights, health, and autonomy.

"Today’s outrageous rules by the Trump Administration show a callous disregard for women’s rights, health, and autonomy. By taking away women’s access to no-cost birth control coverage, the rules give employers a license to discriminate against women. We will take immediate legal steps to block these unfair and discriminatory rules," Graves said in a press release on Oct. 6 after the new policies were passed.
