Pro-Life Christians looks to protect access to contraception in Alabama

As Alabama lawmakers scramble to pass legislation to protect fertility treatments after the state Supreme Court’s ruling on frozen embryos effectively banned IVF, Rep. Anthony Daniels of Huntsville is thinking ahead to protect what many worry they are coming for next: birth control.   

Pro-Life Christians looks to protect access to contraception in Alabama

On Tuesday, March 5th, Daniels filed the Right to Contraception Act—which would protect Alabamans’ right to basic contraception like the pill, IUDs, and condoms. 

The bill has already garnered outspoken support from pro-life faith leaders in the state. 

Dr. Randy Brinson, president of the Christian Coalition of Alabama, said he thinks a right to contraception is aligned with a pro-life stance because it helps prevent unplanned pregnancies.

“There’s a huge difference between a right to contraception and the ability of people to obtain contraception,” said Brinson, “and taking a baby’s life that’s already been fertilized in the womb, implanted and has a heartbeat.”

Attorney Eric Johnston, author of Alabama’s abortion ban, and the president of the Alabama Pro-Life Coalition, said he also supports a right to contraception.

Pro-life leaders are not the only ones who support the Right to Contraception Act—the vast majority of Americans do too. Americans for Contraception released a poll last month showing that 81% of voters support the federal version of the Right to Contraception Act, which 195 House Republicans voted against in 2022.
