Fordham students angry over anti-birth control policy set up rogue clinic for students to receive prescriptions

A group of Fordham students want better access to birth control, even if they have to create their own clinic.

Unable to do it at their own school, dozens of students crowded Wednesday at a make-shift clinic a block from Fordham’s Lincoln Center campus to see a doctor, give their medical history and receive a prescription for birth control.

Bridgette Dunlap, a member of the Fordham Law Students for Reproductive Justice and organizer of Prescribe Fordham said that the school’s birth control policy is extremely confusing.

“Our insurance is required by law to cover birth control but students have to travel off campus to Planned Parenthood or other doctors to receive a prescription,” she said. [more]
