For Educators

Help educate and empower young women in your community by using this lesson plan during your next group meeting.

Educators Get Involved!

Young people need medically accurate and complete sex education – education that includes information about abstinence, contraception and even emergency contraception (also called emergency birth control, the morning after pill, or Plan B®). Educating young people about emergency birth control pills can help them to prevent pregnancy and /or abortion. Emergency birth control pills exist to help young women prevent unplanned and unwanted pregnancy.

Studies show that young women who are given emergency birth control pills do not use them in place of their regular birth control. Research further shows that once informed about emergency birth control pills, most young women would take the pills in an emergency. So, please educate youth about emergency birth control pills.
