Former Colorado Gov. and Democratic presidential hopeful John Hickenlooper unveiled in a Medium blog a new plan to expand access to long-acting reversible contraception (LARC), such as IUDs, if elected.
Details: Hickenlooper said it'd be a national version of the one he introduced as Colorado governor. He'd subsidize costs for women who can't afford LARC, increasing Title X funding by $700 million, and repeal the Trump administration's federal family planning funding ban on groups like Planned Parenthood that offer abortions and abortion referrals.
- Hickenlooper discussed the plan on MSNBC's "The Rachel Maddow Show."
