Olivia Rodrigo recently started offering contraceptives at her concert venues and made headlines. It was a decision that prompted both appreciation and sparked controversy. 

Rodrigo worked with the Missouri Abortion Fund and other organizations that support reproductive health to give free contraceptives to audience members at one of her most recent performances on March 12th. 

A type of emergency contraception called Plan B, sometimes known as the morning-after pill, is to avoid pregnancies following unprotected intercourse or contraceptive failure. This was one of the many contraceptives that were passed out at no cost.

“Providing birth control to women at no cost substantially reduces unplanned pregnancies and cuts abortion rates by 62 to 78 percent compared to the national rate,” WUSM wrote.

Rodrigo is ensuring that her fans have access to an essential resource whenever they need it most. She also promotes reproductive health to her fans, particularly those who might not have easy access to pharmacies or medical professionals by keeping Plan B easily accessible at her concerts.

Many people encounter challenges mainly money-wise, while attempting to get contraception, and not everyone has equal access to reproductive health resources.

Giving people access to Plan B at concerts enables them to make smart decisions about their reproductive health and offers them an opportunity to take charge of their bodies and lives without humiliation or judgment.

This project conveys a strong message of empowerment and support to Rodrigo’s fan base, especially the younger generations by showing the importance of talking about reproductive health and protection. 

Her plan helps to make discussions around contraception and reproductive health more common. 

She contributes to reducing the judgment and embarrassment that frequently comes with conversations about sex and contraception by openly discussing these subjects.

Having access to things such as Plan B is essential for preventing unplanned pregnancies in cases where contraception has failed or was not used.

“Each year, about 50 percent of all pregnancies that occur in the United States are not planned… About half of these pregnancies result from women not using contraception and the 

other half from incorrect or irregular use”( Washington University reports).

Naturally, there have been some who disagree with the songwriter’s choice to hand out Plan B at her concerts. Some argue that it weakens the authority of parents or encourages impulse behavior. 

It’s important to understand that providing a Plan B, protects those who could find themselves in a risky circumstance at any age rather than encouraging careless behavior. 

Olivia Rodrigo’s choice to provide Plan B during her concerts is a praiseworthy move in the right direction of advancing accessibility, empowerment, and reproductive health. 

By using her position to speak out on crucial topics like contraception, Rodrigo is not only making an impact on her fans’ lives but also challenging society’s views and advocating for greater reproductive rights. 

As discussions around reproductive health continue to change, bold choices like this, serve as powerful reminders of the importance of access to resources for all individuals.
