Will birth control matter in the 2012 election?  It very well may, based on issues like the Blunt Amendment, the fight over no-co-pay contraception, GOP promises to de-fund Title X, and even “fertilized egg-as-person” bills that could cut off access to affordable birth control.

But it’s not just about preventing pregnancy, as one mother explains. It’s about protecting dreams, and ensuring every girl and woman has the same opportunities as their male counterparts.
