Sen. Somers supports increased access to reproductive health care

March 21, 2023

Sen. Heather Somers was recently at a CVS in Groton, supporting another way to increase access.

This would allow pharmacists to prescribe and dispense birth control.

“We are not trying to take away OBGYN or gynecologists jobs or visits we encourage people to see their doctor. This is really for the person who doesn’t have access to the doctor, doesn’t have an appointment and wants to prevent a pregnancy,” said Somers (R – Groton).
