TODAY’S THE DAY!It’s the 11th annual Back Up Your Birth Control Day of Action! Wednesday, March 28, 2012 is the official date when we’ll collectively set the record straight about emergency contraception (EC). This year’s theme is EC = BC (as in birth control), to defeat the myths and lies, by spreading the word that EC is a safe and effective form of birth control that prevents pregnancy after sex, but will only work if you are not pregnant!
We’re kicking it all off by launching our brand new EC = BC tumblr!
The images on this tumblr are just a sneak preview of what’s to come. On the Day of Action we’ll post many more of these visuals, so make sure to check back on Wednesday!
And don’t just share the images with your networks – create and submit your own! It’s simple: Take an iconic image, write a catchy slogan to go with the theme, add the tagline EC = BC, then post the images to the tumblr yourself! We know for a fact – this is fun, and even addictive. Get creative! We’ll circulate your images on social media throughout the Day of Action!
