French Health Minister Olivier Vieran said on Thursday that France would make access to birth control free for women between the ages of 25 and 25.
“Contraceptive use has decreased in some young women and this is mainly due to financial reasons,” she said. Deserted France 2 told television.
“It is unbearable that women cannot protect themselves, if they want to make this choice, they cannot access contraception because it is very expensive,” she added.
Until now, free access to contraception in France was 18 years old.
