How a Billionaire-Backed IUD Is Fighting the GOP War on Women's Bodies

LilettaIf you’re looking for empirical evidence that the GOP and its “pro-life” boosters are less anti-abortion than they are anti-sex, look no further than the case of Liletta.

The new intrauterine device became available in April, and family planning clinics around the country began stocking it, often in bulk, this summer.
