As South Carolina’s largest provider of “safety net” birth control services, New Morning leads one of the nation’s most successful contraceptive programs. Since the program launched, SC’s rate of unintended pregnancy has plummeted from 50% to 37% and unwanted births have declined 44%. This has been achieved through a nonprofit clinical network which provides free and low-cost birth control in every country of the state. Today, South Carolinians have the opportunity to get whatever birth control method they choose, regardless of location or socioeconomic status.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I get birth control through New Morning?

Yes, people who are low income and uninsured or underinsured can visit to connect to telehealth services or a nearby partner clinic for contraceptive care.

What is No Drama?

No Drama is New Morning’s consumer education campaign, providing information on all FDA-approved birth control methods and connecting people with participating clinics and telehealth services.

Who is eligible for New Morning’s contraceptive health services?

South Carolina residents, students enrolled in colleges and universities in South Carolina, and those living in SC temporarily are eligible to access services.

Does New Morning counsel patients about abortion or refer patients to abortion providers?

No. New Morning connects patients to contraceptive health services at local partner clinics. We work to increase access to birth control which research has shown actually decreases unintended pregnancies and abortions. We do not fund abortion services or pharmaceutical products that cause abortions.

Since the FDA approved an over-the-counter birth control pill, why is New Morning still needed?

New Morning is South Carolina’s largest provider of “safety net” birth control services. With a monthly cost of $20, over the counter birth control (Opill) is not affordable for many South Carolinians. We offer free or low-cost birth control to individuals who are low-income and uninsured or underinsured.

How is New Morning funded?

New Morning is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit and depends upon grants and charitable donations by individuals. Our annual audits are clean, and we have received the highest designation from GuideStar/Candid.
