To the Editor With regard to the Viewpoint1 by Ciccariello in a recent issue of JAMA Internal Medicine on the consequences of defunding Planned Parenthood, we agree that primary care physicians should learn how to provide long-acting reversible contraception. Such methods include intrauterine devices (IUDs) and implants, which are rapidly reversible, highly effective, and are the recommended first-line contraceptive options by the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists.2 These methods, however, remain underused in the United States.3
