Tell President Obama: Invest in International Family Planning

    1. Sponsored by

      Population Connection

There are 222 million women in the developing world who want access to contraception but do not have it. These women experience 62 million unintended pregnancies every year.

Even with recent increases, United States funding for international family planning remains 30% below the 1995 level.

It's time for real investment in family planning.

Lack of access to family planning services contributes to a host of devastating consequences for the entire world: resource insecurity, social instability, and maternal and child death. If the United States wants to meet these 21st century challenges, then it is time for a change in direction.

Tell President Obama today that every woman and every couple deserve access to affordable birth control.
