Devex Examines Terminology Surrounding Family Planning, Contraception

Devex: Out with ‘family’ planning, in with ‘future’ planning
“…Today, the two words that have so long acted as the umbrella term for women’s ability to choose the spacing and timing of their births are no longer serving young people who aren’t managing their reproductive health in the context of marriage. Adolescents view their need for access to contraception not just as a way to decide when to become pregnant, but as a path for them to plan their education, their relationships, their finances, and their futures as a whole…” (Rogers, 6/28).
