John Seager, president of the Population Connection Action Fund

“…[W]ithout the ability to control when and how to have a family, young people won’t be able to drive the economic and social progress needed to secure a prosperous future for our planet and its inhabitants. Today’s youth are tomorrow’s leaders, and that means governments and the international community would be foolish not to make investing in their reproductive health an immediate priority. … Investments in this arena will certainly help improve the lives of individual young people, but they can also help developing countries, where most youth reside, achieve accelerated economic growth…” (12/16).
