Abstract

Ann Cartwright's recent book, "Parents and Family Planning Services" provide insight into the medical methods of distributing contraceptive advice in Britain where friends and relatives are the most important sources of birth control advice. The percentage of people who consider the family doctor the most important source of birth control has risen from 20% in 1968 to 28% in 1970, while family planning clinics as the stated source have dropped from 12% to 9% during the same period. Cartwright's book also examines some of the attitudes among doctors which make the spread of birth control advice difficult.
