Abstract

The author agrees with the United Teheran Declaration of Human Rights which declared the right of each couple to choose the size of their own family. Government policies must preserve and increase informed choice for all couples. The Supreme Court recognized the right of all married couples to practice birth control in a 1965 decision; the Court extended this right to all persons in 1972. The 1970 Family Planning Services and Population Research Act involved the United States government in family planning support here and abroad. By 1973 organized family planning programs were serving more than 3.2 million women. They had been extended geographically too. Fertility research is being conducted. Before 1980 family planning programs will be integrated into general health care systems with comprehensive health care insurance covering the bills.
