“You Are A Man. Why Are You Interested in Family Planning?” 

December 1, 2013 — By Peter Belden

Peter Belden, writing for RH Reality Check:

 Most people perceive family planning and reproductive rights as women’s issues.  I think that is largely the fault of those of us who work in the field of family planning and reproductive rights. We talk primarily about the benefits this field has for women’s health and autonomy.  While these benefits are great, I believe that when we focus only on them, we fail explain to many audiences why they might also be interested in family planning and reproductive rights.
