Family planning in Kenya
The international community seems to be making a bit of a one-sided push.
The article was quite informative on a number of statistical issues. However, a reading of the article also reveals the unfortunate conflation of the terms “family planning” and “contraception.” Contraception is but one aspect of family planning, and the two terms should not be used interchangeably. Lest this view be seen as nitpicking, let us examine the implications of equating family planning with contraception.I think the author is a Kenyan woman, for what it's worth.
