Faith-Based Groups Play Important Role In Promoting Access To Family Planning In The Developing World
Contrary to public perception, faith-based organizations from diverse religious backgrounds are key players in the provision of family planning services around the world, and those based in the United States advocate for increased U.S. assistance in this area to boost global health, according to a new Guttmacher Institute analysis. These groups, including some that oppose abortion rights, explicitly connect their advocacy for family planning to their support for maternal and child health projects, based on evidence that birth spacing is critical to lowering numbers of deaths and disabilities. These groups also recognize the crucial role that contraceptives play in reducing the need for abortion overall and unsafe abortion in particular.
