Is there an ‘unmet need’ for contraception and abortion in Africa?

Some Africans say that family planning programs are a new form of colonialism

This summer, UK Prime Minister Theresa May committed to spend £200 million on “family planning” in Africa and Asia. More accurately, “another”£200 million, because the UK Government has already given vast sums of foreign development money to abortion giant Marie Stopes International (MSI): £163 million in UK taxpayer money. And it is not just for contraception provision but abortion provision, including helping to liberalise laws on abortion in developing countries. This money will mainly target Africa, particularly women and girls in the poorest communities. We do not know exactly how much of this allotted money will go towards paying directly for abortions.
