Letter: No coercion on birth control

Click to follow
Sir: It is scandalous that David Alton continues to make incorrect and defamatory statements about the International Planned Parenthood Federation's (IPPF) involvement in China (letter, 31 March). We are completely opposed to any form of coercion.

The Family Planning Association of China, a member of IPPF, is a non-governmental organisation and has never had any involvement in clinical services. Instead, it provides information on contraception.

As a leading humanitarian organisation fighting worldwide for women's sexual and reproductive rights, IPPF is deeply concerned at any such unwarranted attack.

Yours faithfully,


Secretary General

International Planned

Parenthood Federation
