To mark the birthday of our founder, Tim Black, CBE, who recently passed away, we look back on a recent opinion piece by him and colleagues Phil Harvey and Christopher Purdy.

In this piece from The European Journal of Contraception and Reproductive Health Care, Tim, Phil and Chris identify six 'sacred cows' that we must address if we are to advance the cause of family planning: to ensure the right of every individual to have children by choice, not chance. 

With thanks to DKT International for the link to the article on their website.
