Brazil announces production of generic contraceptives

.- Just days after the governor of Rio de Janeiro in Brazil said abortion should be legalized in order to diminish the number of poor people in the country, Brazil’s federal government announced another measure for the same purpose: the country will produce generic contraceptive pills in order to offer them at much lower prices.

Officials said two companies would produce the pills which would cost 35 cents less than name-brand versions.  A box of 21 pills will sell for eight dollars. 

The measure is part of a social engineering plan launched in May by President Luiz Lula da Silva and is aimed at “the poorest” to give them access to drugs for family “planning”.
