A report calling for access to contraception and abortion in the developing world is an example of ideological colonization and cultural arrogance, warned a family author and scholar.
"By what moral right do Westerners send the message that the world would be a better place with fewer Africans in it?" said Mary Eberstadt, senior research fellow at the Faith and Reason Institute.
"Such campaigns are going to look as ugly in history's rearview mirror as the twentieth-century eugenics movement does today," she told CNA.
Eberstadt was responding to the newly-released Guttmacher-Lancet Commission report, which declared a need for universal access to contraception and birth control within the next 12 years, particularly in the developing world.
