The U.N.'s top population official wants governments to do more to ensure that women have access to family planning.
The newly re-elected Obama administration should promote contraception as a human right, domestically and throughout the world, a veteran House member said Wednesday as a new report on global family-planning was released.
Last month, the U.N.'s top population official, Babatunde Osotimehin, said the world will add a billion people within a decade, further straining the planet's resources.
Speaking to The Associated Press at the World Economic Forum in Davos, he said many women want to have fewer children and that "30 percent of those who die giving birth we can prevent with family planning."
