A BILL

To promote public health and welfare by expanding and im

proving the family planning services and population research

activities of the Federal Government, and for other purposes. Whereas unwanted births impair the stability and significantly

affect the health and future well-being of each individual

within the family;
Whereas over six and one half million American women are

denied access to modern, effective, medically safe family

planning services due to financial need;
Whereas significant benefits for the family and the community

may be derived from family planning including the reduc-
tion of maternal and infant mortality rates, the reduction of

2

the number of premature births and of crippling and mental

diseases in infants, and the alleviation of poverty; Whereas scientific knowledge concerning human reproduction

and present birth planning technology are insufficient to provide all persons with adequate and acceptable means by

which they may plan their families; Whereas research efforts to develop more effective, medically

safe methods of family planning are not adequate to meet

the needs of people of diverse beliefs and circumstances; Whereas family planning has been recognized nationally and in

ternationally as a universal human right; Whereas it is the policy of Congress to assure the integrity of

the family and full opportunities for each child; to guarantee the right of the family to freely determine the number and spacing of its children within the dictates of individual conscience; to extend family planning services, on a voluntary basis, to all who desire such services: Now, therefore,

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representa2 tives of the United States of America in Congress assembled,
