Letter to the Editor: More education on pregnancy needed

In reply to the article on Roma sterilisations, ["Fewer Roma sterilisations" News Briefs Vol. 7 No. 43 November 12 - 18] I believe it would be beneficial to all involved to start up a programme such as in America, A Planned Parenthood.

This would eliminate many unwanted pregnancies.

Also a special clinic where many women could receive instructions on contraceptives and giving out the pill to all that need it. It would save Slovakia millions on welfare payments etc.
