Melinda Gates: #Contraception Is Not Controversial | TEDxChange - What difference would it make if all women in the world, even the poorest, could make decisions about when and how many children to have? 200 million #women who want them, don't have access to contraceptives. We don't talk about this inequity because the uncontroversial idea of deciding when to have a child has somehow become shrouded in controversy. And the victims of this paralysis are the poorest people in the world. #talks
