Radio: Taking a Stand on financial incentives for long-term contraception and sterilisation

BBC Radio 4, Tuesday 9 February, 9am or 9.30pm, available indefinitely via the iPlayer.

“Fergal Keane talks to Barbara Harris, whose organisation pays drug- and alcohol-addicted women to take long-term contraception.

Barbara’s experience of fostering babies born to those addicted to drugs and alcohol led her to one conclusion: that these women should be offered financial inducement to be sterilised, or given long-term contraception to stop them having children they are unable to care for. Founded over a decade ago in the United States, her organisation, Project Prevention, has so far made payments to over 3,000 women.”
