New Zealand’s new birth control plan for female beneficiaries labelled “intrusive”
Shannon Buckley | May 8 2012 | comment  
The New Zealand government hopes to reduce beneficiaries by offering those on benefits and their children free long acting contraception such as long term contraceptive injections, implants and intra-uterine devices.

It certainly sends a strong message that New Zealand doesn’t want people on benefits having children.
