Family Planning and Family Economics. 1970 White House Conference on Children, Report of Forum 16. (Working Copy).
Department of Health, Education, and Welfare, Washington, DC.
Few actions of the next decade will be more pertinent to the welfare of America's children than what we do about two of the most basic determinants of the quality of life of our children and their families--distribution of income among families in and by our society and size of the family and of our society. In regard to these fundamental issues, four challenges to the seventies emerge: (1) achievement of more equitable distribution of family income, (2) helping children and their families understand the full meaning of human sexuality and family planning in their lives, (3) making family planning services available to all Americans by 1974 and (4) stabilization of a population figure for our nation. Before any of the forum recommendations can become a reality, two fundamental shifts in economic direction must occur (reallocation of national expenditures from military uses and restructuring the distribution of government income from federal to state levels). Only then can federally financed and administered systems of income support, supportive human services, family planning services, and a population stabilization figure be realized. (Author/WY)
