The Centre for Communication and Social Impact (CCSI) has urged the National Assembly to include family planning rights in the nation’s constitution to enable Nigerians determine freely and responsibly the number and spacing of their children. This was contained in a statement issued in Abuja on Tuesday and signed by the CCSI Executive Director, Mrs. Babafunke Fagbemi, to commemorate the 2018 World Population Day themed: “Family Planning is a Human Right.” According to her, the right to determine the spacing of children and access to information and availability of the full range of safe and effective family planning methods are fundamental to saving the lives of women and adolescents as well as a key factor in the realization of the Sustainable Development Goals by 2030.
