At long last someone has taken the control of sex, unwanted pregnancy, and birth control out of the hands of institutions and put it where it belongs - in the hands of the person who should be responsible - the girl or woman who will become pregnant. I am part way through the book and already impressed at what a practical and simple guide this is. This has the potential of becoming the information needed to substantially reduce the number of legal and illegal abortions performed each year on young women, leaving many of them physically and psychologically scarred.
I work with a charity that works with indigenous people living in the rain forests of Costa Rica where there is an inordinately high percentage of teen pregnancies and double the infant mortality rate of the rest of the country. Doctors had tried and failed to get these young women to understand and use birth control pills, condoms, and other ?modern? methods. I will be forwarding a copy of your book to the head of the charity and would be interested in knowing where the Spanish-language version can be obtained.
Thank you for a practical, common sense approach to preventing unwanted pregnancies. I can not commend you strongly enough.

Thank you for your informative mail - and I think you have a good mission in front of you especially in those countries where it is needed due to non-informative practice or habits.
Well, Denmark is quite open minded and sex is today part of the education during the school time why the entire population knows quite a lot related to pregnancy and how to avoid it as long as it is not wanted. Anyone in the world ought to know that insofar our planet is over crowded already now and too many are in difficulties due to lack of food and much more to come.
I wish you all the best,
Scott Rhoades, Human Resources Officer, First Bank
I have only begun to read it so far, but must say it is compelling. Looking forward to digesting it all! Thanks again, I have also shared it with some of my team members who have children at the age where this is very informative.
