"Better Access to Contraceptives for Parents Means Better Outcomes for Children" - New York Times. 10/09/2013.

This NYT piece cites the importance of Martha Bailey's analyses of decades worth of data on how U.S. policy on the sale of contraceptives and federal funding for family planning clinics has impacted the lives of women, children and families. Looking at long-term effects, Bailey found that individuals’ access to contraceptives increased their children’s college completion, labor force participation, wages, and family incomes decades later.
