No Joke. Choice Matters. Everywhere.

The video may be funny, but barriers to choice around the world aren’t.

Imagine needing to get your husband’s consent to get birth control, or waiting for hours in a clinic only to be told supplies have run out. That happens!

Pathfinder International is on the ground around the world working to tear down these barriers and we need you to help.

Just $25 can go a long way toward ensuring a woman in Ethiopia has access to contraceptives, or a woman in Bangladesh can deliver with a skilled birth attendant.

I was touched by the fact that women face alot of challenges especially when it comes to matters of reproductive health. It happens a lot here in Kenya and many women die because of inaccessibility to medicare or having poor facilities. I am touched and I am happy that someone shares the same sentiment.

This is no joke. And what's happening in this country, the US, with clinics having to close because of cuts in funding and/or restrictions to access to abortion... this is bringing us closer to being like places in the developing world.

Has anyone at Pathfinder International (or anyone else) started a petition on change.org for countries like those mentioned in the video to change their laws regarding women's access to reproductive health care? If not, I just might! If it's possible to reply to my comment, I'd love to hear back from someone about this so I don't start a duplicitous petition!

I am very much impressed with Pathfinder's work for providing women, men, and adolescents with a range of quality health services—from contraception and maternal care to HIV prevention and AIDS care and treatment in 20 countries. Yours is a movement. I would like to join hands with you in bringing better tomorrow for women. Any work related to me, do inform me please.Keep me updated. Thanks & regards. Let us all join together for Bright 2013.

I'm educated and enlightened and presently expecting a baby (unplanned). Why? Because I couldn't afford to spend time waiting to be attended to at the hospital - I can't afford that luxury of time with the kind of work I do. What about decentralizing birth control services, to include work places too, and not just health facilities?

If I hadn't had choices about reproductive health care, I wouldn't be where I am today. Or rather, I'd probably be pregnant with multiple babies already! Every woman should have the right and ability to choose if--or when--to have kids. No question. Great video Pathfinder!

I've financially supported Pathfinder for years since I don't know of a way to better spend my money. Pathfinder helps the women who get health care (eg, lower childbirth mortality), their families (avoids too many children to support), and the environment (human populations don't outstrip the environment's natural resources and capacity to absorb pollution.) Pathfinder gives me hope that humans can live more happily on this planet.

I didn't find the video amusing. Surely it can't be difficult to find real stories of women in poor countries that would have more emotional impact on potential supporters and are the justification for the work that you do.

I'm grateful to have relatively easy access to birth control. But still, it's somewhat frustrating that insurance companies only allow one to get one month's supply of pills at a time. Hey, people are ... planning ahead and making the most of a trip to a pharmacy is a good thing. Thanks for this funny video about something that's important to so many women, men, and their families.

Ha! What's even more depressing is that 18 miles in the developing world is roughly a 10 hour walk. Imagine taking time off to visit a clinic only to find out you have to walk 10 hours to access the services you need. Ugh. It doesn't have to be that way though. Thank you Pathfinder for all the work you do! Proud to be a donor/supporter/former-employee.
