The right of the individual to freely and responsibly decide how many children 
to have and when to have them has been the guiding principle in sexual and 
reproductive health, including family planning for decades, but especially since 
1994, when 179 governments came together and adopted the groundbreaking 
Programme of Action of the International Conference on Population and 
Development, the ICPD.
