"Life or death is a political decision", reads this poster from the International Parliamentarians' Conference in Ottawa, Canada. At the conference, elected representatives from 72 countries and territories pledged to save lives by striving to allocate up to 10 per cent of their nations' development budgets for population and reproductive health programmes. This poster asks if your government has made the same committment.
