Would you support a charity whose focus was birth control?  

I've been looking for charities whose work includes sex education, such as how to prevent STDs and pregnancy. I have heard of a lot of communities where they have not been educated on such subjects and I perceive this as a large problem. Many poor families keep having children they cannot support and I feel that a little education and the supply of contraceptives to those who wanted them would be very beneficial. I was wondering whether anyone knew of a charity that takes this sort of action, and if not, whether you would support one if it did exist. In my opinion, this could prevent a lot of deaths as a result of protection against STDs and AIDS, as well as controlling the population of communities who are already short of resources. There is an interesting articleon the subject  here: http://www.galtoninstitute.org.uk/Newsletters/GINL9105/Third_World_Aid.htm

I'd love to hear your opinions!
