BUENOS AIRES, June 28 ( – The Argentine Society of Medical and Biological Ethics objected to government programs to combat poverty which focussed on contraception. “Poverty is not resolved by combating the poor and filling them with dangerous ‘human pesticides,’  which have many secondary and collateral effects,” said an appeal. The society asked of government “instead of distributing contraceptives,  [that] they offer social justice, work, education and health.”
