The notion of population was discussed scientifically in 1994 at Cario during the international conference of Population and development where it was highlighted that not just poverty but lack of development is population explosion. During subsequent years the focus shifted to women\'s reproductive rights. Apart from physiological phenomenon, it was recognized that reproduction is also a social issue especially in developing world where around 40% pregnancies are unwanted. Hence we need to look at women empowerment from a broader perspective, from their right to education to have the freedom to choose work for being economically independent.
Reproductive right it its true sense is to have the control on their bodies which eventually translated into reproductive health.
To conclude action at various levels is required to address this issue.
