Dear [Decision Maker],
I believe family planning is critical to improving women's health and well-being, as well as the health and well-being of families and communities. As your constituent, I encourage you to support robust funding for international family planning and reproductive health programs. With an estimated 222 million women in developing countries lacking access to contraception, the need could not be more real.For every $100 million the US spends on family planning, 1.5 million unintended pregnancies are avoided, 4,000 maternal deaths are prevented, and 20,000 fewer children will lose their mothers. International family planning and reproductive health programs are a smart investment. Funding for these programs has proven to save money in other vital development areas including maternal health, education, malaria, water and sanitation, and immunization. I hope you will support President Obama's call for XX for international family planning in the budget.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP]
