There is little contention in the modern Commonwealth about the right of individuals in principle to acquire knowledge of means of contraception. Although in some jurisdictions less than two decades have passed since communication of contraceptive knowledge to the unmarried was classified as a crime against morality, family planning services and knowledge of means to avoid unwanted pregnancy are now promoted with few legal limits. Constraints of taste may control means of advertisement of contraceptive services and methods, and explicit commercial advertising for instance on television is rarely found, but restrained public service advertising is being developed to carefully targeted populations.
