Coercion and Long-Term Contraceptives
Hastings Center Report. 1995 Jan-Feb; 25(1): S19-S22.
...It should be remembered, however, that coercion is not always unjustified or improper. Some socially desirable ends can only be achieved through mutually agreed-upon coercive policies, such as taxation and immunization. Too often coercion is used as a generalized term of abuse. Incentives for birth control, for example, might be criticized as violating autonomy, equal protection, or informed consent, even if offering such incentives is not coercive. And focusing entirely on whether programs like those to encourage contraception are coercive may mask other important objections to such programs, such as their targeting of vulnerable groups, creating and reinforcing inequality.
