taz, 13 February 2023

Op-ed by AAN’s Thomas Ruttig about reports by Afghan exile media that the Taleban have banned women to purchase contraceptives (in German), coming to the conclusion that there is no sign on an official ban. He also quotes Taleban sources not opposing contraceptives in general and gives background on the (growing) acceptance and use of contraceptives over the past decades, despite influential parts of the religious community opposing it.
