British aid buying coercive population control in India

The Wall Street Journal reports on What Britain's Foreign Aid Buys in India

The UK Department for International Development confirms that our £162.2 million of our money has been spent on India's national "Reproductive and Child Health Programme" in order to reduce "disparities in access and use of essential reproductive and child health services." What this actually adds up to in practice is forcible sterilisation of both women and men.

The WSJ is naively benevolent in its assessment of British intentions and protestations of opposition to coercive population control.
