If government aide is stopped, there will be private charities that will try to intervene just like there is now until it gets to the point that it's too dangerous. I don't know where that line is as everybody's level of danger is different, so let's leave this path alone.

Since the aide agreements (or whatever the proper term is) are currently in place, why do you think they would be inclined to change the agreements? They are getting the best end of these deals - they get stuff and don't really have to do/provide anything in return. At this point, it is best to cut the aide off full stop and negotiate new aide agreements from scratch with birth control or sterilization as a stipulation.

Having said all that, I don't trust those governments to administer the birth control; nor do I trust our governments to administer it.

That is a fair point. Starting from scratch does make a pretty good stick-and-carrot type negotiation. I wouldn't allow their governments to administer it though. They're to corrupt and incompetent to handle such a task. I think our government would need to be pushed into the idea, but would implement it well enough.
