The Iranian regime has halted free birth control for women as part of moves to double the regime's 75 million population.

Women are also being urged to give up work and stay at home under Ali Khamenei's 14-point plan to encourage families to have more children.

Khamenei has also introduced a state-run education program on 'the origins of the family and raising children'.

The Supreme Leader has also warned women about the 'confrontation with the undesirable aspects of the Western lifestyle'.

The new policy - which risks increasing the number of teenage pregnancies within Iran - comes after almost two decades of the regime trying to reduce the number of children to around 3.5 per family.
