22. Because she refused to
From the article:

She explained that she had taken P to a family planning clinic but her daughter had refused a contraceptive injection at the last minute. "She fell pregnant with her second child quite quickly after her first, and if it (sterilisation) isn't done, the thing that worries me is that she'll fall pregnant again with her third."

Mrs P said that her second choice would be a contraceptive implant for her daughter.

Now, it isn't clear whether she refused because she understands about contraception (I'd say that since she is generally held incapable of bringing up children herself, and cannot understand future children will be taken permanently away from her,she probably doesn't), or because she doesn't like injections.
