Birth control education

I read with interest Kathleen Parker’s tribute to Laura Bush (BDN, Nov. 5).

I agree that the first lady has quietly and graciously acted on behalf of women and children all over the world to bring enlightenment. Her statement, “If women are educated, everything across the board improves for their families,” is true.

However, it seems that birth control education is lacking within the scope of her concerns. I realize her husband is strongly against abortion, but birth control is separate and something women in many places really need. They do not want to have too many children and need help.

So many problems across the globe are caused as a result of too many people.
