Rep. Trail,
  Has anyone suggested teaching people living in third world countries that most of their starvation and malnutrition problems would go away if they would not be popping out 8 babies a piece?
  What the world needs is more birth control and education not to have more children they cannot afford to raise.
  Best Regards,
