Birth control will help Somalia

Few people who witness the shocking pictures from Somalia, probably feel as I do about the helplessness of solving the inhumanity going on in that country.

The answer is not missionaries, nor free food, nor water, nor medicine - vital though these are. Birth control, by contraception and/or abortion, may not solve the problem, but it will reduce the suffering of millions.

To those who would disagree, I would like to hear their answer to this humanitarian problem.
