So John Boehner was one of 12 children and had to work hard.
Maybe a more sensitive, considerate father and husband would have limited the number of children he sired and couldn't help.
Even the Pope has now said there is a use for contraceptives (condoms to prevent spread of AIDS.)
Usually, parents can help with needs for education and financial aid for their children when there are not so many.
Of course, an exception was Joseph Kennedy, who gave each of his children a million dollars. Most of us are not so fortunate.
Why can't we provide free contraceptives? And what is wrong with teaching sex education to fourth-graders?
Education, education, education: It is a must.
