I think we need to change the phrase "breed like rabbits" to "breed like humans," as no other species on this planet even comes close to the human reproduction rate.

This past September, as I joined fellow leaders and global citizens at the UN, I was confronted by a brave fellow Kenyan. He challenged his leaders to make HIV treatment available to all who need it and to address the stigma too many people living with the disease face every day of their lives.
As you meander through the hills of the Kanungu District, amid the dusty roads dotted with potholes, you can't believe that someone would have thought to lift up the health and social well-being of this remote community.
