Mutual responsibility for family planning

Regarding the article "Quayle Attempts to Win Hearts of Conservatives," June 17: I completely agree on all the points the author makes. However, there is one other point to be made.

If one believes that the male and female should share equal responsibility for birth control, then how could one possibly agree with Vice President Quayle? My interpretation of what he has said is that the character of Murphy Brown acted irresponsibly, thereby setting a bad example for women. Once again the blame is placed solely on the woman.

Maybe the vice president should offer a feasible solution instead of blaming an enormous portion of our population for problems stemming from economic and social instability. Diana Burkhart, Auburn, Wash.
