Sure, condoms won't completely stop the spread of AIDS, nor will condoms eliminate unwanted pregancies, but proper use reduces the numbers of the suffering: AIDS infected human beings and those born who are unwanted and destined to live a life in poverty. Sex education would ideally explain to those who use condoms that they are not fool proof, yet their chances of contracting AIDS or conceiving a child, or both are greatly reduced. They could add abstinence education as part of the program and explain that abstinence is the only fool proof way to avoid these consequences. In the meantime distribution of condoms to those who insist on participating in that dreaded activity- sexual relations, should be encouraged.
I mean, how cruel is it when an innocent person, perhaps a faithful wife contracts AIDS or a sexually transmitted disease because her mate didn't have a condom in his pocket or information about sexually transmitted diseases when he was thinking with his dick rather than his brain and fucks some other woman who is infected? What does the government think- that punishing innocent people will make sex stop? How stupid.
The secret agenda of
The Guardian Reports: "There is no doubt in my mind that the condom crisis in Uganda is being driven by [US policies]," Mr Lewis said yesterday. "To impose a dogma-driven policy that is fundamentally flawed is doing damage to Africa."Oh come on. The US is punishing innocent people by imposing restrictions on foreign governments. That's not fair. That's terrorism- Do it our way or die.
The condom shortage has developed because both the Ugandan government and the US, which is the main donor for HIV/Aids prevention, have allowed supplies to dwindle, according to an American pressure group, the Centre for Health and Gender Equity (Change).
In 2003, President Bush declared he would spend $15bn on his emergency plan for Aids relief, but receiving aid under the programme has moral strings attached.
Recipient countries have to emphasise abstinence over condoms, and - under a congressional amendment - they must condemn prostitution.
To be fair and share the blame with our government, the first lady of Uganda, Janet Museveni, also promotes abstinence only education. She is also being criticized because it doesn't work.
When I was raised a Catholic, abstinence education was the sole part of sex education. Sure, we tried to remain abstinent and we were abstinent until that moment that it went out the window. And that is the moment that people should be prepared for. Your first time probably wasn't planned. It's kind of ironic that at one time Catholics were having the most abortions. We had to try to figure out what was the worse sin- having sex or using birth control! Since those who make the Catholic rules are mainly homosexual and taken care of financially by the tithes of the faithful, they don't have to worry about birth control and the economic burden of an unwanted pregnancy. But they don't mind telling the faithful that they are going to hell if they disobey. Funny that the clergy aren't afraid of hell- maybe they know something we don't know? Hmmm.
Swaziland the country with the world's highest AIDS epidemic, tried a ban on teenage sex thinking it would slow the spread of AIDS. It didn't work and it placed the burden on girls. What else is new? "Swaziland has one of the highest rates of Aids in the world. In a population of 1.1 million people, nearly one in three girls aged 15-19 are HIV positive and many became pregnant despite wearing the tassels." Girls wore tassels to signify their virginity. Men would lose a cow if they violated the tassel. That practice has been stopped. no way! By the way, 66% of the population live on less than $1/day. See article
Swaziland's king, a polygamist, enjoys a ritual of bare breasted young virgins who dance erotically for him- then he picks another wife from the girls. Oy vay, does this country need some help or what? What really galls me is that women are stuck paying the price for all the horny men in the world. We should pass out dildos to young women of the world so they can just say no to men who don't believe in birth control.
