Apparently the Worlds AIDS Conference is in an uproar. It seems that the typical UN crowd strenuously objects to suggestions that abstinence education is the best way to curb the AIDS crisis in Africa. Of course UNICEF and such is all to ready hand out condoms and abort infants that might result.
Turns out that one country that is unique among its peers in successfully lowering its AIDS rate. In so doing Uganda stands in stark contrast to the rest of Africa. What have they done differently? They have promoted an abstinence-first policy towards sexuality. The government sponsored a ubiquitous publicity campaign where, with straight talk and little ambiguity they promote abstinence and “partner reduction.” The results are apparently staggering.
So at the big world AIDS conference, Uganda’s president comes out swinging, urging everyone else to adopt the same kind of measures. Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni challenged the politically correct policies promoted by the UN (and Democrats in Congress), saying: “I look at condoms as an improvisation, not a solution.” The article linked above (click on the title of the post) also tells the story of a Ugandan boy who gave up sex before marriage because he got the message.
But that message is just not PC anymore. Planned Parenthood and their UN and Democratic cronies will have none of that. Apparently sexual “freedom” is worth more than health and life. Doesn’t sound like freedom to me. It’s hard to understand why people just don’t get it. I suppose their eyes have been blinded and their hearts hardened (see Romans 1).
Here’s a good article on Uganda’s success.
