Since the positive trend in Uganda came to light, 4 groups of Western scientists have studies the results. Three of those studies found that the abstinence campaign was working. The fourth study found that actually abstinence wasn't working; condoms were the magic ingredient.

Betcha can't guess which one of those 4 studies waswritten up in the New York Times.

    I have not read the NY Slimes in 12 years and miss absolutely nothing. It is anti-Catholic, pro abortion, pro-euthanasia, anti God and screamingly Liberal. Life is nicer not reading a propaganda sheet. I urge all others to try it; you will like it!
