Philippines: bishops decry government's condom-oriented approach to AIDS
Catholic World News - February 15, 2010
The Catholic bishops of the Philippines have denounced a new effort by that country's government to combat the spread of AIDS by distributing free condoms. The bishops argue that the condom-oriented approach sends a dangerous message, encouraging promiscuity, when only sexual restraint will be effective in halting the spread of the disease.
