    Well, they do call themselves Promess (Pro-Mess) so I guess something like this can be expected. How very sad that the promoters of sexual misbehavior are actually responsible for interfering with with REAL medical aid. But then, their main thrust is to reduce population, especially among "undesirables" so I guess a pharmaceutical storage facility too full of condoms to store life saving medicine actually fits into that agenda quite nicely.
