Bushies flunk the alphabet
From the International Aids Conference
A major debate is scheduled at the conference on the merits of the Bush-backed ABC strategy, which stands for “Abstinence, Being Faithful, Condom Use” Ã¢â‚¬” in that order. Critics say promoting condoms should come first.
Carol Bellamy, the executive director of UNICEF said the policy ignores reality.
“ABC is insufficient when it comes to women in general. A: Rape doesn’t respect abstinence; B: their partners are supposed to be but that is increasingly not occurring; and C: condoms are generally in the control of men. So when it comes to women and AIDS, let’s understand the insufficiency of A, B and C,” she said.
