Re: Ugandan Wisdom

The Winter, 2004 issue of the Human Life Review contains a great essay by Melinda Tankard Reist – “Condom Nations” – on the amazing success of “ABC” in Uganda. By promoting abstinence over condom use, premarital and multi-partner sex in Uganda has fallen dramatically, and thereby so has the HIV infection rate – it’s declined from 21 percent in 1991 to 6 percent now. For more on the powerful impact of ABC – which has knee-capped of the sacred liberal dogma that condoms and condoms alone can prevent AIDS and other STDs — check out this May, 2003 testimony before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee by Dr. Edward Green, Senior Research Scientist at the Harvard Center for Population and Development Studies (he’s the expert on the issue).
