World AIDS Day

Bush exports his own hard-core religious beliefs and sex, abstinence, and birth control to the Third World as US policy. But the abortion wars have no relevance in these countries; in fact, the effects of these policies are just accelerating the AIDS epidemic. Aren't religious folks supposed to contemplate and try and alleviate suffering?

"...USAID is the single largest donor of condoms in the developing world, providing $75-million worth annually, or about a third of all donations. Yet, according to the PAI report, 16 poor countries in Africa, Asia and the Middle East have been cut off from USAID condom shipments because their family planning groups are associated with the International Planned Parenthood Federation, which refuses to sign the antiabortion pledge."
