Boston College Wants to Discipline Students for Handing out Condoms

Administrators at Jesuit-run Boston College have sent out warnings of possible disciplinary action to students who have been passing out free condoms on campus.

Students have established so called “safe sites” on campus for distributing the prophylactic devices for males and females.  As readers know,  condoms and the premarital free for all is against Catholic teaching.  While the  administrators are not spying in individual dorm rooms for condoms and sex, they object to the public distribution at their institution.

One might expect that students who desired to attend a Catholic institution might have some respect for the religious sensibilities and teachings, even if they do not fully concur.  But we have learned, from Sandra (the riveted) Fluke that some students attend these institutions for the purpose of tearing them down.   The condom distribution is said to have been occurring since 2009.  Perhaps the practice has become extremely overt, or perhaps an administrator finally mustered the courage to address the issue.

A Washington DC group,  “Advocates for Youth, is donating $400 each semester for condom distribution at Boston College according to the Boston Globe.

It appears that the local ACLU is ready to jump into the fray.  Perhaps this would not be so bad.  If the Jesuits lose this argument in the legal arena, it might be a step towards smaller government.

If the ACLU can establish that penalties against  handing out condoms in public at a religious educational institution, are unconstitutional  then we can establish that laws against smoking in public are likewise unconstitutional.  Remember…. condoms don’t stop the spread of HPV (genital warts), etc.  In fact, new STI cases VASTLY outpace  than new jobs AND  new graduates in the United States, with an estimated 19.7 million new infections in 2008, says the CDC. This costs the nation $16 billion in direct health care costs per year.   On these bases ‘Nanny’ Bloomberg and Michelle Obama would have to shut down their obsessive-compulsive meddling.

Boston College need not “discipline” the students for their undiplomatic and discourteous treatment of their educational institution and its traditions.   Instead, the students  could be “praised” online with video and verse, and in letters of recommendation, for their very public “concern” for  the sexual health and availability of their fellow students.  Particular attention could be paid to the students who pass out condoms in front of the church.  That information would remain as searchable as the facebooks, resume, and other activities of the students, and help to  track them into appropriate career paths.  😉

“BUGS ‘R’ US”, says the CDC.


Porn Addicts Might Be Forced to Recycle, Due to Syphilis Outbreak

Porn industry announces moratorium after syphilis-case reports –

An LA group which represents the  porn film  industry  is suspending operations while testing for syphilis among its one thousand performers  is underway.

An 18% increase in syphilis in the state of California between 2010 and 2011,  has gotten  their health department officials all excited.

There’s debate concerning Measure B in Los Angeles, which would allow spot inspections of porn producers, and mandates that condoms be deployed in x rated film production.

The Road We Know

The Road We Know.

College kids in Botswana toured the country advocating behavioral change, abstinence/exclusivity, to prevent HIV in a country which has the world’s second highest prevalence.

This “radical” strategy and mission  was born from the realization that the condoms/awareness/testing programs were not effective in this country where one fourth of the population has HIV.

Uganda and Kenya have seen positive results from encouraging abstinence.

Dr. Edward Green, of the Harvard AIDS Prevention Research Project  appears in this film….as well as here, Down on the Pharm.

Nations of Africa are making significant  cultural and behavioral changes to fight HIV.  One wonders how long (and how many more deaths)  it will take before the Western progressives  catch up with what we already knew was the best way to prevent AIDs.

Of Course the Media is Going to Distort This

Pope says condoms acceptable ‘in certain cases’ – Yahoo! News.

Pope Benedict made a statement about what exists in reality….. speaking about the use of a condom to reduce the instances of a male prostitute killing  other people with HIV, while still acknowledging the fact that condoms are no solution to that global problem.

Most of the other headlines regarding this statement are much more distorting than the Yahoo news.

Washington DC, Beefing Up the Failed AIDS Prevention Program

D.C. to begin using more-expensive Trojan condoms in HIV prevention program. ………. because people were whining that the Durex brand wasn’t good enough.   Some of these  delusional denizens of DC, screaming for better freebies,  also complained about the size.  Pharmer suggests that they instead discontinue the hallucinogens.

Recall that the Harvard AIDS prevention project  produced data which shows  that the condom distribution  programs do not prevent or reduce transmission of the virus at the population level, so Washington DC,  the HIV  capital of the United States, where  3 percent of residents have the virus, is likely to remain as such.

What to Do when Plan B is Seen as Less Effective than Withdrawal?

Well, rehabilitate the withdrawal method of course! So check out this ABC article which cites studies to “show” that the withdrawal method is on par with condom use for efficacy in preventing pregnancy.

Obviously it won’t help with other common problems…….

So with withdrawal rehabilitated to acceptability as a contraceptive method, then Plan B might still be thought of as “effective”.

Or maybe getting both of these into common usage will sell a lot more abortions.
