No condoms please … we’re Nationalists

July 9, 2008

‘In 1999, government requested experts to draw up a national sexual health policy. Nine years later, the umpteenth attempt has been sabotaged by the health department’s resistance to one word: CONDOM’

‘Amanda Ciappara [Ministry for Health spokesperson] outlined the minister’s position that “condoms are not necessarily the answer”.’

In the meantime… the incidence of STDs continues to rise dramatically.

( story from Malta Today midweek 9/7/2008 www.maltatoday.com.mt )

When is the government going to stop playing holier-than-thou and stop this silly and ignorant charade? 9 years to draw up a policy because of ONE word! As usual the Nationalists play holier-than-thou not to scare away the ultra-conservative moralisers in their midst.

How sad… Vision 2015 indeed!
