    Pro-abortion pastors from different “Christian” denominations distributed condoms outside a Hobby Lobby store to protest this week’s Supreme Court decision giving it and other companies the ability to opt out of the Obamacare HHS mandate that compels them to pay for abortion-causing drugs for their employees. This comes after a NARAL board member suggested abortion activists have sex in Hobby Lobby stores as a protest. The Chicago Sun Times has more on what happened: hobbylobby27Christian clergy and activists from different faiths protested outside a Hobby Lobby on Route 59 Wednesday in protest of the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision that says...

    When it comes to safe sex, one AIDS organization believes that size matters. In what might be considered a sign of the times, a hard-to-miss, extra-large condom is visible to anyone traveling south on Interstate 95 in Fort Lauderdale between Oakland Park and Sunrise boulevards. The billboard, sponsored by the Los Angeles-based AIDS Healthcare Foundation, went up May 17. The advertising campaign is expected to wrap up in mid-July. At the bottom of the prophylactic image is a web address, useacondom.com, which directs people to the foundation's website, where information about free condoms and HIV testing are available. The group...

    FULL TITLE: Police investigate mysterious Amazon package filled with condoms sent to 8-year-old Staten Island girl Cops are trying to unwrap a mystery in Staten Island after someone sent extra strength condoms to an 8-year-old girl. Christine Angelides, 38, told the Daily News she initially believed the Amazon delivery to her daughter was an innocent mistake. But after a company rep insisted it was no error, she called the cops. “This is alarming,” said Angelides, who received the two packages of Durex condoms on Tuesday.

    VATICAN CITY — Pope Francis has praised church workers in Africa who promote chastity as a key way to prevent the spread of HIV. Francis was speaking Monday at the Vatican to bishops from Tanzania. Many non-Catholic health care workers advocate condoms as an important weapon to fight the spread of the HIV virus that causes AIDS. The Vatican opposes condom use because church teaching forbids contraception. Francis praised church health care workers in Africa who care for those with HIV/AIDS and "all who strive diligently to educate people in the area of sexual responsibility and chastity." In 2010, Pope...

    It’s the Truvada conundrum: A drug hailed as a lifesaver for many people infected by HIV is at the heart of a rancorous debate among gay men, AIDS activists and health professionals over its potential for protecting uninfected men who engage in gay sex without using condoms. Many doctors and activists see immense promise for such preventive use of Truvada, and are campaigning hard to raise awareness of it as a crucial step toward reducing new HIV infections, which now total about 50,000 a year in the U.S. Recent efforts range from think-tank forums and informational websites to a festive...

    March 20, 2014 (STOPP.org) - Planned Parenthood pushes condoms continuously. Use condoms for anal sex to prevent disease transmission, it says. The condom mantra is at the heart of all the “comprehensive sex ed” programs. Yet, Representative Bob McDermott, who is tenaciously fighting the Planned Parenthood-promoted Pono Choices sex program aimed at middle school children in Hawaii, pointed out as early as February 3 that the FDA has warned about the dangers of using condoms for anal sex and that Pono Choices fails to pass those warnings on to students. In fact, the FDA says on its website that anal...

The event organizer spilled out a bag of condoms -- as a couple whoops and hollers could be heard from the small crowd.

The group is not recognized by the university. “We go through almost 2,000 condoms every semester for students that need them. It is very much an important need here,” said Lizzie Jekanowski, who runs BCSSH. But now Boston College is threatening to punish the students if they don’t stop giving out condoms because it goes against Catholic values and traditions. “Our position is that we’re a Catholic university...

    The legal challenges over religious freedom and the birth control coverage requirement in President Barack Obama's health care overhaul appear to be moving toward the U.S. Supreme Court. Faith-affiliated charities, hospitals and universities have filed dozens of lawsuits against the mandate, which requires employers to provide insurance that covers contraception for free. However, many for-profit business owners are also suing, claiming a violation of their religious beliefs. The religious lawsuits have largely stalled, as the Department of Health and Human Services tries to develop an accommodation for faith groups. However, no such offer will be made to individual business owners....

All students — even those as young as 14 — will be eligible to score free condoms unless their parents sign a form prohibiting them from participating. The primary issue city officials hope to address with the pilot program is not teen pregnancy, but the growing prevalence of sexually transmitted disease among adolescents. Teens...

On November 6th, Los Angeles County voters passed a referendum requiring pornographers to wear condoms to cut an outbreak of disease. Critics say porn producers, who make $14 billion a year, put money over safety by insisting that sex scenes with condoms don’t sell.  The industry threatened to move its studios, 90 percent of the which are located in the San Fernando...

Penny Nance, president of Concerned Women for America, pointedly said that this is a case of a school overstepping its boundaries and “reaching into an area that is a parental responsibility.” She continued, “We know that the number one reason that kids abstain from sex is their moral values, their faith, and because of the relationship with their parents. And when the school steps in between that relationship, it’s very harmful and it makes it...

It’s quite incidental to the Equalizer-in-Chief that these acts of governmental “fairness” to balance all of life’s scales of inequity must come at someone’s expense, which tilts another scale out of balance.

    Occupy Calgary protesters entrenched in Olympic Plaza have put out a call for donations from the public, asking for medical supplies, toiletries and condoms. The group, which expanded from its city-granted camp on St. Patrick’s Island following a Saturday protest at Bankers Hall, posted the plea for supplies on Facebook as city officials kept a close watch on the latest annexation of public property. Donations from the public have been coming in for the movement, which organizers say will be used to buy supplies such as food, but a plea has also been posted on Facebook for condoms, antibiotic ointment,...
  • Fifth Graders Quizzed on Proper Condom Use

    Does your fifth grader know how to use a condom? They may soon learn if they go to school in Washington, D.C. The District of Columbia Office of the State Superintendent on Education is pushing out standardized tests for sex education. The District takes its authority to administer sex education tests to fifth, eighth, and tenth graders from the Healthy Schools Act of 2010. Here’s how it works: Children as young as 10 will be asked 50 questions. One of the questions reads: “TJ wants to remain abstinent, but also wants to know how to properly use a condom in...
  • Chinese condoms too small for South Africans

    A South African court has blocked the government from buying 11 million Chinese condoms, saying they are too small, a newspaper reported Friday. The finance ministry had awarded a contract to a firm called Siqamba Medical, which planned to buy the Phoenurse condoms from China, the Beeld newspaper said. A rival firm, Sekunjalo Investments Corporation, turned to the High Court in Pretoria after losing the bid, arguing that their condoms were 20 percent larger than the Chinese ones. Judge Sulet Potterill blocked the deal with Siqamba, ruling that the condoms were too small, made from the wrong material, and were...

    Guess that it was bound to happen. Was just a matter of time. But now I’ve come to my decision, And it’s one of the painful kind. ‘Cause now it seems that you wanted a martyr. Just a regular guy wouldn’t do. But baby I can’t hang upon no lover’s cross for you. ~ Jim CroceThis sweet, sad lyric by Jim Croce may well be the new anthem in the sexual revolution, as word comes recently from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that strains of Gonorhhea that are resistant to all antibiotics have now emerged. Get all of...

    José Andujar, 43, was busted last Friday in Times Square for selling his "Obama" condoms -- his third arrest in a year for unlicensed peddling, cops said. The arrest came despite a State Supreme Court justice ruling that his rubbers are protected by the Constitution's guarantee of free speech. The decision said that the condom wrappers should be treated like books, which do not require a vending license.

    Santa Fe New Mexican ^ | May 9, 2011 | Robert Nott
    The class of Monte del Sol Charter School students watched and listened intently as senior Emma Campbell, with the help of a visual aid, demonstrated how to use a condom. The 18-year-old is one of 10 teens trained by the local Planned Parenthood to give presentations on sexuality to their peers. "We're trying to normalize sex," said Denise Jennings, Planned Parenthood in Santa Fe health educator, who trains the students and is present when they visit the schools. "We know kids don't always go to adults to discuss sex," she said. "They will go online or to friends who may...
  • On teen sex, ‘practical’ goes awry

    Boston Globe ^ | April 20, 2011 | Frank L. McNamara Jr.
    ONCE AGAIN we return to the long-running morality play featuring condoms vs. abstinence as rival antidotes for the twin specters of STDs and teen pregnancy. The grip of the bourgeoisie is vise-like; “practical” adult opinion in and out of government regards sex among the young strictly as a health issue. In that spirit, the Provincetown school board voted last June to offer free condoms to students of all ages without their parents’ consent. (Amid an outcry, the district reconsidered somewhat.) Earlier this month, Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter launched a major condom-distribution campaign whose website offers to mail condoms to people...

    THE EMAIL was from a wigged-out mom I know well. She was appalled that the city's campaign to reduce sexually transmitted diseases allows kids as young as 11 to get free condoms via mail-order from the Public Health Department. Eleven! Go to the website www.takecontrol philly.org and see for yourself. Be warned: The site contains very straightforward info, including explicit animations illustrating the proper way to don or insert a condom. "Every girl is different," the website notes in its instructions on female-condom use. "Figure out what position works for you. You can stand with one foot on a chair,...
