Skip to comments.Clinton: Circumcision - The Answer To AIDS
Posted on 08/16/2006 5:49:00 PM PDT by ButThreeLeftsDo
Former US President Bill Clinton called for the world to prepare to tackle the cultural taboos surrounding circumcision Tuesday if, as many expect, trials show that it protects men and the women they sleep with from AIDS.
In a speech to the International Aids conference in Toronto, Canada, Clinton said:
"Should this be shown to be effective, we will have another means to prevent the spread of the disease and to save lives, and we will have a big job to do. It is important that as we leave here we all be prepared for a green light that could have a staggering impact on the male population but that will be frankly a lot of trouble to get done."
Clinton also leaped to the defense of the Bush administration's AIDS efforts on Tuesday, saying the United States is spending more to fight HIV than any other government.
Clinton joined Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates in praising President George W. Bush's President's Emergency Program for AIDS Relief, saying it has done more good than harm.
Such support for the conservative Bush government was unexpected at the 16th International Conference on AIDS, a meeting held every two years where activists join researchers, funding agencies and aid groups to discuss the pandemic and, usually, denounce most governments for doing too little.
Clinton, whose foundation negotiates cheaper prices for drugs and HIV tests in developing nations, said PEPFAR has done a lot of good, despite a requirement that 33 percent of prevention funding be spent on abstinence-only programs.

Ah, we hear from the "bent" one : )
No, the answer to AIDS is keeping it in your pants.
Another tip from Bubba...
No doubt that his wife is circumsised..........
Clintons a real dick
I'm surprised that Clinton did not take the hint from the advice given by his former surgeon general and advocate masturbation as the best approach to preventing AIDS...
I think it depends on how deeply you cut.
But what a horrible thing to do to a women, especially one he supposedly liked well enough to have sex with. What an evil, scumbag of a president. I'm amazed at how readily people dismiss that sadistic kind of perversion.
Of course the word 'abstinence' is not is Billy's book. Frankly, Billy has 'examined' more vaginas that 10 gynecologists put together -- and is a real expert in that viewpoint. Maybe Billy got the words 'castration' and 'circumcision' confused here.... :-)
Keeping it out of somebody's butt would work well.
I am no Doctor , but I did stay at a Holiday Inn once, i guess that makes me as smart as Bubba.
I dont see why circumcision would help prevent aids unles the problem is that after anal sex the poop stays in under the foreskin. Maybe a good wash job after packing the fudge would work as well.
Sounds like he's on the AMA payroll?
"Did you hear the one about the Rabbi that did circumcisions for free?????"
Well, krinton is the poster boy for STD's after all. Monica said their fevered trysts were sometimes quenched by his outbreaks. What a legacy. He held the most powerful office in the world and his personal substance is nothing more than post-coital drip.
My cousin, who, despite being my age, is still a cutie, is a convention planner. Two weeks ago she did a convention with featured speakers Tony Blair, Algore, and Der Schlickmeister.
When she was showing Clinton around, he tried to put the moves on her, and insisted she have a picture taken with him. She tried to get out of it, "Oh, you've got a really busy schedule, etc." but he wouldn't give up. After they got a pic, he saw four younger babes standing nearby, and called all THEM over for pics.
This guy never gives up.
Well, he does have a point to a certain extent. If you get the snip, you're probably not going to feel like having sex for a while, so it's at least good for a temporary fix.
