Bob Geldof - Liberal with Integrity
#4
I'm not going to say he's wrong, he may know something I don't. But there is some evidence that changing people's sense of morality is not the most cost-effective way to stop AIDS transmission. In the US, abstinance-only education has been shown to be not as effective in preventing teenage pregnancies as education that teaches people how to use condoms. In Thailand, they distubed condoms to sex workers, and managed to reduce transmission by 90% - among sex workers, who had nothing to do with this "no sex" message. Certainly many different approaches have merit, but I'm still not convinced that this approach doesn't get disproportionate support for political reasons.
