The Obama administration, along with the European Union and the Nordic countries, ganged up on poor African nations over the past two weeks at the United Nations, insisting that sexual fidelity and delaying sexual debut cannot be defensive strategies against the spread of HIV.
The African countries sent delegates to New York with high hopes that at least one of the non-binding but influential documents produced at the UN Commission on the Status of Women, among the largest annual gatherings at the United Nations, could be a vehicle to help them slow the growth of HIV on their continent. Instead, working in tandem, the United States and the European Union blocked language encouraging the reduction of the number of sexual partners.
According to witnesses who spoke with Breitbart News, in the middle of the final night of negotiations, some African delegates actually wept in frustration.
At the start of negotiations, the United States, Europe, Norway, Mexico, and other Latin American nations threatened that there would be no HIV/AIDS resolution if it contained references to abstinence and fidelity, reducing the number of sexual partners, or even what would seem noncontroversial, "delaying sexual debut." For two weeks negotiations were stalled and delayed. The US and the EU with their dozens of diplomats easily outmatched poor African countries that may have only one or two diplomats to cover the entire span of negotiations. The US and EU insisted that language like "fidelity" and "sexual delay" would stigmatize and therefore discourage those with HIV from getting tested and seeking treatment. The Africans insisted these were the only real defensive strategies against the disease, which is still at epidemic proportions in Africa.

America of 2014, run by the undocumented Moslem Tyrant
and the hated EXEMPT Congress, supports crucifixion,
beheadings, black on white attacks across the USA,
and ANY COVERUP that led to MANPADs for al Qaeda
and a rape of a US Ambassador.
Everything is upside down. Good is now bad, and bad is now good, according to the “wisdom” of the world. It has to be the end times.
and “our” argument on behalf of the as yet disease free virgins in Africa was what ???
Approaches that work 100% of the time are stubbornly rejected and if we question the agenda we're "homophobes" and conspiracy theorists.
Yes that’s what the Africans say...
But the African in my White House...
what did he say on behalf of the AYDFVIA ???
Guess WHO first promoted anal sex as a cheap method of birth control IN AFRICA.
Well said,markomalley! I would like to join you in that prayer.
The Center for Disease Control states that based on Cumulative Estimated Number of AIDS Diagnoses, Through 2010:
1) Male-to-male sexual contact: 555,032
2) Injection drug use: 277,738
3) Male-to-male sexual contact and injection
drug use: 80,902
And these are 2010 numbers for just the US — Hum, anyone sensing a theme here? So, I’m not a rocket surgeon, but seems pretty simple to me — Keep your pecker out of the pooper and chances of getting AIDS/HIV goes down.
Our national representatives have hit bottom.
As a Canuck, I wonder if my UN representative was involved in the vote and how he voted. The article doesn’t say which countries are represented on the UN Status of Women Commission. My Prime Minister is a Christian, so did the Canadian rep vote per the Bible, or not?
DENIAL = INSANITY = “sexual fidelity and delaying sexual debut cannot be defensive strategies against the spread of HIV.”
These liberal/progressives are insane!
I feel the same way. To think that we’ve buried our nobleness in our crotches is disgusting.
You can tell when the Devil is at work because no logic is applied, no thinking is needed, and everything is upside down.
This is like the KKK offering free abortions to minorities.
Do you have a source. I don’t want to google anal sex Africa.
too far back, but its documented in several books fighting population control.
Forces of evil. Africa! Stand up to these demonic thugs!
“Do you have a source. I dont want to google anal sex Africa.”
If you do, a picture of Former Illinois Democrat Congressman Mel Reynolds pops up — He was charged with having sex with minors in Zimbabwe, but as we all know, democraps care about people, especially “the children.”
These miscreants are nothing but anti-science.
What the hell is wrong with these people? If you aren’t running around dipping your pole in random rectums in third world cesspools you will likely not catch AIDS. Telling someone “you know, you live in Haiti and it is probably not a good idea to run around having unprotected sex with random people,” is not oppression. Next the UN will be complaining that someone is going to tell junkies it is a bad idea to use street drugs and share filthy needles with random people.
Good call. Sexual fidelity alone cannot prevent HIV. It takes sexual fidelity (which is MUCH easier and more reliable when one delays sexual debut), plus avoid IV drugs, plus reliable screening for blood transfusions and organ donations. Sexual fidelity is only about 90% of what is needed to prevent HIV.
