Signs into Law Politically Correct AIDS Bill
For Immediate Release.
May 29, 2003 On May
27, 2003, President George W. Bush signed into law The United States
Leadership Against HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria Act H.R. 1298.
There is no doubt that the global acquired immunodeficiency syndrome
(AIDS) epidemic presents a grave and great threat to developing nations. However, squandering the hard-earned taxpayer’s
money on bureaucracy and hypothetical solutions is no way to help protect
individuals from sexually transmitted diseases such as the human immunodeficiency
virus (HIV) that causes AIDS.
“As the deficit escalates
and more Americans continue to lose their jobs, President Bush endorses
a politically correct strategy to combat AIDS in an attempt to sway
voters from a targeted group to support his re-election bid of 2004,” said Dr. Joel P. Rutkowski, president of the American Voice
Institute of Public Policy.
Tragically, only one-third
of the AIDS prevention funds has been targeted to promote abstinence. This law treats abstinence and condom use as
being just as effective in preventing AIDS.
However, the scientific literature indicates that this is incorrect,
and they are still not 100 percent effective in protecting an individual
from exposure to the HIV virus. “Once
again the United States exports its culture of immorality, under the
guise of pro-family values through the use of federal funds, in an attempt
to provide a solution to a deadly disease that can only be stop through
monogamy and abstinence, and that is morally and ethically wrong,” said
Dr. Joel P. Rutkowski.
