In light of the tragic events of today in London, it is a little hard to feel motivated to write anything of worth. Yet, an overall high and moral purpose is to advocate those things which support life and support the wellbeing of humanity. Mankind has many fronts before him. It is overwheming at times.

Despite the opinion of the NYT editorial on this matter, the anti-prostitution pledge as a requirement for government funding may not be a violation of an organization’s freedom of speech after all.

A scientific report written by Harvard researchers revealed that faithfulness and abstinence campaigns, in that order, played the most significant role in accomplishing the largest AIDS decline in history in Uganda, a war-torn nation in eastern Africa. The 128-page report, written by Edward (Ted) C. Green, Ph.D., an anthropologist at Harvard University’s School of Public Health, and two research associates, detailed Uganda’s storyâ€”how in the 1980s the country couldn’t afford to spend millions purchasing condoms from Westerners.
Green’s report concluded that being-faithful and abstinence education played more significant roles than condom distribution.
