French Catholic church backs condom use:
This article was originally published in Clinica
A report published by the French Catholic bishops conference acknowledges that the condom is necessary in the battle against AIDS. In a move away from the Vatican's stance, this is the first time the French Catholic church has recognised the importance of condoms. In a sex education guide published in January, the Vatican reiterated the Pope's hard line on AIDS, encouraging parents to reject the idea of "safe sex" while promoting abstinence outside marriage. Church opposition has hindered health officials' efforts to launch AIDS prevention campaigns worldwide, says a Reuters report.
