Seems that there’s a new federally required warning on condom wrappers.
From the AP:
Justin Kleinman hadn’t noticed the condom packet wording until he squinted to read it recently.
“This is completely pointless,” the 24-year-old Chicagoan said of the warning telling him that, while condoms can help prevent the spread of some sexually transmitted diseases, there are no guarantees.
I’m with this guy:
But scientists who study HPV worry that abstinence groups are dismissing important information to promote their own values.
“I want to be polite. But it appalls me when I see scientific and medical studies being manipulated for a different agenda,” said Tom Broker. He’s a professor of biochemistry and molecular genetics at the University of Alabama at Birmingham and president of the International Papillomavirus Society, a coalition of experts who study HPV.
