Description

This story explains changes in Public Health policies of the Bush administration, particularly the approach to preventing sexually transmitted diseases among young people. For 20 years the policy had been to get kids to use condoms; a policy that worked. Since the advent of the Bush administration five years ago, the policy has shifted to "No sex before marriage" and the government has spent almost $1 billion to get the message across. Part of the strategy has been to convince young people that condoms are not safe.
