About this work


Reporter Steve Bradshaw investigates evidence put forward by The Vatican claiming that condoms encourage promiscuity and do not effectively prevent the transmission of the HIV virus due to holes in the rubber. Protesters and powerful critics argue otherwise with some feeling that the Vatican is committing a crime against humanity by discrediting condoms, but the Catholic Church puts forward the view that it is better to die than to use a condom.
