WE SUPPORT THE EFFORTS BY THE GOVERNMENT PROVIDE CONDOMS FOR OUR SCHOOL CHILDREN!

Atheists In Kenya (AIK) would like to state categorically that we fully support the efforts by the Kenya Government to providing condoms to adolescents in our schools. We are asking communities in Kenya, our educators, parents and doctors to step up in making this form of contraception more available to teens.

We are opposed to the Catholic position that abstinence is the only way of preventing sexually transmitted diseases, including HIV Aids. This position is indeed repugnant to reason.

Although abstinence of sexual activity is the most effective method for prevention of pregnancy and STIs (sexually transmitted infections), young people should be prepared for the time when they will become sexually active. When used consistently and correctly, male latex condoms reduce the risk of pregnancy and many STIs, including HIV.

Further to these positive efforts, we encourage Kenyan parents to be talking to their teens about sex, we would like colleagues at work places to provide condoms in their offices and support increasing access of condoms to the community and we also recommend providing condoms in schools, in addition to comprehensive sexual education.

Research has shown that that providing condoms to teens, especially in high schools, encourages them to use condoms more often and more consistently without encouraging them to have sex more often, or with more partners.

President, AIK

    God is more of a whore and i want to believe he runs the play boy mansion so why not let our dear children enjoy sex that was created to pleasure their bodies.
