I was astonished to see an ad where CANFAR (the Canadian Foundation for AIDS Research) advocates abstinence to prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS. Although this makes sense in theory, there's tons of research out there proving that preaching abstinence doesn't work. I'd understand if it were Pope Benedict endorsing this message, but this is a research foundation with corporate sponsors. Am I wrong to get a little irritated by this?
