Kielburgers call condom use “basic medicine”

A few days ago, we wrote about one of Free the Children’s (FTC) partners called Partners in Health (PIH) which is very active in distributing contraception. PIH was co-founded by Paul Farmer. Back in 2008, Craig and Marc Kielburger wrote a lofty piece that almost canonized Farmer. One paragraph jumps out:

Farmer trained community members in basic medicine. It was mainly preventative measures like hand-washing, family planning and condom use. The goal was to stop illness in its tracks through education. The community health workers were paid for their services and would go about teaching, referring and delivering medicine. (Source

Farmer has obviously done some very meritorious things. Kudos to him. But his work in distributing contraception is a great disservice to society by violating the integrity of sex as a sign of God’s love for the Church. 

I don’t know about you, but when I personally give an endorsement about somebody, I generally talk about the good stuff, the stuff I agree with. As Matt Redman sings, “Everybody praises the thing they love.” So if the Kielburgers’ article praising Mr. Farmer made mention of his distribution of contraception, isn’t it likely that they approved of that activity? Look at it the other way: if they opposed contraception on moral grounds, would they have mentioned it in this canticle of praise without providing any caveats?

More importantly, the fact that the Kielburgers include condom use as part of “basic medicine” should put the last nail in the coffin of anyone who thinks the Kielburgers don’t endorse condom usage. By using the term “basic medicine” and by putting condom use on par with hand-washing, they give condoms a connotation of being necessary, normal and healthy.

This makes you wonder what exactly goes on in FTC’s health activities. Any sentence about “medicine” or “health” on their website now needs to be interpreted in light of their twisted vocabulary and mindset.

  1. Legalized Sodomy, Abortion, No-fault divorce, Kinsey Sex Education etc.,taught to our Western societies schoolchildren, as human rights has changed the character of the Western majority including Bishops. The majority in The West have changed their loyalties. They prefer Barabbas=son of the father, and his views.

    In our democracies schoolchildren started their morning with The Lord’s Prayer led by their teachers, and The Ten Commandments were on Government,Courtroom,Schoolroom walls,and in peoples hearts. Christianity was the Western Worldview. Now evil prospers as so-called good people remain politically apathetic and indifferent electing Political Parties, and politicians with perverted morbid policies.
