Condoms Ads Target Catholics

Alex Cukan

1 December 2003

"Good Catholics Use Condoms" is the message of a new global public education effort beginning Dec. 1, on World AIDS Day.

The campaign, a new phase in the Condoms4Life campaign, kicks off in Washington with provocative ads appearing in dioramas in the most highly used Metro stations in the U.S. capital.

The campaign moves worldwide throughout 2004 with newspaper and billboard ads, Internet action alerts, and educational materials -- all geared to reach Catholics.

The ads say: "We believe in God. We believe that sex is sacred. We believe in caring for each other. We believe in using condoms."

Roman Catholic bishops worldwide say condoms are immoral and unsafe.
