Quoting Quiverfull: Combatting STDs Creates More STDs?

quotingquiverfullby Zsuzsanna Anderson wife of Steven L. Anderson pastor of Faithful Word Baptist Church and blogger at Are They All Yours?

Editor’s note: This is from a posting Zsuzanna made where she ranted about the evils of women using the IVF method of having children.  There’s a lot to unpack in the posting, but this particular bit of racist assumptions of hers jumped out quickly as awful and so incredibly judgmental. How can providing education about STDs and responsible tools to avoid STDs, like condoms, be wrong in a place where you stand an incredibly high risk of infection be wrong?

“Infections” is a nice way to say that these women have been rendered infertile by the STDs that run rampant in Africa, diseases that would almost certainly be passed on to the babies created through IVF. Sure, I feel bad that people live in a country where they were probably infected by their own parents, but do we need to continue that cycle of disease through sponsored IVF procedures? Besides, maybe instead of handing out condoms like candy, these people should be taught not to live like animals and sleep with everyone and everything that moves. Statistics have proven over and over that distributing condoms RAISES the incidence of STDs. This is due to the fact that people will fornicate more because they feel safe, when condoms are only effective about 60% of the time because of product failure or incorrect use. In America, New York City has the most aggressive program to combat STDs, and they hand out more condoms than any other city. Yet their per-capita rate of STDs is the highest in the country.
