Hiv Funding - One Little Bit Less Nonsense In The Us

1 post in this topic

Since 2003 the US has required international groups, charities and government agencies to which it gave money to fight HIV/AIDS to condemn prostitution and trafficking (subjects which it conflated).    

 

This policy ---- see http://www.pepfarwatch.org/the_issues/anti_prostitution_pledge/ was initiated by Bush and supported, latterly, by Obama 

 

The requirement has now been struck down 6-2 by the Supreme Court as unconstitutional, specifically as interfering with free speech
