“HIV/AIDS has cleared families, and all we have left are graves of parents and orphaned children fending for themselves. With no breadwinners, the children are turning to prostitution due to poverty. In the process, they also die of HIV/AIDS. The church has to look at the issue differently. Even priests and nuns are dying of HIV/AIDS.” [23]

Given the statements from well respected authorities such as the CDC, NIH and WHO, one can see that the Vatican’s consistent fight against the use of condoms to prevent the spread of HIV (from the earliest days of the pandemic) has almost certainly enabled the disease to spread, and in doing so led to untold and unnecessary suffering and death.
