AIDS won't go away as long as U.S. gov't has say

A pro-family leader is taking issue with President Barack Obama's recent decision to direct another 100 million taxpayer dollars to AIDS research. She says this is nothing more than the government's promotion of homosexuality.
President Obama made the announcement at a recent White House event attended by health leaders and philanthropists seeking ways to develop more funding to combat AIDS in low-income nations.

Gramley, Diane (AFA of Pennsylvania)Diane Gramley, president of the America Family Association of Pennsylvania, does not approve of the decision.

"It's ridiculous that our tax dollars are ... in essence being used to promote the lifestyle of creating the HIV/AIDS crises in this country," she laments. "And $100 million is a drop in the bucket when the federal government's talking, but again, it's our tax dollars that are being used."

According to the Fair Allocations in Research Foundation, the National Institutes of Health allocated $3.1 billion for AIDS bio-medical research in 2013.

Gramley maintains that the "shared responsibility" advocated in this year's World AIDS Day theme is comical, as the federal government promotes the very lifestyle that increases the number of AIDS cases.

"The government is not doing its part in stopping this epidemic simply because they are promoting the lifestyle," the pro-family group president reasons. "And until they stop promoting this lifestyle, there will not be an AIDS-free generation."

In 2010, the latest year complete statistics are available, 63 percent of all new infections recorded by the Centers for Disease Control were men who have sex with men.
