Respect Life and the Truth on Respect Life Sunday
Date:10/3/2009

WASHINGTON, Oct. 3 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Jon O'Brien, president of Catholics for Choice, issued the following statement on Respect Life Sunday:

"This Sunday, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops holds its annual Respect Life Sunday. On this occasion, we would like to encourage the US bishops to also respect the truth.

On HIV prevention alone, the Centers for Disease Control marks condom use as a cornerstone of prevention, noting that condom use--while not 100 percent effective--can go a long way to prevent the transmission of STIs.

While we believe that people who choose these options should be able to do so freely and that they can work for some, we also recognize that abstinence and NFP don't suit everybody. On top of that, NFP does not have nearly as good of a track record as the brochure claims. According to a study by the Guttmacher Institute, even those who use NFP perfectly experience a nine percent failure rate, 8.7 percent mor
