GENERAL
Labeling condoms in this way could deter people from using them who need them the most! Condoms are the most effective way to prevent pregnancy and STDs, and changing the labeling may result in less use. Abstinence education is NOT effective in preventing pregnancy; condom use needs to be encouraged by any means possible.
