Powell Urges Condom Use
Can you believe this argument is still going on?
There’s an episode of the Sitcom Designing Women that dealt with this exact issue. A young man came to them to plan his funeral because he was dying of AIDS, while the schoolboard was arguing the merits of placing condoms in the nurses office.
And at the end of the episode, in a moment that they’d obviously been leading up to, Annie Potts says something to the effect: “All moral arguments aside, no matter what decisions our children make, they shouldn’t be forced to die for them.”
