Faithful Condom User Fallout

Nuclear Reaction to HLI Ad in Africa!

My Dear Friends,

I want to tell you about a most amazing project that HLI has initiated ... and then I need your immediate help so HLI can spread this truly life-saving program all over Africa!

First, let me tell you about the project. Last week we got the attention of those who promote "King Condom" in Tanzania (East Africa) ... big time! We did so when our HLI affiliate erected three billboards that featured a skeleton on a bright red background as the attention-grabber (image courtesy of American Life League) and used this title - written in Swahili so that the local population could read it - to drive home the truth about condom failure: "Faithful Condom User" [click here to see a picture of the billboard].

One large billboard was placed near a main road in the capital city of Dar es Salaam while two smaller versions were put up elsewhere in the city.

While we presumed that this message and graphic would be controversial, we didn't expect the international condom lobby to go utterly ballistic over it!

On Tuesday, the main newspaper in Tanzania, The Citizen, ran a story on our billboards. The article described people at "high-profile" anti-life organizations like United Nations Program on HIV/AIDS, Family Health International, Population Services International and others as "up in arms" ... and government officials as "jolted." It said that the chairperson of the Tanzania Commission for AIDS was "furious" at HLI's billboards and told of meetings that were held with members of the Prime Minister's office to discuss an "urgent intervention" to suppress and censor our message!

When the power structure of an entire country is rallied against us, that's a sure sign that we're right!

Our billboards are telling the people the TRUTH about condoms ... and the heralds of the culture of death can't stand it!

Now that you see the impact our billboards are having, I need you to send HLI the largest gift you can so we can spread this program to every one of the 55 nations on the continent of Africa!
