    Default No Condoms in Prisons



    KINGSTON, Jamaica (Reuters) - Jamaica has decided not to distribute condoms in prisons, where violence has broken out in the past over mere suggestions that men have sex with men in the facilities, an official said Thursday.



    The Jamaican government had been divided over the issue of handing out condoms to prisoners.



    The Health Ministry believed condoms would stem the spread of

    AIDS in penal institutions, but the National Security Ministry, which has responsibility for prisons, disagreed, arguing it would encourage sexual activity.



    Both ministries met late Wednesday to settle the matter and an agreement was reached not to distribute condoms, said an official of the National Security Ministry, who asked not be identified.



    The ministries said they would issue a statement later.



    Giving out condoms in prisons was first suggested by the former head of prisons, John Prescod, in 1997.



    But his suggestion triggered a battle between prisoners accused of being homosexual and others who said they were heterosexuals. Five inmates died and 27 were injured in two of the island's six adult penal institutions.



    Last week Health Minister Horace Dalley called for condoms to be distributed in prisons to stem the spread of AIDS.

    Something like this was similair in the UK.

    Except all mens prisons were debating whether or not to give free condoms/protection for when inmates do have sex. I mean, I agree and disagree in a way.

    Agree- Much safer; you never know who has whatdiseases, especially in a prison.

    Disagree- It'd be like saying: ''Come to jail, and we'll give you free condoms to have as much sex as you want!''

    I really can't decide in which to choose in favour of.

    This reminds me of when the Pope was against the distribution of condoms. Look where that led us.





    This is ridiculous. Sex will always happen in prison, like it or not. The best that can be done is to encourage safe sex by the distribution of condoms. Oh, and I hardly think people will want to go to prison just to get as much fudge-packing as possible. If that's what they really want, tell them to move to San Francisco...



    God-damn political correctness bull. They need to stop thinking of what is ideal and start dealing with what is REAL...
