Vatican's Council Reviews Condom Usage
Pope Benedict XVI requested the Vatican's council to study and report on the subject of using condoms top tackle AIDS. Cardinal Javier Lozano Barragan, a senior Roman Catholic official said that the Vatican will soon publish a report based on this issue. But still it says that it is better to refrain from sex which is one the efficient way to tackle HIV/Aids. Cardinal Carlo Maria Martini, who was previously the Archbishop of Milan, acknowledged the use of condoms if one partner suffered from AIDS.

If usage of condoms were introduced then it would be a major revision of Vatican policy. Condoms have always been one of the most controversial topics among Catholics. But Cardinal Barragan was very positive and hopes that the Vatican will issue a document about the use of condoms by persons who have AIDS. He said the Vatican is scrutinizing the document, in collaboration with the scientists and theologians.
