CAMEROON, Aug 25 (LSN) – A recent study which found that the spermicide nonoxynol-9 fails to provide “protection” against sexually transmitted diseases, including AIDS, used as subjects for the experiment poor African women. American Life League exposed the very disturbing nature of this study. Data recorded in the New England Journal of Medicine last week indicates that the researchers exploited 1,292 women working as prostitutes in Cameroon for their experiment.  The study had one group of “female sex workers” use the spermicide while “on the job” and a control group who did not use the product. The researchers concluded that “the use of nonoxynol-9 did not reduce the rate of new HIV, gonorrhea or chlamydia infection in this group of sex workers.” American Life League noted that the New England Medical Journal’s web page which featured the study did “not explain why it was necessary to use poor African women or why it was necessary to condone immoral behavior in order to conduct research on a product that could be used to encourage promiscuity.”  You will find the study at:
