Vatikaanin paavillisen perheneuvoston presidentti, kardinaali Alfonso
Lopez Trujillo sanoi BBC:n haastattelussa:
The Aids virus is roughly 450 times smaller than the
The spermatozoon can easily pass through the 'net' that is
formed by the condom.
These margins of uncertainty should represent an obligation on
the part of the health ministries and all these campaigns to
act in the same way as they do with regard to cigarettes,
which they state to be a danger.

BRADSHAW: The patient with AIDS was Mathias, a choirmaster and
helper of the church clinic. Inside he suggested we start with
MATHIAS OTIENDO Choirmaster: So we're going to pray a bit?..
BRADSHAW: Ill for six years and barely able to afford the
medicines which keep him alive, Mathias hopes that his wife,
Emadine, has so far managed to escape infection. I first asked
Mathias whether his drugs were helping.
MATHIAS: Yes, so they're working, it is responding in me.
MATHIAS: It is expensive but I'm just trying as much as I can.
BRADSHAW: Sister, what's your advice to Mathias and his wife?
SISTER AKOTH: My advice to him is only that they may keep
praying because now there is nothing they can do about it. He
is already sick. If the wife has accepted the situation then
they may live.. continue to love each other, be faithful to
one another until the day? their last day on earth.
BRADSHAW: Tell me how, Mathias, how this has affected your
marriage. It must be difficult for you and your wife.
MATHIAS: It's difficult but we have to control now because if
you don't control we know the risk. I know that we have so
many things, we have things like condom and me I can't use
BRADSHAW: You can't use condoms?
BRADSHAW: Tell me why not.
MATHIAS: The church tells us that it's not 100% safe that we
are? that there's some holes in it.
BRADSHAW: Holes in the condoms.
MATHIAS: ... in the condoms.
BRADSHAW: Sister, what are we to make of Mathias' story?
SISTER AKOTH: They aren't 100% useful because they can
rupture, they're just made of rubber, they can rupture, and as
you see, there is some pores in the condom that the virus can
pass through. That is very true. So I seriously side with him
that the option he has taken not to be with the wife, he will
have to control himself is very good.
