I know before I write this that some reading will be offended. It is easy to judge when your life does not reflect, in anyway the life of the one you are judging. Women in Haiti do not have a voice about sex. Sexual assault is not against the law- in fact the idea of sexual assault is translucent. We are wanting to empower women, with their health, their education and their financial situation. Yes we hand out birth control. Today Jonna taught Child Development class and spoke on spacing the birth of children, for health reasons for the mom and baby and other children that there might already be. Lots of questions - and many asking for condoms! We would say "bravo"! We want them to take responsibility for their reproduction as best as they can. It was exciting! So before you jump all over me for this - consider THEIR life.
