We Are The Cure to HIV/AIDS (W.A.T.C.H.)

Every hour of everyday 2 Americans contract the HIV/AIDS virus. AIDS is a virus eating up its victims by over 40,000 people every year. As we speak, the condom industry collects over 400 million dollars a year through their global ships of condoms. However, within the 10 years when condoms began to become so successful the number of infected people in the U.S. alone went from 40,000 in 1990 to over 40 million in 2000. At the same time, almost 30% of the people are unaware of this danger. Condoms still leave a 15% chance of contracting the AIDS virus. Something must be done, by signing this petition you are having a say in the initiative of curing AIDS by informing Americans that they cannot be deceived by the common idea that condoms completely block from the contraction of AIDS. Ultimately, we see that abstinence is just about the only cure. This petition will go to the president of the United States to convince him to see the problem that is staring him the face that is also infecting his people by the tens of thousands. Other countries such as Uganda, Africa, what was once one of the most infected with the HIV/AIDS virus, has reduced their rates by two thirds simply by abstaining from having sexual affairs and staying faithful to their partner. This petition is to show the government that the promotion of abstinence is NOT a lost cause, and that we CAN cure AIDS, just W.A.T.C.H.
