Transcript FEBRUARY 13, 1987/MONTROSE VOICE 7 Condom Ads Are Only a First Step Time Has Come for Television Blitz on AIDS Commentary by Neil Schram Pacific News Service Whether TV networks should allow advertisements about condoms is not the issue. The real problem is that such ads don't go nearly far enough in realizing our most powerful medium's ability to educate. AIDS-related television advertising should abound, its cost borne by the government, corporations, and the networks themselves. Its content should be detailed with advice about condoms, but should not be left up to advertising agencies for condom manufacturers alone. Unlike present condom ads, a new batch of public service announcements (PSAs) must explicitly and repeatedly remind people that the AIDS virus is spread by intercourse (anal or vaginal) and that condoms significantly reduce that risk. Because of different populations that must be reached, the term "rubber" is likely to be needed as well as the word condom. Sharing injectable drug needles or equipment is the other major way the virus is spread and this must be broadcast as well. Given the moral concerns which presently paralyze the networks, it would be better to include advice on abstaining from sex as well as about condoms if that is what is required to get the messages on the air. So far, the major networks and almost all local stations, in an effort to avoid controversy, have indicated that information about condoms for AIDS pre- AIDS-related television advertising should abound, its cost borne by the government, corporations, and the networks themselves. A Cupid Special for the One You Love includes a Cupid Valentine Arrangement with Seasonal Flowers and Valentine Decorations only $25 including tax and delivery inside the Loop 1811 Indiana at Dunlavy 523-3791 Major Credit Cards Accepted vention is being provided by debate on news programs. Unfortunately, that does not reach most of the people who need to be reached. One station in Minneapolis is allowing advertisements for condoms after 11:30 p.m. Those ads certainly will not be seen by most people who need to be reached. Instead, PSAs about AIDS dealing with condoms must run on popular TV shows like Cosby and Family Ties. And they must be repeated frequently. In Great Britain, information about AIDS was mailed to all households in the country by the government. Governments of other European countries have funded television announcements about AIDS and sex. That must happen here, because AIDS is out of control. Some two to four million Americans are expected to become newly infected with the AIDS virus in the next four to five years. For now, the rare local TV station that permits ads for condoms represents only a token gesture in this epidemic. It should be seen only as an indication that condoms can be mentioned, not as a sign that significant education is occurring. We need a television blitz on AIDS. And we must launch it now. PNS commentator Neil Schram, a physician, heads the Los Angeles County AIDS Task Force. Sfey fud eacfi offer ... So wh\t else did tdey need? A Divorce!» Pickles Polansky Free Again!
