Why is SBC denying condoms to rural America?

The campus paper at George Washington University contains this disturbing report:

Voices For Choices will hold its second annual Safer Sex Party Tuesday night in the Thurston Hall Piano Lounge from 8:30 to 10: 30 p.m.

Students will have the opportunity to talk to local clinic representatives about safer sex and sexually transmitted infections. Free condoms, food and information will be available.

I'm not one to judge, but personally, I think it's wrong for a telecommunications lobbying group like Voices for Choices to be giving condoms to college students. I know the group is upset the FCC ruled against them in their recent dispute with the Baby Bells, but I fail to see how a "Safer Sex Party" is going to undo the government's decision.

Then again, this article may be referring to the Voices for Choices student group which is the GW chapter of Planned Parenthood...
