.- Condom manufacturers and the abortion industry continue to exploit St. Valentine’s Day, which was traditionally a celebration of selfless love and marriage, said Fr. Thomas Euteneuer, president of Human Life International.

This week has been promoted as National Condom Week at campuses across the country, and schools have authorized organizations, some of which provide or facilitate abortions, to distribute condoms to students.

“National Condom Week is a shameless marketing stunt promoted by the abortion industry that targets high school and college students using the same techniques that in the past were used by Big Tobacco,” said Fr. Euteneuer.

“Condoms break, tear or slip off 1 time out of 12 times, ensuring abortionists who participate in National Condom Week a steady stream of business executing abortions and dispensing medications to treat STDs,” the priest said.

He explained that St. Valentine was a priest who continued to perform marriages even after the Emperor Claudius II had outlawed marriage in a short-sighted attempt to increase the size of his army. The faithful priest was arrested and condemned to death. Before being executed, he sent a note to a young bride, in which his closing words were Your Valentine.
