Condom bill on hold

This article was originally published in The Tan Sheet

Executive Summary

California state Sen. Jim Battin (R) suspends bill SB 977, which would require condom warning labels alerting consumers about potential danger of contracting human papilloma virus. Battin pulled legislation July 12 after facing opposition in Assembly Health Committee; bill previously passed Senate by unanimous vote. Concerns, primarily voiced by Planned Parenthood, suggested consumers would not read the label and would be discouraged from condom use if they did. The bill, first introduced Feb. 23, will be held in the Health Committee and reintroduced next session with amended language. A recent NIH study concluded evidence is insufficient to evaluate effectiveness of condoms in preventing spread of HPV (1"The Tan Sheet" July 23, p. 13)
