Rosie Perez says abstinence ed is “insane”

Just one more reason why I love me some Rosie.
From Geraldo Rivera’s Geraldo at Large:

Rivera: “But many are unsatisfied with the pace of progress. Even as world leaders gathered at the United Nations Wednesday to find new ways to tackle the epidemic the actress Rosie Perez led AIDS activists at a rally outside.”
Rosie Perez: “I’m disappointed in our leadership here in the United States. Yes the United States is giving a lot of money for the, for the fight against AIDS but to push a program of abstinence is just insane. It, it doesn’t work. We have to be realistic and we have to do even more than what’s being done.”
