Whether "any sexually active person is at risk for AIDS"

While searching for something else, I came across this About.com article on whether lesbians can transmit AIDS to one another. Here’s what this lady, Kathy Belge, says,

“Let’s start with the basics. Anyone who is sexually active is at risk for HIV.”

Untrue. My wife and I are sexually active, and we are not at risk for AIDS. Neither one of us had sexual relations with anyone before we married. Neither of us has committed adultery.

Therefore, we are not at risk of getting AIDS (from sexual contact).

An excellent column from Judie Brown on the fight over the Gonzalez v. Carhart decision, and how the Colorado Right to Life ad was not an “attack” on James Dobson, but a “wake up call”:

Mrs. Thatcher once reminded her countrymen that when consensus among a
particular group of people becomes more important than the principles upon which
that group of people claims to stand, “abandoning all beliefs, principles,
values and policies” is the result. Such appears to be the case among those who
have for so long supported a politically-motivated effort that has resulted in
nothing of substance.

And here’s what Dr. Alan Keyes had to say about it:

I am of course not surprised or dismayed that there should be disagreement
among pro-lifers. I have been deeply disappointed, however, that instead of
answering the lucid arguments being made by people like Judie Brown and myself,
the Gonzales v. Carhart cheering section has chosen petty maneuvers and power
plays aimed at damaging or silencing their critics.

Now, the same can be said of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.
