Supermodel Giselle Bundchen attacks Roman Catholic church's opposition to condoms

Supermodel Giselle Bundchen is the biggest international star is making headlines for attacking the Roman Catholic church's opposition to condom use and abortion.

Bundchen, who paraded Tuesday evening for the Colcci label, told the Folha de S. Paulo newspaper that the church's take on contraception is hopelessly outdated because it was adopted when "the women were virgins, the guys were virgins."

"Today, no one is a virgin when they get married," Bundchen said.

Bundchen made the comments less than a month after Pope Benedict XVI used a five-day visit to Brazil the world's most populous Roman Catholic nation to criticize government-sanctioned abortion laws and birth control.

While most abortions are banned in Brazil, the government hands out more than 300 million free condoms each year to prevent AIDS and unwanted pregnancies.

"To prohibit condoms is ridiculous, just think of all the diseases transmitted without them," Bundchen told the newspaper.

She added: "How is it possible to not want to people to use condoms and also not have abortions? It's impossible, I'm sorry."

Bundchen isn't the first Brazilian celebrity to clash with the church over contraception.

Popular singer Daniela Mercury was pulled from a 2005 Vatican Christmas concert over her participation of an anti-AIDS campaign promoting condom use.
