Jamaica's Reaction to Statement By Portia Simpson Miller Part V

Apparently the rights to freedom of expression, thought and conscience must not be tolerated. The following was posted by Wayne West of the Isaachar Foundation in the Jamaica Observer. 
Why a conscience vote on sodomy, Mrs Simpson Miller?
Dear Editor,
Baggaley et al of the Department of Infectious Disease Epidemiology, MRC Centre for Outbreak Analysis and Modelling, Faculty of Medicine, Imperial College London, Paddington, London, UK, reporting in the International Journal of Epidemiology of August 2010 in the article: "HIV transmission risk through anal intercourse: systematic review, meta-analysis and implications for HIV prevention", stated that among both heterosexuals and homosexuals, "Unprotected anal intercourse is a high-risk practice for HIV transmission".
Also, local media reported that the Jamaican Government found it necessary to set aside a total of some J$594 million for HIV prevention during the 2009 to 2010 and 2010 to 2011 fiscal years.
In light of this data, why would Mrs Simpson Miller consider bringing the decriminalisation of sodomy to a conscience vote ?
