Congress Extends Funding for Abstinence Education
I cannot tell you how disappointed I am with House members who apparently do not read research or talk to parents or teens, all of which would tell them that abstinence-only education does not work to prevent pregnancy, disease, or sexual activity.
Elsewhere in the country, there is hope in people like MA Gov. Deval Patrick who has refused to take abstinence-only federal money that would not allow MA to provide full and comprehensive sexuality education.
Parents, call your representatives, and school districts - understand the policy about sexuality education and let your voice be heard! It is completely ridiculous that Valerie Huber of the National Abstinence Education Association can say that abstinence education enjoys two-to-one support among parents.
