$29 million left in 2009 budget for abstinence-only programs  

I am highly disappointed in Obama and the rest of the Democrats in Washington who know that comprehensive sex education is the only effective way to reduce teen pregnancy and STD rates. Despite countless amounts of evidence that proves that abstinence-only education is an enormous failure, the 2009 Omnibus Appropriations Bill shows that $94 million was left in for these ineffective programs. The Senate Finance Committee recommended that $28 million be cut from ab-only education, but only $14 million was cut instead.

How much money do we have to waste on these horribly inaccurate and ineffective bullshit programs?

You can send a letter to Obama here, asking him to stop funding ridiculous educational tactics and instead support comprehensive sex education that works.

What next?

    That is very disappointing. You'd think Obama would know better. I feel bad for all those kids who will grow up confused, misdirected and probably riddled with STDs or pregnant. Not to mention feeling guilty about their natural urges all the time. They might as well reinstitute mandatory prayer.

    Genital Warts and Herpes are transmitted and contagious WITH CONDOMS.... so, if you don't want that STD, you must abstain from sex.

    Rarely have I met a person who knows what the Spinnbarkeit is. I believe all men and women should "know Thy Spinnbarkeit".

    Also, Biology 101 should be revisited....as a fetus is already sucking its thumb at 7 weeks gestation. 300 Late Term abortions occur EVERYDAY in USA. 20,000 abortions a day worldwide.

    Sex ed, my ass!
