From the start it seemed odd that “conservatives” needed a gazillion dollars to impart their unrealistic birth control/morality message to kids: “Don’t Have Sex.” When you realize it was just a boondoggle to skim money from the government, a scam that did not change anything – in fact, those Texas teens are still birthing up a storm, leading the nation in first-time AND second-time births – then you realize it was only a matter of time before the grown ups currently in D.C. would cut the funding.
From the Dallas Morning News:
Texas’ policy is to deny contraceptives without parental consent wherever possible and to push an abstinence-only sex education program in public schools.
Surprize!!! Sweet little babies everywhere! Abortion numbers going up! They actually thought “No Sex” would be a firewall – or, they want to keep women – girls, rather – barefoot and pregnant.
Now can we get serious about reducing unintended pregnancies and abortions, rather than maintaining a policy that increases them? Yes, thanks so much.
