Hey, your tax dollars don't just fund lies about Iraq! From the ACLU's excellent website countering "abstinence only" sex ed:
To protect teens from unintended pregnancy and STDs, the federal government pours millions of taxpayer dollars into abstinence-only-until-marriage programs that teach which of the following points?
a. "One of the best ways to avoid AIDS is to 'avoid homosexual behavior.'"
b. "Abstinence without faith = Failure (It’s God’s idea!)"
c. "AIDS can be transmitted by skin-to-skin contact."
d. "The liberation movement has produced some aggressive girls today, and one of the tough challenges for guys who say no will be the questioning of their manliness."
ANSWER: All of the above!
Fabulous, Don! Tell us what we've won!
If you don't like abortion, think about this: three out of ten girls in America get pregnant before their 20th birthday. 800,000 teen pregnancies. Every year.
We have GOT to take the blinders off in this country. That is all.
