Congess extends abstinence-only funding
Perhaps I can mention this without this post devolving into a population pissing match, but FYI, on Wednesday the House approved continued funding of abstinence-only education as part of Section 510 of Title V of the Social Security Act. The Dems had indicated that they were going to cut the $50 million grant program, but it was reattached to the bill pretty late in the game, despite the fact that Rep. John Dingell (chair of the Energy and Commerce Committee, which oversees Title V funding) noted that it “seems to be a colossal failure.” So, really Dems, wtf? I hope you were distracted by all that work you’re putting in on getting solid energy legislation passed. Or something.
