Halt Funding Increase for Abstinence-Only-Until-Marriage Programs

By Rachel Hart, Reproductive Freedom Project at 5:28pm
A Democratic Congress is poised to give a failed policy -- abstinence-only-until-marriage programs -- its second-largest funding increase. The House Labor-HHS-Education Appropriations Subcommittee voted this week to increase funding for the Community Based Abstinence Education Program by $27.8 million in fiscal year 2008. We need your help to change this unconscionable situation!! Visit the ACLU action center so you can tell Congress that it is unacceptable to increase funding for abstinence-only-until-marriage programs.
