Wisconsin Says No to Federal Dollars!

By Rachel Hart, Reproductive Freedom Project at 5:31pm
The Associated Press is reporting that Governor Jim Doyle of Wisconsin has directed the state to turn down about $600,000 in federal abstinence-only-until-marriage money because new rules would limit how much recipients could talk about contraception or sexually transmitted diseases. Wisconsin joins New Jersey, along with a handful of other states, in rejecting federal funding for these programs. Congratulations Wisconsin!
