At least 14 states, including Colorado, are refusing funding that ties sex education funds to abstinence-only programs. The failure of this religiously-based Bush crusade is shown by an increase in teen pregnancy rates for the first time in 15 years.
Our foreign aid is tied up the same way: no birth control, only abstinence or no dollars. I wonder, are the Bible-thumpers imposing their religious tenets on our little brown brothers? Or, are we assuring corporate America, an uninterrupted supply of cheap, uneducated, malleable labor?
It’s funny how righteous walk hand in hand with the money changers. Frigging hilarious.
