Obama Takes THIS Shot At Abstinence-Only Education

President Obama is taking a shot at abstinence-only education with a proposal to cut off funding.


According to the Christian Post, Obama is targeting $10 million granted to programs like Heritage Keepers Abstinence Education, which does not instruct teens in any forms of birth control, and proposing to shift money to programs that do.

Heritage Keepers defends their program, saying, The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services recognizes the Heritage Keepers Abstinence Education program as a proven effective, evidenced-based intervention that reduces sexual initiation among teens as well as other positive research findings that impact the health and well-being of youth."

The Sexuality Information And Education Council Of The U.S. praises Obama's decision, calling abstinence-only education a failed approach and saying his plan to fund different types of programs, "demonstrates this administration's commitment to secure the right to quality sexuality education for young people."
