War on Abstinence

Ryan T. Anderson - First Things blog- was startled to discover an alarming trend that has gone unreported:

"The ACLU and Planned Parenthood have teamed up in an aggressive campaign over the past several years -- a campaign to pressure states to eliminate abstinence education and to reject federal funding for these programs.

"And though their work hasn't drawn much attention, it has been remarkably successful. A year ago, only four states refused federal abstinence-education funding. Today the number is seventeen. The goal is to get enough states to refuse the federal abstinence-education funding to the point where the ACLU and Planned Parenthood can convince Congress to eliminate such funding entirely.

"All this is happening, by the way, as fresh reports arrive almost every month about the benefits of teen abstinence and the effectiveness of abstinence programs."

Too many public schools, esepcially in California, are supporting abortion by denying the voice of abstinence only proponents. Parents beware!
