A number of American states are aborting their abstinence-only sex-ed agendas:
The number of states refusing federal money for “abstinence-only” sex education programs jumped sharply in the past year as evidence mounted that the approach is ineffective.
At least 14 states have either notified the federal government that they will no longer be requesting the funds or are not expected to apply, forgoing more than $15 million of the $50 million available, officials said. Virginia was the most recent state to opt out.
Until this year, only four states had passed up the funding.
Dept. of HHS’s Stan Koutstaal says he’s “concerned” about the rejection and worries that school kids are “missing out”. Even he doesn’t understand sex.
