Orrin Hatch's $50 Million Sex Boondoggle
Booooghhhh! I can't stop shuddering at the horrible mental image that headline forced into my sweet, unsuspecting brain!
Of course the body of the article is a lot less shocking:
Sen. Orrin G. Hatch (R-Utah) won inclusion of an amendment in the Senate Finance Committee bill that would provide $50 million to states to use for abstinence programs, and the funding survived the version of the legislation that emerged from Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.)
Abstinence only? Sure, let's keep throwing good money down that rat-hole!
Why don't these people just grow up and admit that some teens (the lucky ones) are going to um, "do it" before their wedding night? Why is that such a shocking revelation? Just grow up and deal with it and let's work on preventing STD's and unwanted pregnancies.
