Abstinence Only will now have to abstain from using government funds

Yesterday, President Obama struck a blow to the abstinence-only community, cutting ALL of their funding streams in his new 2010 budget. Obama made it clear that our government should no longer fund these failed programs that promote misinformation, misogyny, discrimination and, of course, juggling and cinder block wielding abstinence clowns.

I stumbled upon this little gem just minutes ago:

That cartoon about sums it up... kids are going to have sex ( of some sort or another ). I always liken it to having put a bunch of kids in a room, by themselves, with a loaded gun. Sure, you tell them "Don't touch that gun." But wouldn't you also explain to them the consequences?
Kids are going through puberty. They are horny. They are going to have sex. Tell them not to, but also tell them how not to hurt themselves, ruin their lives and that of their unborn child.

This is such a relief. Abstinence only education is a waste of money, time, and potentially lives. I like your argument about the loaded gun, as well; not explaining the consequences of sex can ruin a teen's life completely.
