Abstinence-only programsEdit

Some claim that federally funded absitinence-only programs provide questionable medical information. The progams are not accurate.

Abstinence-only programs is slated to receive $168 million in federal funding in 2006. Many of these programs use taxpayer dollars to disseminate gravely inaccurate medical information.

A report prepared for Rep. Henry A. Waxman paints a disturbing picture of federally funded abstinence-only programs, finding commonly-used curricula rife with scientific inaccuracies, factual errors, and troubling biases. The report found that curricula used by over two-thirds of federally funded community-based abstinence grantees "contain false, misleading or distorted information about reproductive health."
