4. Familiar with those
I don't know if they receive Govt funding. I don't think so.
I need those organizations that do. Non-governmental.

5. Abstinence Only..A complete failure and funded with huge amounts...

of our tax dollars. It is a complete farce but even so the fundies and the pukes love it. Just like Palin's daughter as a spokesperson for Abstinence makes no sense.

On September 2nd Congress voted it out. Finally!

"Statement of James Wagoner, President of Advocates for Youth


We applaud the House of Representatives for voting, 264 to 153, to end funding for abstinence-only-until-marriage programs and bring science and evidence back into government policy. By jettisoning this ideological earmark from the Bush era, the House of Representatives has signaled that it is ready to put the health and well-being of young people before ideology. "
