16. "by focusing exclusively on encouraging children and adolescents to avoid sex" Complete distortion
Funding for comprehensive sex education is also in the bill. Sec. 2953 also provides $75 million per year through FY2014 for Personal Responsibility Education grants to States for programs to educate adolescents on both abstinence and contraception for prevention of teenage pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections, including HIV/AIDS.

The abstinence-only funding is not the entire $250 million. This has been part of the Senate bill since last year.
