NARAL says McDonnell's agenda costs state federal sex ed money - Politifact says true
Edited on Thu Jun-30-11 08:40 AM by Derechos
Naral statement - "Virginia spends $400,000 on abstinence programs while losing $2.5 million in federal funds due to Gov. Bob McDonnells "political agenda."


Lets recap:

A video by NARAL Pro-Choice Virginia said that abstinence-only programs pursued under McDonnell have cost the state about $400,000. Meanwhile, the group says the state missed out on about $2.5 million in federal funding for comprehensive sex education.

Its true the state spent about $400,000 for a federal abstinence-only grant. And its true that the McDonnell administration did not apply for a comprehensive sex education grant that would have sent almost $2.6 million to Virginia during fiscal year 2010 and 2011. Because Virginia is now ineligible to apply for the comprehensive grant through 2014, the state will wind up declining a much greater amount of money than NARAL claimed.
