Orrin Hatch's $50 Million Sex Boondoggle

When will they stop pushing this stupidity?

Talk about pork

Sen. Orrin G. Hatch (R-Utah) won inclusion of an amendment in the Senate Finance Committee bill that would provide $50 million to states to use for abstinence programs, and the funding survived the version of the legislation that emerged from Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.)

Abstinence only programs don’t work. They don’t help stopping teen pregnancy, nor do they help to lower the amount of abortions. All they do is fund nonsense and hurt kids.
