Breaking: Buried government report reveals Abstinence-only a failure

News & Politics

Scott Swenson, over at RH Reality Check breaks the news that the government's own quietly released report today shows that abstinence-only programs -- having eaten 10 years and $1.5 billion in public funds -- are a complete and total bust.

Releasing reports unflattering to the government on a Friday afternoon is a time-honored tactic.

Now, you and I and everyone we know may have known this was coming for years but that's not the issue. The issue, as Swenson notes, is that Congress, armed with the feds' own report, must move to defund abstinence-only programs immediately.

Swenson has the whole story and a link to the report, HERE.
