Abstinence-Only Sex Ed and the Health Care Reform Bill

Just caught this little nugget of political game playing over at Slate

Conservatives are not, as a rule, terribly excited about health care reform. But one subset has high hopes for reform: proponents of abstinence-only sex education, who were pleasantly surprised to see an amendment that would provide $50 million in federal funding for their programs survive in the final Senate legislation.

 Has to make you wonder just how well has abstinence-only sex education been working over the past eight years… Go ahead and take a look for yourself.  A program failing to effectively educate our children according to three federally funded studies in a row, but hey it’s a bipartisan bill right?
