Obama proposes cutting funds for abstinence only

I am pleased to hear this:

[May 7, 2009] WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama's $3.55 trillion budget proposal, released on Thursday, eliminates spending for programs that teach U.S. schoolchildren sexual abstinence and shifts funds to programs aimed at reducing teenage pregnancy.

The administration's $78.4 billion spending plan for the Department of Health and Human Services, which must be reviewed and approved by Congress, includes support for teen pregnancy prevention.

"The program will fund models that stress the importance of abstinence while providing medically accurate and age-appropriate information to youth who have already become sexually active," the budget proposal said.

That's why I voted for and supported this guy. You still got a lot of work to do, though, Obama. Internal Monologue is all up in your business!
