Sex Ed Month of Action: Tell Your Senators to Keep Abstinence-Only Funding Out of Health Care Reform

Sex Ed Month of Action

Hey everyone,

As the Sex Ed Month of Action comes to a close, we have one more opportunity for you to make your voice heard!

As the Senate Finance Committee finalized its health care reform bill, Senator Orrin Hatch added $50 million in funding for abstinence-only-until-marriage programs!! President Obama nixed funding for these programs in his proposed budget – yet now we’re fighting to keep Congress from reinstating the program through health care reform.

It’s ridiculous, right?

So let’s make sure that the Senate does the right thing and removes abstinence-only program funding from the final health care reform bill!

Join activists from Advocates for Youth, Catholics for Choice, Choice USA, SIECUS and Spiritual Youth for Reproductive Freedom and call your Senators NOW. Tell them to keep these dangerous and ineffective programs out of the health care bill! End abstinence-only funding now!
