The Trump Administration is scaling back funding for a sex education program that started in 2010 under President Obama. The 81 pregnancy prevention grantees were supposed to receive $200 million dollars through 2020. but were informed by the Department of Health and Human Services last month that the money would dry up in June of 2018. This particular program has donated millions of dollars to Planned Parenthood.
WFA president Julaine Appling responds, “Using these taxpayer-funded federal grants, Planned Parenthood promotes unhealthy and promiscuous behavior among teens. Now, perhaps instead of offering these dangerous programs for free to schools, Planned Parenthood will be forced to sell them, making it somewhat less likely that schools will be so quick to adopt their program with its insidious teaching.”
