Take Action: Stop the Return of Abstinence-Only Education

From the Advocates for Youth website:
On Tuesday night, Senator Orrin Hatch (R-UT) pushed through an amendment in the Senate Finance Committee authorizing $50 million in funding for abstinence-only programs as part of Health Care Reform – despite over 10 years of evidence that these programs do not work.
By a razor-thin vote of 12-11, the Senators on the Finance Committee gave conservative ideology a victory over science and common sense. We are too close to finally ending federal funding for failed abstinence-only programs. Tell your Senators it's time to stop these programs once and for all!
Please take action and let your representatives know how you feel. It will only take a minute!
