    Republicans kill successful birth-control program in Colorado

    Republicans kill successful birth-control program in Colorado | Denver Sun Times

    Republicans in the Colorado Senate killed an effort this week to set aside funding for a birth control program that provides IUDs to low-income women. The Colorado Family Planning Initiative has been praised for contributing to a 40 percent drop in teen births over the last five years. The program, previously funded by a private donor, won an award in Washington, D.C. just days ago.

    Looks like Colorado Republicans want to go with the Crane Public School in West Texas model of “Abstinence-Only” education... you know, the one where there was an eventual outbreak of Chlamydia.

    In this case it appears they are looking for a sister idea that will balloon teen pregnancies.

    Republicans will be republicans and assholes will be assholes. Sometimes, like in this instance the two are the same thing.

    They do this because, you know, they want there to be fewer abortions. That makes sense, right?

    the real question is if it was such a successful private program why did the govt take it over?

    Got to say, that was one of the GOP's stupider moves...

    A 40% decrease is a huge accomplishment. Oh well, I hope they diverted the funds to welfare, snap, Medicaid, and childcare for the likely increase in teenage pregnancies. Yeah, I won't hold my breath.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    Foolish is installing IUDs in teens, the most likely to have life threatening problems from IUDs.

    Source?

    This research shows it does not cause serious side effects.

    The government was given a privately funded grant, the legislation would provide state funding, thus expanding the program.
