    Sex Education Programs For Teens Targeted By GOP Lawmakers

    The North Dakota legislature is currently considering an amendment to an anti-abortion bill that would effectively block a $1.2 million federal grant for a sex education program for teens who are homeless or in foster programs.
    Planned Parenthood and North Dakota State University were jointly planning to administer the program, which would have provided counseling and information about abstinence, contraception and sexually transmitted infections. But state Rep. Bette Grande (R-Fargo) proposed to kill the grant to keep Planned Parenthood out of teen sex education in North Dakota, even though the family planning provider does not operate any clinics in the state.

    "They're not a part of how we do business in this state," Grande said of Planned Parenthood in January after the sex ed program was announced. "It is an overt abortion industry that we don't want to be a part of."

    Of course, that is the Catholic plan. The Republican Party is increasingly the Catholic Church.

    The point of what - blocking the funding for the program?

    Because they're ****ing stupid and they only want to create a bigger bigger problem.

    In our efforts to oppose abortion, let's torpedo services and education that reduce pregnancies!

    ... You just can't make this **** up.

    I thought the GOP wanted welfare rolls and food stamps to go down.

    Here's how:

    *Teach sex ed. to everyone.

    *Empower school nurses and counselors to dispense Plan B.

    *Fund all abortions for underprivileged mothers.

    Because if you don't say the word "sex," they won't have it.

    Yeah, something like that.
    It works, too, I meant look at dogs. They don't know the wor--
    Wait, no.
    How about parrots, then? They don't know the wor--

    Oh, wait. Some do but yet they somehow all manage to have sex.

    Yeah, so nevermind.

    What we are - are people, not animals at all. We aren't compelled by things called nature.

    At all.

    Like, ever.

    If you don't have welfare moms to blame for sucking all the money out of the country then who do you point the finger at?

    Welfare would be just one thing touched by something of this nature. The Arkansas proposed bill states 'entity' - meaning, a medical facility (hospital, prenatal clinic) won't receive any sort of funding from the state for any reason if they engage in said practices. *unless* (again - Arkansas reference only, here) - it's to save the life of the mother (and that is later expanded to include the removal of fetus if it's no longer viable and such related concerns).

    So not even permitting it in regard to rape - which is pathetic.

    All in all - at least along hte lines of Arkansas' proposal, it's the same deal the federal government just went through.
