Eight Months On, HHS Still Peddles Abstinence-Only

No, that’s not Leslee Unruh or the National Abstinence Education Association.

It’s the Obama Administration.

Here’s the new tv ad from 4parents.gov, run by the US Dept. of Health and Human Services:

So , let’s see, you’ve been in office 8 months now, right Barack? And this is what we’re still peddling?

It gets worse at their website. Here’s what they have to say about marriage:

This Web site talks a lot about marriage, and that waiting until
marriage is a sensible choice for your son or daughter to make when it
comes to sex. But what’s so valuable about marriage? Why is marriage
any different, or any better than other family situations?

First of all, let’s be clear on one important point. In general,
children – and adults – do better in homes headed by a married mother
and father.


What are the benefits married people enjoy?

  • Live longer.
  • Have better physical and emotional health.
  • Are happier.
  • Earn more.
  • Enjoy better sex lives.

That’s right, folks. Tell your kids they better get
hitched to their heterosexual partner, or else you’ll never have great
sex and you’ll die young, poor and unhappy. And whatever you do, don’t
talk about "the parts"…

Your tax dollars (still) at work…

    Sadly this doesn’t surprise me. the Obama administration has been extremely solicitous of the conservative and evangelical Christian community since taking office and they seem loath to bring in members of the faith community such as the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice that have been working on these issues for years.
