    Because they were earmarked for abstinence education.

    This is what they took their stand against...

    "....he wants to enlist the support of the organization's coalition members to lobby against abstinence-only-until-marriage funding" from the abstract.

    The definition of "abstinence education" from the text:

    "* Has as its exclusive purpose teaching the social, psychological, and health gains to be realized from sexual activity....
    "*Teaches abstinence from sexual activity outside of marriage as the expected standard for all school-age children...."

    You have to read this.

    Sorry, it's a school library doc so I can't post a link...but..

    McGee, Michael. Contemporary Sexuality, Jan2003, Vol. 37 Issue 1, p7, 1/3p.

    He's a Planned Parenthood Guru who has made it his life's work to sexualize children while keeping them good and ignorant.

    Of course. Planned Parenthood's mission is to kill babies, not prevent them.

    Not only did they want to not take the money and refuse to teach abstinence themselves...

    they pushed to prevent OTHER people from teaching it.

    So there you have it...Planned Parenthood is absolutely not about education or health. It's about promoting abortion. They say it themselves.

    That saddens but does not surprise me. I've read numerous accounts of pregnant young women going to PP for advice and never given info on adoption as a "choice" They make no money on that. When people say "no one is pro-abortion" I cry "horseshit" People who profit from it, are not "pro choice" They are "anti life"

    As I've mentioned before, I am pro choice. In fact, for years we gave money to PP. Then I discovered how corrupt they were. Instaed we now give to Catholic Social Services who still believes in adoption.

    Sex education is important and teen pregnancy is cause for concern. But what they are doing, aint working.

    Refused money for "abstinance" education of "abstinance only" education?

    I guess we'll never know without a library card.

    You could look it up yourself.

    The funding they were trying to block was money that was to be used to teach abstinence. Not "Abstinence and abortion safety" with the implication that abortion is a much better option for everyone.

    PP wasn't only not interested in accepting any such income (it would require them to teach kids that not having sex was an option! Gads!) but they wanted to prevent anyone else from being paid to teach it, either.

    You bet they did.

    They didn't want children to be taught that sex is best postponed till adulthood. What scumbags.

    just like I said yesterday when you started that other thread

    you have an OBVIOUS bias and AGENDA (with which I strongly disagree)
    and you will NOT be fair in your "research paper"


    you are merely intent upon IGNORING ANYTHING GOOD that PP does and concentrate completely on just t he things that piss you off.

    this makes you 2 things;

    1. a hero to conservatives everywhere
    2. a very bad researcher

    "abstinance until marriage" is a fools concept

    most people have sex LONG before they ever get married

    there is NOTHING FKN WRONG with fkn outside of marriage

    in fact
    REAL researchers and reporters indicate that people who have sex BEFORE marriage generally end up in healthier relationships when they do, finally, tie the old knot.

    but with your bias and zeal
    and willing ness to ignore any information that doesn't fit your ignorant agenda
    I predict great things for you in the conservative media!

    fox news would love to have you come spin reality and spread partial truths for them

    postponed until "adulthood" is NOT the same thing as "wait until marriage"
