President Barack Obama‘s getting criticized from the Left and the Right for his budget cutting.
But one cut was definitely good for science advocates: Obama eliminated abstinence-only funding for sex education.
The Secular Coalition for America had this to say (though this press release is not on their website at the time of this writing):
The Secular Coalition for America thanks President Obama for his decision to eliminate abstinence-only-until-marriage funding and replace it with funding for “scientifically accurate” teen pregnancy approaches. “Finally, sex education that is medically accurate and effective, instead of a hodge podge of medical misinformation and theological opinions — America’s children deserve no less,” said Ron Millar, the Secular Coalition’s Acting Director.
Take that, Bristol Palin.
