Should Congress Continue Funding Abstinence-only Education?

    If Congress wants to revoke funding for organizations such as Planned Parenthood because they offer abortions and contraceptives (based on religious doctrine), then it should work in the other direction and there shouldn't be money in place to teach abstinence (based on religious doctrine). Especially when there is no empirical evidence that it works. If kids are to be taught that their bodies are temples, then they should not be shamed into believing that sex is dirty, nor denied the real world knowledge that everyone has a choice with their bodies. Preaching abstinence over sex ed/contraception and hoping kids don't have sex is like telling kids not to eat candy while leaving off the health facts on the packet and denying them access to the dentist.
