What Does the Bush Administration Have Against Gay Kids?

October 8, 2007 at 4:18 pm 2 comments

That’s the question that popped into my head on watching the new abstinence until marriage propaganda piece from the Department of Health and Human Services.

Yeah, gay kids should tell their parents to tell them to wait to have sex until their married. Oh, wait same-sex couples can only marry in Massachusetts, but not the 49 other states. And the only reason same-sex couples can marry in Massachusetts is because President Bush’s attempt to pass an amendment to the U.S. Constitution banning gay marriage failed.

But, then of course, data from a study commissioned by HHS has come out saying that abstinence only programs have failed despite the flood of cash thrown at them by the Bush administration.

From RH Reality Check:

“After 10 years and $1.5 billion in public funds these failed abstinence-only-until-marriage programs will go down as an ideological boondoggle of historic proportions,” said James Wagoner, President of Advocates for Youth.

“The tragedy is not simply the waste of taxpayer dollars, it is the damage done to the young people who have been on the receiving end of distorted, inaccurate information about condoms and birth control. We have been promoting ignorance in the era of AIDS, and that’s not just bad public health policy, its bad ethics”.

Much love: Think Progress
