Republicans Lie to Get Sex

I'm sorry that headline is wrong. It should read Republicans Lie to Prevent Sex. Please read about the mind-blowing lies that your government is spending your tax dollars to spread:

Many American youngsters participating in federally funded abstinence-only programs have been taught over the past three years that abortion can lead to sterility and suicide, that half the gay male teenagers in the United States have tested positive for the AIDS virus, and that touching a person's genitals "can result in pregnancy," a congressional staff analysis has found.
President Bush has enthusiastically backed the movement, proposing to spend $270 million on abstinence projects in 2005. Congress reduced that to about $168 million, bringing total abstinence funding to nearly $900 million over five years. It does not appear that the abstinence-only curricula are being taught in the Washington area.

Craigorian Chant reader contest: Free John Kerry bumper sticker (collector's item!) to anyone who comes up with a Bush domestic program that isn't based on lies.
