Abstinence Education Safe for Another Year
Title V, the program that provides $50 million in grants for abstinence education expired on June 30 of this year; however, an extension of the program was included in a recent Medicare bill. The President vetoed this bill due to concerns unrelated to abstinence, but both the Senate and the House voted to override the Presidential veto. Therefore, funding for abstinence has been extended for a period of twelve months!
