TAKE ACTION: End Abstinence-Only Funding!

Make calling your member of Congress, and urging them to oppose abstinence-only funding, the first thing you do on Monday morning. Don't know who your Representative is? Click here and go to "Elected Officials" to find out. Simply type in your zip code, and the names of your elected officials will come up. To get the phone number, click on the name of your representative. It's as easy as that!

Tell the Democratic Leadership to end
Abstinence-Only-Until-Marriage Funding!

The House Labor-Health and Human Services Appropriations Subcommittee is moving forward with a bill that increases funding for the Community-Based Abstinence Education (CBAE) programs even though these programs are ineffective in changing teen behavior, promote scientifically inaccurate information, and withhold critical life-saving information about the effectiveness of condoms in protecting against HIV.

Tell the Democratic Leadership that you stand with the overwhelming majority (82%) of Americans who support giving young people all the facts.

Failure to end abstinence-only funding is a failure of leadership.

Thanks for spreading the word and calling for action on this "brain fart" of the democratic majority!
