Bill Reintroduced to End Funding of Abstinence-Only Programs

U.S. Senator Frank Lautenberg (D–N.J.) and California Representative Barbara Lee (D–Calif.) reintroduced a bill to end federal funding of abstinence-only programs, Ms. magazine reports. The Repealing Ineffective and Incomplete Abstinence-Only Program Funding Act would transfer all funding for the Title V abstinence-only program to the Personal Responsibility Education Program (PREP), which funds comprehensive, evidence-based programs that include information on sexually transmitted infections (STIs). In effect, the bill would redistribute $50 million annually to PREP. In the past 15 years, Congress has directed more than $1.5 billion of federal funds to abstinence-only programs.
