I Blame Obama
My least favorite quote from the article? It has to be this one:
"The abstinence-until-marriage program's objective is to reduce sexual activity in the adolescent population," said Rep. Mark Hilton, R-Catawba. "The comprehensive safe-sex program's objective is to reduce the risk of pregnancy and STDs."
And my favorite? This one from Rep. Bill Faison, D-Orange is great!
"I've got a 42-year-old son. I love him. But the reason I've got a 42-year-old son is that abstinence-only doesn't work," Faison said, followed by laughter from his colleagues. "Folks, we just need to be practical and help our kids out."
It's a balm to my heart to know that there are some reasonable people in state government for a change.
