And good for them. New Jersey has turned down Federal funds for abstinence-only sex ed because of the absurd restrictions that come with it:
The Corzine administration has rejected federal abstinence education money because new rules won’t let teachers discuss contraception and requires them to describe sex outside marriage as potentially mentally and physically damaging.
State health and education officials sent a letter Tuesday to the federal government saying such requirements contradict the state’s sex education and AIDS education programs.
The state had accepted the $800,000 each year since 1997, but said new rules give them little flexibility.
Good for them. Several other states have refused the money as well. Sex education that does not mention contraception is not sex education at all, it’s deliberately withholding information that might save their life.
