ABSTRACT
The article reports that Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick may discontinue a federally-funded abstinence-only sex education program. A study released to Patrick has found that students in these programs are not less likely to have sex than students in other programs. Such programs concentrate on the flaws of prophylactics and birth control pills while not also examining their benefits. The federal grant money cannot be used to fund programs that teach students about contraception.
