Governor Pawlenty of Minnesota just turned down more than $800,000 in federal sex education funds. Instead, he opted for $500,000 in abstinence-only funds that require $380,000 in MInnesota taxpayer funds to implement. The other program did not require any state funds. This was a compromise federal bill that allowed the abstinence training to please Republicans. Now we get screwed by having to pay for this program that doesn't work and later for its failures in higher health care bills, food stamps and welfare payments for single mothers and their children.

Good luck - when I lived there people didn't bother to abstain.
