A new analysis by an independent research organization reveals that claims made by proponents of Comprehensive Sex Ed – arguing the program's effectiveness – are unwarranted.
Mary Ann Mosack of the pro-abstinence education group, Ascend, points out that the results of this latest research only serve to reinforce what her organization has known for some time – that the claims of Teen Pregnancy Prevention Program (TPPP) advocates are hollow – at best.
The pro-family advocate maintains that this latest research was very thorough.
"This particular research study really went into a kind of the deep dive in the weeds of it to really show how very ineffective these programs are," Mosack pointed out.
Mosack notes that it is unfortunate that the Senate Appropriations Committee recently voted to fully fund the Obama-era TPPP program.
However, she insists that something can still be done.
"What the Senate did – putting TPPP back in as a fully-funded program – certainly can still be challenged,” Masack continued. “It's really important that citizens call their senators and representatives and tell them that they are unhappy – and that they are not supportive of these Teen Pregnancy Prevention Programs."
The House passed their budget last week, and a full Senate vote on their budget is expected next week. Afterward, the two sides will come together to agree on a final version.
