  Do not open until your 30th Birthday!

The insanity just keeps coming. The Bush administration is now offering grant money for sexual abstinence programs to be directed at adults up to the age of 30. Yes.

The federal government's "no sex without marriage" message isn't just for kids anymore.

Now the government is targeting unmarried adults up to age 29 as part of its abstinence-only programs, which include millions of dollars in federal money that will be available to the states under revised federal grant guidelines for 2007.

The government says the change is a clarification. But critics say it's a clear signal of a more directed policy targeting the sexual behavior of adults...

Wade Horn, assistant secretary for children and families at the Department of Health and Human Services, said the revision is aimed at 19- to 29-year-olds because more unmarried women in that age group are having children....

"The message is 'It's better to wait until you're married to bear or father children,' " Horn said. "The only 100% effective way of getting there is abstinence."

Actually, forced sterilization would work just as well, as would nunneries.


  • Does it have to be "voluntary" abstinence????

  • wil, it seems to be voluntary for now (though the other party in the equation may not think so). Maybe involuntary abstinence would be worth a higher rate?
