Planned Parenthood Sues Trump Admin for Cutting Funding to Radical Sex Ed Programs

Claire Chretien : Feb 20, 2018 :

"Three of the [TPP] programs actually had negative effects" and increased sexual initiation, pregnancy, or oral sex, Mosack explained. They were "not effective" yet "we spent almost a billion dollars on those programs during the Obama administration."
