Defunding Sex Ed. Programs

MSNBC Hardball takes up the issue of sex education here, noting that in three states--Arkansas, Texas, and North Dakota—GOP lawmakers are attempting to defund sex education programs.

As a high school English teacher for 37 years, I can hardly believe anyone wants to defund sex education.  It is incredibly important.  So many students lack even the most basic knowledge of safe sex practices, never mind having any idea of more complex issues of sexuality. 

What can the GOP be thinking?  Do they want to increase the number of abortions?  Of teenage mothers?  Of teenagers with STD’s?  I’m completely baffled.
