Abstinence-Only Sex Education to Make Comeback

Think Progress is reporting that the Senate version of the health care bill restores funding for abstinence-only sex education after Obama's FY2010 budget eliminate it. I'm sure you will remember that the reason it was cut from the budget in the first place was that abstinence-only sex education does not work. And yet, it has somehow made it into the Senate bill. It sounds like we have Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT) to thank for that.

It really baffles me why the Democrats are so eager to compromise with Republicans who are not going to vote for the final bill no matter what is in it. A bad bill may be better than no bill with regard to Obama's 2012 reelection, but I am not convinced that a bad bill is what the people need. I'm also not convinced that Obama deserves reelection.
