"Hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars have been utterly wasted on 'abstinence-only until marriage' programs. Why? To appease a rabidly vocal minority that cares more about getting our government to promote their religious ideology than they do about the health of young people. 'Abstinence-only until marriage' propaganda has been particularly insulting to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people because the most vocal opponents of marriage equality have been abstinence-only's most vocal proponents. Given this latest study - which confirms multiple other government and privately funded reports - it would be unconscionable for Congress to appropriate one more penny to these thoroughly debunked, ideologically driven, harmful and wasteful programs." -- National Gay & Lesbian Task Force Executive Director Matt Foreman
