Abstinence-Only Provisions in the Health Care Bill

As the battle for health care reform heats up in Congress, The League of Young Voters is stepping up to make sure that young voters are being heard. Yesterday, they launched a virtual PSA called "The Marshmallow Test: Teenagers" that aims to educate viewers about the dangers of the abstinence-only provisions in the heath care bill.

The video is a parody of the extremely hilarious video "The Marshmallow Test."

The abstinence-only provisions, a continuation of George Bush's bad sex ed policy, were recently added to the health care reform bill currently being debated in Congress.


Sen. Orin Hatch (R-UT) introduced an amendment that passed on a 12-11 vote in the Senate Finance Committee that would provide $50 Million for these programs.
