Ohio governor scorns abstinence programs (

Posted at One News Now.
The pro-abortion governor of Ohio says public school students in his state do not need abstinence-until-marriage education programs. Democratic Governor Ted Strickland has proposed a new budget that would eliminate the $500,000 the state spends annually on abstinence-based sex education.

Strickland recently told the Western Star newspaper that he does not believe programs encouraging kids to practice abstinence work "in the long run." However, Linda Harvey of the Columbus-based pro-family group Mission America says the Ohio governor is predictably bowing to pressure from homosexual and pro-abortion lobbyists in his network of friends.

So far, there has only been one documented occurrence of a pregnancy resulting despite complete abstinence.

The angel said to her, "Do not be afraid, Mary; for you have found favor with God. And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall name Him Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David; and He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and His kingdom will have no end." Mary said to the angel, "How can this be, since I am a virgin?"
-Luke 1:30-34
