ABSTRACT
The article discusses the implications of the April, 1997 letter from Debra Haffner, president of the Sexuality Information and Education Council of the United States (SIECUS), which advocated sexual abstinence education. It was surprising then that public health officials from all fifty states submitted grant applications to the federal government to install such programs from SIECUS. The failure of the Title X of the Public Health Service Act, which aims reduce pregnancy rates in the country, led Congress to authorize $250 million in abstinence-education programs advocated by SIECUS.
