Kudos to Governor Patrick for not playing politics with the lives of our state's teenagers. The federal government has been downright audacious thinking it can - under the pretenses of being benevolent - toss around money with lead chains attached. Let's make no bones about it: abstinence-only sex education doesn't work. It could even exacerbate things by not giving hormonal teens the knowledge they need.
Giving out funds to schools that only teach abstinence is like the Federal Government giving away cars without any transmissions. By the time people pay the repair costs, they may as well have bought their own damn car anyway. So, Governor Patrick just told those dirty, used salesmen in D.C. to take their "free" money and shove it. I only like him more for it.
