1. "Abstinence-Only" Programs: Ideology Over Science (02/28/2013)
Description: “Abstinence-only” programs are not proven effective and may in fact result in riskier behavior by teenagers. Responsible sex-education programs, on the other hand, have demonstrated positive results such as delayed initiation of sex, reduced frequency of sex, and increased contraceptive use.
Description: Barring the District from using its own locally raised revenues for abortion services usurps the prerogatives of the local D.C. government and tramples the rights of District residents. According to the Kaiser Family Foundation, 64,500 nonelderly Medicaid-enrolled women whose access is affected by the ban resided in the city in 2009. No other jurisdiction or state is told how to use its locally raised revenue. In fact, 17 states currently choose to provide local funds for abortion services.
3. Guarantee Women’s Access to Birth Control (02/28/2013)
Description: In theory, the concept is simple: a woman walks into a pharmacy with a birth-control prescription from her doctor and should walk out with the medication – without intimidation, without delay, without a run-around. But in reality, some pharmacists refuse to fill women’s legally prescribed birth-control prescriptions. Some even go so far as to lecture women, humiliate them in public, or refuse to hand back the prescription after they refuse to fill it.
