Mary Anne Mosack of Ascend, the sexual risk avoidance organization, says liberals have argued for at least 20 years that SRA programs are risky and ineffective, but research proves them wrong.
"It's rather worn out and very unsubstantiated, especially when you look at some of the work done by The Institute for Research & Evaluation," Mosack tells AFN.
According to the Institute, out of more than 100 peer-reviewed studies, some of the strongest, most current school-based comprehensive sex education (CSE) programs worldwide show very little evidence of effectiveness.
Meanwhile, even with the House's latest move, the SRA program has funding through 2023.
"We still retain sexual risk avoidance education funding through the state block grants called Title V," Mosack notes.
She is fairly confident that the funding will be restored if the Republicans take back the House in November.
