Ohio's Republicans At It Again

* Just when you thought Ohio's Republicans might be moving forward, they remind you that they are still Neanderthals.  Here is the evidence as provided by Innovation Ohio:

Today, Republicans on the Ohio House Finance Committee voted to adopt changes to the two-year state budget that will significantly restrict the teaching of sexual education in the state, mandating an abstinence-only approach.
According to a description provided by the Committee Chairman, Representative Ron Amstutz, the measure would:
prohibit the teaching of sexual education coursework that endorses non-abstinence as   an acceptable behavior or promotes sexual gateway activity....

Wow! Republicans are endorsing and promoting abstinence education---- a totally worthless, unreliable, unscientific, right wing religious, program that provides students with nothing.  Thank you, Ohio Republicans, for continuing to confirm the fact that you don't live in the real world like the rest of us do.
