It doesn’t take much to stir up the right-wing bloggers and uneducated pundits (I’m looking at you,Rush Limbaugh). How much DOES it take, precisely? $100,000. What are they freaking out aboutnow? Sex education for pregnant and at-risk female juvenile offenders.
The National Institutes of Health, part of the US Department of Health and Human Services, is providing $100,000 in grant funding to Danielle Parrish, a researcher at the University of Houston, to conduct a study of pregnant and at-risk teenage girls who are on probation in Houston, Texas. Dr. Parrish, an assistant professor at the University of Houston Graduate College of Social Work, noted that at least a third of the girls in a juvenile detention center that she visits frequently were visibly pregnant.
