Yeah Orange County
Orange, Calif., Mar 12, 2009 / 11:41 pm (CNA).- Citing Planned Parenthood’s links to abortion, the Orange County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday voted unanimously to rescind the organization’s $290,000 contract which would have funded a sex education program.
The 5-0 vote followed a long debate and many comments from the public.
The funding was part of a $7.5 million contract with the Orange County Coalition of Community Clinics. $291,788 of that money went to Planned Parenthood to provide teens and pre-teens with sex education, including information on birth control and sexually transmitted diseases, the California Catholic Daily reports.
