sex educationAfter five years and $500 million dollars, a newly released report shows that the results of the Obama administration's sex education program are dismal.

The report, compiled by the United States Department of Health and Human Services, shows that the Teen Pregnancy Prevention Program, which was established in 2010, has had almost no impact on adolescent behavior.

Ascend CEO Valerie Huber, whose organization promotes abstinence to students across America, says the program’s failure was predicted.

"We've had a number of little clues along the way that have kind of predicted that this may be the outcome of the president's Teen Pregnancy Prevention Program,” Huber explained. “And while we're disappointed that this means real lives have been affected, we're not too surprised with the results."

Congress is currently writing the budget for the remainder of this year, and Huber maintains that it is unclear what decisions will be made regarding the funding for both sex-ed and abstinence education.

"So it's really important for those parents who care about their own children – and what kind of programs are being implemented in their communities – to make sure that Congress is aware of these results, and that they change policy as a result."

Since taking office eight years ago, President Barack Obama has unsuccessfully tried to cut all funding for abstinence education from the budget every year.
