How can they kill babies if kids abstain?

From AgapePress:

Governor Mitt Romney has proposed budget language that would have prevented the Massachusetts Department of Public Health from spending roughly $800,000 in federal money on a media campaign instead of for its designated purpose: abstinence-only education. The original wording would have given the department the option of using the money either for classroom education or for outreach methods such as TV or subway ads.

However both the House and Senate in the Bay State have rejected the governor's proposed restriction....

"Planned Parenthood-types in the various departments of public health around the country ... subvert that money, since they don't like abstinence teaching, to very, very expensive media campaigns that [tells children] 'Don't have sex -- but if you have to, use a condom,'" [Pro-family activist Brian Camenker with the Article 8 Alliance] says....

"One of the things that really sort of seems laughable about this whole thing is that the governor, one would think, controls the Department of Public Health -- and if the governor wanted to, he could just order them to spend it properly," Camenker observes. "So I'm a little confused as to why he's going through this charade."

Massachusetts [rolls eyes] what can you expect from the state that elected Teddy Kennedy and John Kerry to the Senate.
