'Fox and Friends' hosts attacked the federal government on Friday for spending $350 million on “Planned Parenthood-style” sex ed classes in public schools, instead of funding White House tours (video below), reports ThinkProgress.org.
The hosts did not mention that the CDC recently reported that there were 110,197,000 sexually transmitted infections in the U.S., which seems to strongly indicate a need for comprehensive sexual education programs.
"The federal government is spending apparently $350 million for Planned Parenthood-style sex education programs in western states, including Montana, Idaho, Oregon, Alaska, for sex education programs starting now in kindergarten," reported Gretchen Carlson.
"It’s so shocking because we remember the sequester, it was all about it’s going to end everything, we’ll have to close the White House tours, we’ll have to close some small airport towers and things like that. So they did that, and a whole other list of things. Yet, they’re still able to find $350 million for this program that is comprehensive and graphic," added Steve Doocy.
"Now we find another $350 million is going to this program for kids as low as five years old. It’s absolutely insane. $350 million, do you know how long that would keep the white house tours going? 100 years! The White House could be open for as long as us and our grandchildren would be around. Instead, they’re going to learn, I don’t even want to know what they’re teaching them," complained Eric Bolling.
