|Rep. Tim Scott: the 47-year-old virgin?|
More: "National Abstinence Education Association President and CEO Valerie Huber told U.S. News in a statement that her organization 'is very encouraged by the appointment of Tim Scott to the Senate.' Huber notes Scott is a co-sponsor of the Abstinence Education Reallocation Act, which puts a premium on abstinence education. 'He has been a champion of Sexual Risk Avoidance (SRA) Abstinence Education for many years, but this cosponsorship signifies his ongoing commitment to best health outcomes for youth,' she said. Under the bill, abstinence education would be eligible for $110 million in annual federal funding. The bill calls for teaching 'the superior health benefits of sexual abstinence' and the 'skills needed to resist the negative influences of the pervasive sex-saturated culture.'"
