Breach of Faith

As the promises have grown so have the unfunded liabilities:

If You Liked Elders, You'll Love Obama/Clinton

Speaking Tuesday to the Urban League in Springfield, former Surgeon General of the United States Jocelyn Elders said there should be more comprehensive health education programs in schools, including programs that give young people information about contraception as well as promoting sexual abstinence.

Elders said she looks at abstinence-only education as "almost child abuse". She says teens have feelings and hormones raging, and haven't been equipped with the tools to make good decisions.

Elders, former Surgeon General for the first Clinton administration, was born Minnie Lee Jones in Schaal, Arkansas. In college, she changed her name to Minnie Joycelyn Lee (later she used just Joycelyn).
