Funding for Abstinence-Only
Istook Amendment to the 2002 Labor-HHS-Education Appropriations Bill
House Roll Call No. 379
107th Congress, 1st Session

Failed: 106-311 (see complete tally)
Rep. Istook sought to increase funding for "abstinence until marriage" programs by $33 million, taking the money from the Centers for Disease Control and the Child Care Development Block Grant. Abstinence funding was already slated to increase by $20 million in FY 2002, which is $10 million more than the President requested. In a report released in June, the U.S. Surgeon General found insufficient evidence that "abstinence until marriage" works.

Girls Inc. opposed this amendment.

The amendment was defeated 106-311.
