States Revealed to Be Illegally Promoting 'Sex Textline' for CHILDREN, with Federal Funding

• Humans Are Free

At issue are anonymous sex-text hotlines (in Virginia, called "BrdsNBz") for teens being promoted by state health departments — in several cases through funding from Title V federal grants.

Title V federal grants are designated for abstinence education or "education exclusively on sexual risk avoidance that teaches youth to voluntarily refrain from sexual activity."

"Virginia's sex textline is clearly not providing abstinence education and therefore represents, at best, an obvious misuse of federal funds, or worse, a flat out violation of federal law," said Victoria Cobb, president of The Family Foundation of Virginia.
