Abstinence only group gets no bid grant from CDC

LJ-SEC: (ORIGINALLY POSTED BY [info]wyldraven)

An "Institute" of Ideology

In April, the so-called Medical Institute for Sexual Health (MISH) made headlines after the federal government announced that the group would receive a $200,000 grant to establish a sexual health curriculum for medical students. Sexual health experts affiliated with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) were taken aback.

Why the outrage? Despite what its legitimate-sounding name might suggest, MISH is really nothing more than a thinly veiled ideological interest group that manipulates science to advance its mission.
