Senate Majority Leader (and medical doctor) Bill Frist: "It would be very hard" to transmit HIV through sweat and tears

Waxman (L) and Frist (R) probably have different thoughts on what sex education is.

Perhaps Frist needs more education on this matter, now that he’s calling for a review of the government’s atrocious, factually inaccurate “abstinance programs.” You’ll recall that Senator Henry Waxman’s (D-Calif.) report on this found that disinformation was included such as:

• A 43-day-old fetus is a “thinking person.”

• HIV, the virus that causes AIDS, can be spread via sweat and tears.

• Condoms fail to prevent HIV transmission as often as 31 percent of the time in heterosexual intercourse.

One curriculum, called “Me, My World, My Future,” teaches that women who have an abortion “are more prone to suicide” and that as many as 10 percent of them become sterile. This contradicts the 2001 edition of a standard obstetrics textbook that says fertility is not affected by elective abortion, the Waxman report said.
