Federal Government To Spend $700k On Trans-Inclusive Sex Ed For 14-Year-Olds | Eastern North Carolina Now

The costly program seeks to create an "inclusive teen pregnancy program for transgender boys."

    The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is awarding nearly $700,000 taxpayer dollars to back pregnancy prevention programs for young girls who identify as boys, warning that "heteronormative" sexual education is inadequate.

    The $698,736 grant, which began in September 2023 and will continue until June 2027, according to government disclosures, will be allocated to the Center for Innovative Public Health Research, a non-profit that seeks to create "an inclusive teen pregnancy program for transgender boys."

    "Youth who are assigned female at birth ... are at risk for negative sexual health outcomes yet are effectively excluded from sexual health programs because gender-diverse youth do not experience the cisgender, heteronormative teen sexual education messaging available to them as salient or applicable," the award description claims.

    "Data suggest that AFAB [assigned female at birth] trans-identified youth may be less likely to use condoms when having sex with people who have penises and are at least as likely as cisgender girls to be pregnant," it goes on to say before adding that the "health inequity must be addressed."

    The Center for Innovative Public Health Research aims to provide sex education via a program called "Girl2Girl," which the organization describes as "a text messaging based-sexual health program designed for cisgender sexual minority girls 14-18 years of age."

    The center will then "test the resulting adaptation" in a national cohort of "700 trans-identified AFAB youth 14-18 years of age," measuring their use of contraception and testing for sexually transmitted diseases, as well as pregnancy rates.

    The funding from the HHS specifically comes from the National Institutes of Health's National Institute of Nursing Research. The National Institute of Nursing Research was given authority to spend a total of $57 million taxpayer dollars in fiscal year 2024.

    The Center for Innovative Public Health Research is slated to receive another $1.4 million taxpayer dollars from HHS to develop a "population-based HIV prevention program for trans girls," specifying that the program will "address the lack of gender inclusive HIV prevention programming."

    "Messaging will be gender affirming" and will "reduce internalized transphobia," the award description adds.

    But the award for nearly $700,000 taxpayer dollars is not the only action that the HHS has taken to push transgenderism. The Daily Wire previously revealed that the National Institutes of Health (NIH), a subagency of the HHS, funded a study on the use of puberty blockers and cross-sex hormone treatment to the tune of $3 million despite transgender children's hospitals admitting that the practice could result in permanent sterilization.
