South Carolina abstinence education programs will get $800,000 through a federal grant, state officials announced last week. The federal grant is one of 28 given to states through the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to run abstinence-only sex education and HIV/STD prevention programs for children ages 12 to 18. The money will be distributed by South Carolina officials to both public and private organizations that run abstinence programs.
