ACLU Sues USAID: Are We Exporting US Taxpayer-Funded Religion?
by: Amie Newman | RH Reality Check
The ACLU has waited long enough.
On Thursday, February 18th, they filed a lawsuit against USAID for refusing to comply with their Freedom of Information Act requests from July and September 2009, for documents related to USAID-funded abstinence-only-until-marriage programs abroad. The ACLU has patiently awaited documents that may help shed light on an audit completed last year suggesting USAID is dispersing money, unconstitutionally, for religiously-based HIV prevention programs.
