I completely agree with the reasoning that there is a significant BENEFIT TO SOCIETY in accepting these funds. This is similar to the kind of issues going on in many countries around the world(AIDS/condoms). This is smart, forward thinking, and COST EFFECTIVE public spending. BUT!!!!!
It is a disgusting bit of "sausage making" for many people. It is not always religion that drives the resistance to this kind of spending. We must be careful not to alienate too many folks by dragging religion into the fray. I say this while fully aware that many religious folks do drag religion into this. Let them be the ignorant few, don't join them.
