Massachusetts Tells Teens Abortion Is 'Much Easier Than it Sounds'

State-funded sex education website under fire after telling teens abortion is 'much easier than it sounds'

(UK Mail Online) -
A sex education website, funded by the state to the tune of $100,000 a year, has come under fire for glossing over abortion.

The Massachusetts-based Mariatalks.com has outraged pro-life groups by saying abortion is 'much easier than it sounds' and 'more common than you might think.'

'The commonwealth is using taxpayer money to tell kids how to get a secret abortion, and that’s wrong,' Linda Thayer, a former Boston schoolteacher who is vice president for educational affairs of Massachusetts Citizens for Life, told the Boston Herald.
