4:35pm ET - In a 2008 stump speech, then Presidential candidate Barack Obama said “If you get a federal grant, you can’t use that grant money to proselytize to the people you help and you can’t discriminate against them,”  but a recent report in The Nation Magazine reveals that little has changed since Obama took office.  Despite the president’s promise to cut funding to discredited HIV and pregnancy prevention programs, taxpayer dollars are still bankrolling anti-gay, anti-choice conservative religious groups.   Joining us to discuss the evidence that federal tax dollars are being used to support conservative, faith-based organizations that stigmatize young women, foster anti-gay sentiment and harm public health is Andy Kopsa, a freelance investigative reporter based in New York City and a contributor to The Nation who wrote the report.   She has also written for Al Jazeera, The Atlantic, Talking Points Memo, Ms. magazine, and many other publications. You can also follow Andy on twitter.
