Planned Parenthood wants to work with churches and clergy in two Indiana cities to form a faith-based program on sexual education. The group hopes to begin the program in Fort Wayne and Indianapolis, cities chosen because the teen birth rates are higher than the national average. "We believe a faith-based setting is ideal for sexuality education programming since religious values can provide a solid foundation for these programs to be built upon," Kathleen Baldwin, vice president for education and training for Planned Parenthood of Greater Indiana. The program will be financed by a $50,000 grant from the Nina Mason Pulliam Charitable Trust and a $48,000 grant from the Florida-based Engelberg Foundation. No churches have yet agreed to participate.
