From the Washington Post's the Trail:

Sarah Palin, who has also voiced her opposition to "explicit sex ed," this past April used her line-item veto to slash 20 percent of funding for Covenant House, which runs a state program that gives teen mothers skills training and a place to live. (You know, other than in the harsh glare of the media.)
