How to Fix It: Pink-Slip the God Squad

“Bush poured enormous amounts of federal money into abstinence-only sex education, so-called ‘crisis pregnancy centers’ that propagandize women against abortion, and so on.

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn’t fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
