This sounds like it's supposed to be a debate over educating girls in developing countries, but that is misleading. The fundamental debate of this legislation is over the effectiveness and justification of foreign aid. Therefore I say no because foreign aid fails on both of these items. Foreign aid to any country inherently involves the theft of money from citizens of this country. We should not be sending any money to any country. It's welfare on an international level and breeds dependence. I wish them all the best, I really do, and individuals are more than welcome to send their own funds voluntarily, but foreign aid is morally wrong, no matter how noble the intended recipient cause may be. It still requires forced participation and funding, which is immoral. Besides, if you want to find effective ways of reducing poverty in the developing world, foreign aid is clearly not the way to go. Check out the documentary Poverty, Inc. We're not doing the target people any good by flooding them with American dollars that displace local investment and keep local enterprise from flourishing, and we're not doing right by our own citizens by forcing their participation in this ineffective practice. I cannot help but conclude that foreign aid is not an appropriate, justifiable, or effective long-term solution to issues of poverty.
