• A federal district court struck down those provisions of the Adolescent Family Life Act that permitted religious organizations to use federal funds for the counseling and teaching of adolescents on matters related to teenage pregnancy. Such provisions had a legitimate secular purpose, concluded the court, but had a primary effect of advancing religion and accordingly violated the first amendment's nonestablishment of religion clause. Kendrick v. Bowen, 657 F. Supp. 1547 (D.D.C. 1987).
