Planned Parenthood receives more than $250 million of federal tax dollars under Title X. This money, your money, is used to fund marketing and media resources to encourage kids to have sex, have abortions and disregard authority, all in the name of “education.” One of the center’s web sites, teenwire.com, features inappropriate and offensive sexually oriented material (imagine what the animation “Behind the Fig Leaf” shows!”) targeted at junior and senior highers. The experts on the site appear to provide balanced information about sex, which I believe makes it even more dangerous for kids. Interestingly enough, this web site states that teens should consider the potentially long-lasting emotional impact of adoption (“Ask yourself: Can I accept my child living with someone else?”) but states that “long-term emotional reactions to having an abortion are relatively positive” and any claims of emotional trauma associated afterward are unfounded.
Three U.S. Congressmen, including Representative Lamborn, Colorado; King, Iowa; and Pitts, Pennsylvania, are preparing legislation calling once and for all for the defunding of Planned Parenthood. You can help by signing the ACLJ’s online petition and doing your part to promote this legislation.
