Just what you want to hear: Planned Parenthood works around the clock to hook your kids on sex

posted at 9:35 pm on February 16, 2012 by Tina Korbe

Recently, American Life League came out with a six-minute exposé of Planned Parenthood that was so appalling that I would have had a hard time believing it was true had it not been about Planned Parenthood. The video included clips and images from PP educational materials — cartoons and the like — and the gist of the clips was that teens should learn to pleasure themselves and each other as soon as possible.

At the time, I was so disgusted that I couldn’t bring myself to post it. Now, I wish I had. Because of a copyright claim, YouTube pulled the video. No worries, though: You can read more about its contents here. As the smallest of samplings, here’s a screenshot:

The cartoon in the corner speaks for itself.

The point of the ALL’s video was simple: Planned Parenthood has a vested interest in hooking the next generation on sex. They’re in the abortion business. They depend upon unwanted pregnancies to stay in business. They know no unwanted pregnancy occurs without sex, so they encourage sex — albeit “safe” sex.

Over at BuzzFeed, BigRedH mocks the American Life League for its concern, writing, “Yes, this is both real and terrible. How dare Planned Parenthood try to educate people?” But pamphlets, coloring books, mascots, banners, outrageously-shaped lollipops … These aren’t the hallmarks of education. They’re the hallmarks of marketing. Fortunately for Planned Parenthood, the product they’re marketing is the easiest in the world to sell — and, when teens buy it and then have need of other products (a.k.a. contraceptives, STD testing, abortions), Planned Parenthood cashes in.

It sounds extreme, but, in the end, isn’t that the foundational idea of Planned Parenthood — that customers should be able to have sex without consequences, unless those “consequences” are “planned”?

If it all still sounds like a stretch to you, consider Planned Parenthood’s latest effort to meet teens where they are:

Whether they are texting high school students, lecturing in public schools, or coaxing students to their cringeworthy “Teen Information” website, Planned Parenthood relentlessly tries to appeal to the nation’s youth. Their most recent attempt is the newly-launched “HeyPP!” Twitter account. The page is meant to reach teenagers with sexual health information[.]

Sexual health information like, oh, how to have a conversation with your boyfriend about using a condom, how to know when the time is “right” to have sex or how to know if you’re a “cheater” (hint: it depends on your particular relationship’s rules).

The good news is, teens are unimpressed:

Planned Parenthood’s reputation is fading in popularity as quickly as their choice of words. (Another HeyPP tweet reads, “Sounds like a solid plan!” I’m still watching for the word “groovy.”) Planned Parenthood has been exposed for lyingfailing to report statutory rape, and not only concealing, but aiding in the sex trafficking of minors.

But it isn’t only Planned Parenthood that has a dwindling reputation among teens. Abortion as a whole is becoming increasingly unpopular with our nation’s youth. Unlike generations before, today’s teens are a part of what can be called the “refrigerator generation.” Unborn children are not an abstract “blob of tissue” to us, as we have grown up seeing ultrasound images of our unborn brothers, sisters, and cousins on our refrigerator doors. Combine this with an increase in pro-life activism, and it makes sense that more of our generation reports to be pro-life than pro-choice.

Abortion and Planned Parenthood are losing popularity among youth, and no excessive use of the words “like” and “totally” is going to change that.

It’s irritating — and a little insulting to the intelligence — that the “experts” at Planned Parenthood really think teens need help figuring out how to follow their natural urges.

But what angers me most about Planned Parenthood’s perpetual attempts to perpetuate knowledge about every last perversion that plagues the human race is that it robs marriage and sex of mystery and romance. If everybody’s business is everybody’s business, then nothing is private. How ironic that the “right to privacy” has made public in a huge way what was once between just two people.

Incidentally, what evidence we have still suggests it’s better when people keep it to themselves. Let’s please bring back the conversational taboo; surely sex was more exciting that way.

Update: A kind Twitter follower supplied me with a link to a still-working version of the video. “Enjoy” isn’t exactly the right word, so … be appalled:

Perhaps I’m thinking of another organization, but wasn’t there also a Planned Parenthood website that had videos of adults engaging in a lot of sexual innuendo. The thing is that the design of the website implied the actual target audience was either young teen or preteen. An age group certainly NOT old enough to watch videos with sexual inn. in them. Ed did a segment on this on The Ed Morrissey Show maybe in 2010 or 2009. This is eerily familiar to that.

Assuming your stats are correct, that’s probably because the vast majority of their services are offered free of charge.

Things like STI/STD screenings, Cancer screenings, womens health, contraception.. and what do they charge for that? Not much. Free, in most cases.

So your opposition to planned parenthood is what.. they don’t give away abortions free of charge?

Actually, Tina, no. Margaret Sanger was a racist of the highest order brought up during the time that people thought eugenics was a dandy idea. She decided to marry those two ideas so she created PP to convince black women not to have children.

See, if you commit genocide with concentration camps and mass murder, that gets you the world’s armies marching through your capitol city. If however your genocidal tendencies are disguised as something “nice,” Congress gives you money year after year.

Planned Parenthood has a vested interest in hooking the next generation on sex. They’re in the abortion business. They depend upon unwanted pregnancies to stay in business.

A few years ago, Nancy Alcorn (founder of Mercy Ministries) spoke at our church and shared what a former Planned Parenthood manager had personally told her. The now-repentant former PP manager said that it was PP’s common practice to intentionally give teenage girls the absolute lowest hormone level dosage of birth control pills. They knew that if the teenage girls did not take the pill at the same time of day, every single day, the hormone level in their body would not be sufficient to prevent ovulation. They did not tell the girls that, and PP knew that the overwhelming majority of teenage girls would not be self-disciplined enough to take the pill at the same time of day, every single day. PP knew that most of these girls would continue to ovulate, thinking they weren’t because they were on the pill, and when these girls were sexually active, they would likely conceive.

The now-repentant former PP manager went on to say that it was part of PP’s business model that young girls who were given the pill “for free” would end up coming back to PP for an average of THREE abortions before they reached the age of 21.

PP makes HUGE amounts of money from the abortion business, and they “cultivate” their market, preying on teenage girls. It’s absolutely sick. And we know from other exposés that PP will not report statuatory rape. It would appear that they actually encourage it, as it is good for their business and profits.

All of your ‘numerous scientific explanations that hold up under true scientific scrutiny’ are MAN’s conclusions of what MAN considers ‘acts of God’.
They’re not. Merely acts of our planet’s nature.

You start off with one celled organisms and amino acids.

You move onto multicelled evolution.

Which turns into small organisms.. which evolve into bigger organisms.

Ted Torgerson on February 16, 2012 at 10:15 PM

Actually, teens DO need help figuring out how to follow their natural urges. That’s the whole idea of sex education. We KNOW they’re going to do it. Better that they know how to do it, and do it right, and how to do it safely without getting a disease or getting pregnant.

That’s the WHOLE POINT.

And in case you couldn’t figure it out, they are trying to attract their audience so more kids get the information they WILL need.

This is exactly what’s wrong with a Rick Santorum candidacy. We get to hear about “abstinence only” programs again.

deadrody on February 16, 2012 at 9:52 PM

We don’t KNOW they’re going to do it. We ASSUME they will do it. That’s the problem. If we taught them how to NOT have sex until they are ready, then perhaps you wouldn’t have to worry about diseases and “accidental”* pregnancies. Not only does PP tell kids about the different ways to have sex, they ENCOURAGE it. Not only do they encourage it, but they spread the falsehood that sex can be safe. It can be safeR but there is always a risk. That latex won’t stop most viruses (HIV included).

Want proof? Even the FDA admits this:

Will a condom guarantee I won’t get a sexually transmitted disease?

No. There’s no absolute guarantee even when you use a condom. But most experts believe that the risk of getting HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases can be greatly reduced if a condom is used properly.

In other words, sex with condoms isn’t totally “safe sex,” but it is “less risky” sex.

Hmmm…sounds exactly like how they sell this whole sex-education thing, doesn’t it? Why, I always hear slogans like “Use a condom for possibly less risky sex!”

A college campus? If so, those are adults, not kids, and they have probably already had sex. If someone wants to give them condoms, I say more power to ‘em.

Among the most recent cohort of youth, it is estimated
that more than half of adolescent females and nearly two-thirds of adolescent males had intercourse by age 18…By age 20, about 3 in 4 females and 4 out of 5 males and females were sexually
experienced.

But I don’t want the ‘rats getting one dime in kickbacks.

Planned Parenthood Receives 15% Of Its Annual Revenue From Abortion Services. According to data from the most recent Planned Parenthood Annual Report:

•Abortion accounted for 3 percent of total services (approximately 328,308 of 10,943,609 services)
•At an average cost of $500, total revenue from abortion services was approximately $164,154,000
•Revenue from abortion services was less than 15 percent of the total annual revenue, which was $1,100,800,000 [Planned Parenthood Annual Report 2008-2009, accessed 2/17/11]

Is it possible that Tina didn’t know about sex until Planned Parenthood corrupted her high school teachers? None of my friends learned about sex from Planned Parenthood but from the school or smuggled porn- and I can tell you that it didn’t deliver a message about the dangers of unprotected sex or accidental childbirth.

Had Bristol Palin been given better sex education, perhaps she would be attending college today. For the average pregnant teenager who can’t count on a celebrity parent to foot her bills or write and sell a fascinating memoir, pregnancy out of wedlock creates huge obstacles in the pursuit of a normal, middle class lifestyle.
