In another vignette, a teenage girl appears to drop her pants – again in public – exposing her privates in front of two other girls and the same African-American male. She then asks them, “Do you see anything down there?” referencing potential evidence of sexually transmitted disease. Of course, based on her cavalier sexual attitude and tart immodesty (or is that immodest tart?) the odds strongly favor the likelihood that she does, in fact, have something “down there.”
So why does Planned Parenthood’s latest vulgar foray into the corruption of America’s youth concern you? Simple – you’re paying for it. Consider the following information compiled by Liberty Counsel:
Planned Parenthood has been receiving federal funding under the Title X Family Planning Program, enacted in 1970 as Title X of the Public Health Services Act. Section 1008 of the Act, as amended, stipulates that “None of the funds appropriated under this title shall be used in programs where abortion is a method of family planning,” yet Planned Parenthood is nevertheless receiving funds under this federal program.
During the 2006-2007 fiscal year, Planned Parenthood received a total of $336.7 million from government grants and contracts (that’s your taxpayer dollars). In 2008, $300 million was given to family planning clinics, under the Title X program. These funds were used to service over five million people, a third of which received “care” from a Planned Parenthood clinic.
On October 27, 2007, a coalition of leaders from dozens of conservative groups, including Liberty Counsel, Concerned Women for America, Focus on the Family, the American Family Association and more, signed a joint letter calling for the defunding of Planned Parenthood, after revelations of the abortion giant’s alleged systematic violation of Kansas state law came to light. Senator David Vitter (R-LA) and Representative Mike Pence (R-IN) have both introduced legislation that would prevent Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers from receiving taxpayer dollars in the future.
While commenting on Planned Parenthood’s latest abuse of taxpayer dollars, Attorney Mathew Staver, founder and chairman of Liberty Counsel, stated, “Planned Parenthood has now given the federal government yet another reason to stop funding this racist, eugenic, and immoral organization.
“Why should hardworking Americans pay to support Planned Parenthood’s profiteering sex agenda, that encourages teenage sex on the one hand and then profits by aborting the consequences of such promiscuity on the other hand? Planned Parenthood’s Web site is offensive and, frankly, shocks the conscience. It is insane that we allow our tax dollars to fund such an irresponsible and destructive organization. We must stop funding Planned Parenthood and we must stop now!”
True, indeed. Beyond its stated mission to cleanse the world of “human beings who never should have been born at all,” Planned Parenthood’s primary purpose is to promote promiscuity among youth in order to line its pockets, plain and simple. There’s a clear conflict of interest here. When kids engage in risky sexual behaviors, Planned Parenthood wins. Why else would it be promoting casual sex, homosexuality and group sex?
It’s like the tobacco industry showing kids how fun and exciting it is to smoke cigarettes, and then telling them, with a wink, “But always smoke safely.” We wouldn’t allow Joe Camel access to our kids on the taxpayer dime; neither should we give Margret “The Reaper” Sanger and her Planned Parenthood brood such taxpayer-funded access.
