What's Planned Parenthood's Real Agenda?

Posted: Feb 08, 2010 3:19 PM
Ed Barnes at Fox News reports on Planned Parenthood -- and its wish to teach children as young as 10 about the pleasures of sex.

Like President Obama often does, one of Planned Parenthood's favorite techniques is to set up a false dichotomy: In its members' world, either "religious" people will keep children ignorant of sex and teach them it's sinful, or else even the youngest children must be taught everything about sex and treated as "sexual beings" at ever-earlier ages.

How ridiculous.  Normal, sensible people know that it's entirely possible to teach the facts about sex, but also to make it clear that, though wonderful at the righ time with the right person, sex is only something only for those mature enough to handle its potential consequences (namely, those in a committed relationship, preferably marriage).

The whole idea of "sexualizing" children -- as Planned Parenthood does by advocating that they be treated as "sexual beings" -- does nothing to protect their bodies, hearts and spirits.  Quite the opposite, in fact.  But it does create a market for the struggling business of Planned Parenthood -- contraception and abortion.

Coincidence?  You decide.
