Taxpayers, Why Should You Be Forced to Fund ‘Dangerous’ Sex Ed?
Planned Parenthood, an organization that is already controversial for using taxpayer funds for abortion, is receiving taxpayer funding for teen sex education under Obamacare.
If that makes you shudder, your instincts are pretty solid.
The Daily Signal has the scoop on an undercover investigation by Live Action, which reveals the dangerous nature of Planned Parenthood’s s0-called sex education for teens:
The undercover video consists of footage with counselors as well as Planned Parenthood’s own promotional materials. Those materials include a Planned Parenthood-sponsored series called “A Naked Notion” that features BDSM—a practice that involves sexual partners beating, lashing, or otherwise inflicting pain on each other—as the topic for one of its segments.
The new video spearheads Live Action’s nationwide campaign to spread awareness of Planned Parenthood’s track record: “The motto at Planned Parenthood seems to be ‘sex with no strings attached.’ Teens are told they can have sex whenever, however, with whomever, as long as it’s contracepted.”
Live Action is a non-partisan, non-profit organization “dedicated to building a culture of life and ending abortion.” Now, their undercover investigative journalism has revealed more of the scandalous practices of the taxpayer-funded, inaptly named Planned Parenthood.
Live Action President Lila Rose remarked, “Whether people are liberal or conservative, or even whether they’re pro-life or pro-choice, I think we’re going to see a lot of common ground in the outrage over what we’re about to show people.”
Rose said Live Action’s undercover investigation should serve as a “wake-up call to America’s parents.”
It should also serve as a wake-up call to our elected officials, who are directly responsible for voting to appropriate taxpayer funds to Planned Parenthood. The organization receives more than $500 million in taxpayer funds annually.
It should be getting zero taxpayer dollars. As Heritage policy analyst Sarah Torre has argued “policymakers would do well to end taxpayer support for Planned Parenthood and close the seams in the patchwork of existing domestic federal funding prohibitions by making them permanent.”
