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.”
According to Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) 5% the debate about abortion is over. It was over in 1973, she suggested on the Senate floor Tuesday, when seven black-robed Supreme Court justices invented a constitutional right to abortion-on-demand in the United States in the case of Roe v. Wade.
It’s appropriations season in Congress which means we’ll soon be discussing whether taxpayers should be funding Planned Parenthood. In what may be a side story to that debate, news broke Monday that defenders of the organization are trying (in same cases successfully) to influence search engine results to obscure pro-life alternatives to Planned Parenthood:
NARAL Pro-Choice America wants to protect a woman’s right to choose. They just don’t want women to know about all the options available to them. In the name of “choice,” NARAL Pro-Choice America has lobbied Google to take down ads on its site for crisis pregnancy centers …
There are approximately 2,200 crisis pregnancy centers in the United States according to Students for Life of America. Unlike abortion giant Planned Parenthood, the centers do not charge for any of their services. More than 90 percent of total funding for the crisis pregnancy centers is from private, non-governmental sources. The left has decried the government’s minor role in funding these centers, while dismissing, or celebrating, the fact that 45 percent of Planned Parenthood’s revenue in 2013 — $540.6 million — came in the form of taxpayer-funded government health services grants.

A very sad phenomenon exists today, which is that the left conflates ‘women’s rights’ with killing unborn children in the womb. The two are in fact mutually exclusive, because there are no other rights without the right to life. That is true for unborn baby girls and unborn baby boys.
Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) 11%, a leftist poster-child, wished Roe v. Wade a happy 41st “birthday” today because of her “commitment to protecting women’s rights.” Meanwhile, women and men, young and old, marched on the National Mall toward the Supreme Court to defend life.
