Pro-Life Congressmen Want Planned Parenthood De-Funded Over Web Site Porn

Washington, DC ( — Pro-life members of Congress say the federal government should stop funding Planned Parenthood through national family programs because its teen-oriented web site features pornography. Planned Parenthood’s online venture TeenWire features content so graphic that some Internet filters are preventing access to it.

The site is supposed to be a compendium of “medically accurate” information for teenagers on sexual issues.

Though Planned Parenthood is careful to say the information is intended for people 18 years and older, the web site is clearly geared to teens.

The web site’s “advice columnists” tell kids viewing the web site that many people use pornography as part of sex play.” A columnist tells one viewer that viewing pornography won’t lead to getting bad grades in school.

OK, this last paragraph really gets me worked up. I don’t know if pornography will cause bad grades or not. I don’t care if kids who view it get better grades. Which is something I highly doubt, but I digress. It will give kids a bad sense of what sex is. If they don’t already have a bad sense of it anyways. In fact, many adults are messed up about sex. I have never watched such stupid crap. But it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know what is in porn. Boys will think that the nasty asty way girls act in these “movies” is the way that girls are supposed to be and expect this from girls. Girls will think this is the way they are supposed to act and that if they don’t act this way they won’t get a prom date or whatever. It will have a lasting effect on them, even into adulthood.

The web site encourages kids to play sexual games or explore bisexuality and it gives teens advice on how to avoid telling their parents about a possible abortion.

The first part is bad enough, but teaching children how to be sneaky about anything, especially on possibly ending the life of a human being is absolutely horrendous.

Leading pro-life groups agreed and say Planned Parenthood doesn’t need one-third of its income coming from the federal government. [more here]

My sentiments exactly.
