Sometimes the truth is right out in the open for all to see. We often wonder if parents realize Planned Parenthood's website is a guide for teenagers to be sexually active without getting caught by providing the means to avoid or fix the consequences.
It is important teens have a general knowledge about sex, but Planned Parenthood encourages sex, regardless of age or what parents think. They make millions from birth control products, and if birth control fails there's the major money maker ... abortion.
Planned Parenthood’s goal is to reach out to our young people … those who are vulnerable and impressionable, which is why we felt it important to highlight just a few excerpts. Note: Words that are underlined in the excerpts are not underlined on the website. It's just to draw attention to a specific word or phrase.
In the TEEN SECTION, there is a segment on sex and nowhere does it address age when considering if a teen is ready for sex. In fact, here is how they handle the topic.
How do I know when I’m ready?
“Only you can know the answer to that question. Deciding when to have sex for the first time is a big deal, and it can be a tough decision. It's really helpful to talk it out with someone you trust — a parent, a friend, a health care provider, or someone else who cares about you.
Teenagers are not mature enough to make informed decisions regarding sex. Yes, they mentioned discussing it with parents, but also with friends (other teenagers that are just as vulnerable and impressionable?) and “someone else who cares about you,”(Who would that be … the potential partner?). Instead of stressing the importance of parental or guardian involvement, they leave the options wide open – which to a teenager leads to a choice of who will give them the answer they want to hear.
“And a healthy sex life shouldn't be stressful. We usually make better decisions when we think through all the good things and bad things. A great sex life is one that fits in with everything you're about…”
Teenagers and healthy sex-life should not even be in the same sentence. Good things and bad things? Teenagers don’t think things through….it’s not in their make-up. Look back during your own teenage years….did you? What about “everything you’re about?” Were you fully aware of who you were at that age? It’s highly doubtful.
“Sex can be a really great thing for a lot of people, but it can also have consequences. Sex can lead to pregnancy and spread STDs, so it’s important to know how to protect yourself.”
“A lot of people.” Yep, everyone does it, so it’s okay. It doesn’t matter what age, now does it? They forgot to add …. not to worry if you end up pregnant or get an STD, head to your local clinic…we’ll take care of it without anyone knowing.
“Abstinence and outercourse have special advantages for teens and younger people.” Abstinence is a great way to avoid the risks that come with sex – like pregnancy and STDs – until you’re ready to prevent and/or handle them.
Teens and younger people … how much younger? Abstinence is a great way? (But not the only one way for teens and younger people.) And again, until you’re ready? How does a teenager or younger person know?
“Many couples want to be sexual with each other without having vaginal sex and/or risking pregnancy.” “…This way (outercourse), the sperm cells in semen can’t get to an egg and cause pregnancy. Some outercourse examples include kissing, massage, masturbating, dry humping (grinding), and talking about your fantasies. People may also choose to have oral sex and/or anal sex. Oral sex won’t lead to pregnancy, and anal sex doesn’t cause pregnancy either…” “But both anal and oral sex can spread STDs, so use a condom during oral sex and anal sex.”
Keep in mind folks, young people are reading this …. look at your ten, eleven, twelve or thirteen year-old child. Is this something you want them to know?
Then there is this:
On virginity: "Stressing about whether you’re a virgin is way less (WHAT?) important than how you feel about your sexual experiences.” AND “When you lose (ten,eleven, twelve) your virginity isn’t as big a deal as making sure you and your partner are ready for sex.”
On consent: “The age of sexual consent is how old a person needs to be to be considered legally capable of consenting to sex. Adults who have sex with someone younger than the age of consent face jail time and being registered as a sex offender. So, minors don’t face consequences if they have sex with another minor?
Do you want your tax dollars spent on an organization that tells teenagers they know better than their parents or guardians as to what's best for them? Do you want your tax dollars spent on an organization that sells teen sex as a normal and acceptable activity? Do you want an organization that promotes teen (and younger) sex to have access to your children at elementary and middle schools?
