Don’t Trust Planned Parenthood

— Posted by John (October 9, 2007 at 4:00 pm)

In my last post, I wrote about Planned Parenthood’s condescending attitude toward pro-life teenagers.

Last week, I wrote about Planned Parenthood/Chicago Area’s connection with the Illinois Caucus for Adolescent Health (ICAH), a group that has featured pornographers and strippers at their annual fundraiser the past two years.

In that post, I mentioned that PP/CA and ICAH have formed a a coalition whose goal is to strip all funding of abstinence education for Illinois schools and require them to use so-called comprehensive sex education programs instead.

Yet Planned Parenthood calls itself a “trusted health care provider”, and says it “has always made the health and safety of teens one of its top priorities” by, for example, providing contraception to teens and sponsoring and promoting “comprehensive” sex education programs.

Trusted health care provider, health and safety of teens, top priorities…

So they say.

On Wednesday, October 17th, I’ll be giving a talk on the physical, emotional, and spiritual dangers of “comprehensive” sex education programs. The title of my talk is, simply: Don’t Trust Planned Parenthood.

It will be held at St. Peter’s Church in Geneva, IL, 1891 Kaneville Road (see map here) at 7:00pm.

My talk is open to high school age students.

At the same time, and at the same church, Patricia Bainbridge, the Respect Life Office Director for the Rockford Diocese, will be giving a talk on Planned Parenthood to adults.

A flyer with more information on the talks is available here [PDF].

Come if you can!

    Hi John,

    I would like to hear your talk next Wednesday, but I am teaching CCD (8th Gr. Confirmation class) that night. If you could have another one of these informative talks for teenagers somewhere in the Naperville area, please let me know. Thank you and God bless,

    I love Planned Parenthood and donate quite a bit of money to them on a regular basis. NARAL too.

    Okay.

    Does anyone know where I can find pro-life organizations and events in my area? I’m hoping to attend one sometime soon but don’t know where I should be looking.

    Molly,

    My first suggestion is to check out this page from the site of our parent organization, the Pro-Life Action League. It offers a few tips for making contact with other pro-lifers in your area.

    You may also want to check out this page, which lists the locations for the 89 cities nationwide that are currently hosting 40 Days for Life vigils.

    Thanks. I looked at the 40 Days for Life website. I want to go to the Youth for Truth rally this Saturday, but my mom is going to take some convincing. She likes to know about things like this at least a month in advance, and it’s in five days. The fact that it will take forty minutes to drive over there won’t help much in convincing her…
