"Planned Parenthood continues to deluge the public with its array of over-sexed novelty items," said Jim Sedlak, vice president of American Life League.

The organization then goes on to encourage teenagers to "make a beautiful creation out of condoms, find out all the facts on using condoms correctly, and get a free gift!"

"What happened to teaching teens responsibility and morals at the same time?" asked Sedlak.
