Face Painting, Magic Shows and Birth Control: Planned Parenthood Infiltrates Children’s Event

VALLEJO, California (28 July 2008) – In its latest venture in marketing sex to children, Planned Parenthood, the nation's largest abortion chain, will pass out birth control and materials about sexually transmitted disease at "Vallejo Celebrates Youth," a children's health and wellness event in Vallejo, California Aug. 2.

The event, sponsored by the Greater Vallejo Recreational District, will feature face painting; a magic show; and booths on childhood obesity, literacy, oral hygiene, second-hand smoke and birth control.

"By its presence at this event, Planned Parenthood is providing even more evidence that it is out to get your kids," said Marie Hahnenberg, a researcher with American Life League. "Last year, it received over $356 million in clinic income, and now it's out to make even more money by getting kids hooked on sex so it can get more customers – through its pornographic teen web sites, passing out sex-saturated reading materials and giving condoms to elementary students."

Kaiser Permanente, a health care group known for its support of Planned Parenthood's radical agenda, will also participate in this event – scheduled from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Children's Wonderland playground in Vallejo.

"We encourage people across the country, especially those in the Vallejo area, to call Shane McAffee at the Greater Vallejo Recreation District at 707-648-4603 or e-mail him at

and demand he reverse his decision to allow Planned Parenthood's participation in this children's event," Hahnenberg said.
