New ad promotes recreational sex

American Life League slammed Planned Parenthood Golden Gate’s latest ad campaign, describing their new “safe sex” ad as a promotion tool for new abortions and took strong exception to the fact that the campaign was paid for with taxpayer dollars.

“Planned Parenthood says it promotes sexual health, but in reality, it’s just promoting recreational sex,” said American Life League vice president Jim Sedlak. Planned Parenthood Golden Gate recently released the ad campaign to be aired on MTV, VH-1 and Comedy Central. The campaign is centered on Planned Parenthood Golden Gate’s so-called Mile High Club.

Sedlak explained, “Planned Parenthood makes one third of its income by providing contraceptives and abortions.  It promotes recreational sex to keep demand for their business high.”

The Mile High Club is a slang term used to describe people who engage in “safer sex” aboard an airplane at least one mile above the earth’s surface. “Planned Parenthood calls this humor; we call it vulgar.”

“By linking itself to the Mile High Club, Planned Parenthood’s message is loud and clear,” said Sedlak. “It is telling kids in the 18-24 age bracket to ‘Have sex! It’s fun.’ In reality, Planned Parenthood is just trolling for more business.”

"What most people probably do not know is that ads such as these are paid for with taxpayer money,” said Sedlak. “The federal government gives at least $305 million annually to Planned Parenthood. This must end. American Life League is continuing its call to American taxpayers to sign the online petition at <a href="" target="_blank"></a> and contact state and federal elected officials to cut Planned Parenthood off from our wallets!”
