Planned Parenthood: moms are not welcome -- I

By Diogenes (articles ) | Dec 05, 2003

Michelle Malkin reports on Planned Parenthood's online offering to teenagers:

Called "Teenwire.com," the Planned Parenthood site is chock-full of colorful graphics, hip jargon, voluminous health advice, and lots of exclamation points.

Surely the "planning" element in Planned Parenthood implies an objective, rational, mutually respectful and on-going deliberation of the issues that is open to all, right?

The Teenwire.com site issues a stern note to parents who might be trying to monitor what kind of sex-education propaganda their kids are reading. Planned Parenthood lectures mothers and fathers that "this website is for teens. This is their place. Take a look around the site if you like, but please do not register on the site."

Translation: We're the experts. You are meddling parents. Bug off and butt out.

I think I can grasp PP's take on the problem: anyone so irresponsible as to bring children into the world in the first place can hardly be trusted to instruct them in sexuality. Is it any wonder why breeders should be escorted off the premises?
