So begins an article on the website of Planned Parenthood of Delaware promoting its Obamacare funded “sexuality education training institute,” purportedly designed “to teach young people about abstinence and contraception.” But where is the abstinence education in this scenario? The only abstinence encouraged by Planned Parenthood is abstaining from “unprotected” sex. Add a few steroids and a condom and you have the green light for sex for eleven-year-old children—without regard to morality, health consequences, or other impacts upon the child.
At a very tender age, this child has already been taught that babies are her enemy and that sex is fine as long as condoms and contraceptives are employed.
On February 6, we published an article entitled “Babies as enemies: Planned Parenthood’s sterile sexuality dehumanizes preborn.” That article tracks the words of a former atheist who grew up with the same type of sex education and says that she got the message loud and clear:
The message I’d heard loud and clear was that the purpose of sex was for pleasure and bonding, that its potential for creating life was purely tangential, almost to the point of being forgotten about altogether. This mindset laid the foundation of my views on abortion. Because I saw sex as being closed to the possibility to life by default, I thought of pregnancies that weren’t planned as akin to being struck by lightning while walking down the street: Something totally unpredictable, undeserved, that happened to people living normal lives.
Babies had become the enemy because of their tendencies to pop up out of the blue and ruin everything; and just as societies are tempted to dehumanize the fellow human beings who are on the other side of the lines in wartime, so had I, and we as a society, dehumanized the enemy of sex.
