Planned Parenthood Condom TV Ad Mocks Religion, Angels
SAN FRANCISCO, April 17, 2007 ( –

Planned Parenthood Golden Gate (PPGG) has just released a “Safe is Sexy” television ad that features a young couple being interrupted from having unprotected sex by their Guardian Angels. The ad can be seen here:

The thirty second spot features a hip, young couple that is saved from engaging in unprotected sex by divine intervention. The ad is aimed at youth ages 18-24 and will air throughout the next ten weeks on MTV, VH1 and FX. Said the Planned Parenthood chaplain….

“I love the fact that this ad challenges popular conceptions of religion and sexuality,” said Lisa Sargent, Chaplain at Planned Parenthood Golden Gate. “I think it will really break through the clutter and get people thinking about sexual responsibility as part of their larger value system, which may be religiously influenced.”

Can you say “oxymoron”? Or maybe skip the “oxy”…
Catholic League president Bill Donohue commented on this ad saying,

“Given the moral hollowness of Planned Parenthood, it is not surprising to learn that it is now in the business of hijacking religious imagery to pander its sex-without-consequences message.

Donohue added: “Ironically, while PPGG is ripping off Guardian Angels, the California chapter of Planned Parenthood is lobbying to defeat the ‘Missing Angels Act.‘”
The bill, which is being pushed by women who have experienced stillbirth, would require a certificate of birth when this occurs. Currently, all states are required to issue a death certificate for a stillbirth; they also require the family to bury or cremate the baby.
Joanne Cacciatore, who heads the Missing Angels Foundation, has said, ‘How in the world do states ethically justify telling someone they have to bury someone who they are not willing to say existed?’
Dawn Eden of the New York Daily News, said “Planned Parenthood has long had a relationship of sorts with the Angel of Death; it invites him into its clinics a quarter-million times a year.”
As you can see in the image below from Planned Parenthood Golden Gate‘s 2005 annual report, 53% of the revenue taken in by that chapter of Planned Parenthood‘s national organization came from “government fees and contracts.” Even assuming those dollars went directly to services, that frees up donor money for making porny, Christian-bashing condom sales pitches for underage teens.
The Planned Parenthood Federation of America has received over a half-billiion in taxpayer funds in the past two years alone. That money is fungible; it enables the organization to spend more money on public-relations efforts like “A Superhero for Choice,” as well as on abortions.
