Planned Parenthood Tears at Catholicism

The folks at Planned Parenthood are at it again. 

The International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) has released a new report on sex education.  Wait do you hear what they have to say.
IPPF uses the terms young people, youth and adolescents interchangeably to refer to people who are between 10 and 24.
In other words, elementary school kids should be treated the same as college graduate students when it comes to sex education.  Any word on the right of parents to choose how best to educate their children?  None that I can see.

It gets better than that though.  Hat tip to the Catholic League.
The entire program is based on a faulty assumption. IPPF says that “The taboo on youth sexuality is one of the key forces driving the AIDS epidemic and high rates of teenage pregnancy and maternal mortality.” Nonsense. In the 1950s, there was no sex education in the schools, the pill was not commercially available and AIDS didn’t exist. Yet the out-of-wedlock birth rate was comparatively miniscule and sexually transmitted diseases were relatively rare. All because of taboos.
According to IPPF, it’s those Catholics—who are indistinguishable from radical Islamists—who are the problem. “Fundamentalist and other religious groups—the Catholic Church and madrasas (Islamic schools) for example—have imposed tremendous barriers that prevent young people, particularly, from obtaining information and services related to sex and reproduction.”
So, let me see if I get this straight; a kid who goes to a parochial school and learns about responsible sexual behavior (such as chastity before marriage) are analogous to Imam Amir's madrasa students who are denied any sort of sex education and are taught that homosexuals are to be put to death?  I fail to see the similarity.

I bring this up not because it's new, but because it's just another example of the extent that the culture of death is going to achieve its aims.  Planned Parenthood and other abortion chains around the world have been arguing for "youth sexual rights" for years.  Why, do you ask?  The reason is simple: money.  More people having sex means more unintended pregnancies (ever notice it's the "sexually liberated" types that have the highest rates of illegitimacy, abortion and STDs?), and more unintended pregnancies means more desperate women coming into their abortuaries, which means more cash for the chains.

Another reason why Catholics and others must stand loud and proud for the virtue of chastity.  Lives depend on it.

You can read the report straight from the horse's mouth here.
