Supporters of Planned Parenthood are quick to point out that abortions aren’t all that PP does.
And although abortions do make up 98% of the “services” PP offers to pregnant women, it is true that they’re not the only thing they do.
Among other things, they also link approvingly from their Facebook page to essays in newspapers like the New York Times that recommend that guys get over their natural inhibitions about having premarital sex by thinking about women not as people, but as animals.
Last week in the NYT, college student Andrew Limbong wrote about how he wanted to have sex with his girlfriend, but the influence of his mother and his Christian upbringing was holding him back. Rather than listen to his conscience, he sought the advice of a friend:
His advice? Breathe a lot, do some push-ups and don’t really think about it. “Stop thinking about her as a person,” he told me. “People are animals, and having sex is a natural thing that animals do all the time.”
Oh, and did I mention that the essay opens with Limbong and his girlfriend going to a pharmacy to get the morning-after pill?
Planned Parenthood’s analysis:
Planned Parenthood pretty much tells us everything we need to know about them when they give the message that thinking about women as animals and not as people is a way of “staying true to one’s self” and “moving forward when you’re ready”.
