A pro-life group is protesting Planned Parenthood’s sale of a line of “condom key chains’ that include a takeoff on Michelangelo’s famous Sistine Chapel image in which the hand of God gives a condom to Adam.
The abortion provider is in a “never-ending quest to sexualize everything in our culture,” said Jim Sedlak, executive director of American Life League’s STOPP International.
Some of the 28 versions of the key chain, sold by Planned Parenthood of Connecticut, are “blasphemous,” asserted Sedlak, who urges Americans to contact local schools and churches and insist “that the promiscuity promoters at Planned Parenthood not be allowed anywhere near our children.”
Access to the page offering the items has been blocked since STOPP International publicized it.
Sedlak also wants “all government officials to stop taxpayer money from going to this organization that makes a habit of blaspheming God.”
Another key chain, he points out, has a caricature of a baby crying loudly, accompanied by the Planned Parenthood slogan, “Condoms are cheaper than diapers.”
Also, series of three key chains “offends all patriotic Americans,” he said.
One is a takeoff on the “Uncle Sam Wants You” poster from World War II, replacing Uncle Sam with a condom. The second has an American flag with the stars in the field of blue replaced with the words, “Wear with Pride.” The third is a picture of the Statue of Liberty holding a condom instead of a torch.
Another key chain says, “Earth and condoms, we can’t live without them.”
Planned Parenthood also has been accused of sacrilege for its sale of “Choice on Earth” Christmas cards, which play on a familiar biblical text.
