The largest grass-roots Catholic pro-life group in the nation is warning of a perfect storm of circumstances that could set up Planned Parenthood as a quasi-governmental entity with the power to establish as law its declaration of a universal right to tax-paid abortions and autonomous rights to sexual “pleasure” for children.
The warning is being issued by the American Life League, which has been trying to protect life from the moment of creation to natural death since its founding in 1979.
The organization now is warning about a new International Planned Parenthood Federation document called “Sexual Rights: An International Planned Parenthood Federation Declaration,” detailed by ALL’s Michael Hichborn as containing those rights, as well as provisions for child predators to conceal past criminal sexual histories.
The declaration could take on significant new meaning as the nation debates the Obama administration’s proabortion, pro-Planned-Parenthood health agenda, according to ALL.
“The declaration is completely consistent with Planned Parenthood’s record of sexualizing children,” stated Rita Diller, the chief of ALL’s Stop Planned Parenthood project. “But what is historic about this is for the first time Planned Parenthood has completely divorced sexual rights from reproductive rights.
“Planned Parenthood has been outed – they are about uninhibited sex for everyone – including children,” she said.
She explained that the health-care takeover being assembled now in Congress at Obama’s request also “could grant Planned Parenthood a quasi-government position.”
“If that happens, Planned Parenthood could use its national position to implement this International Planned Parenthood Federation policy,” she said.
The present incarnation of America’s Healthy Future Act creates a new program called the National Teen Pregnancy Prevention Resource Center, ALL noted. The provision states this program will be granted to “a nationally recognized, nonpartisan, nonprofit organization” that “has demonstrated experience working with and providing assistance to a broad range of individuals and entities to reduce teen pregnancy,” and “is research-based and has comprehensive knowledge and data about teen-pregnancy prevention strategies.”
“It seems the wording was framed with Planned Parenthood in mind,” Diller continued. “If this provision remains, and Planned Parenthood is granted control of that program, this ‘Declaration of Debauchery’ [established by Planned Parenthood] could well be the cornerstone for prohibiting restrictions on the sexual activity of children.”
Diller called the provision “dangerous” and noted Planned Parenthood is under investigation for tax fraud and concealing child rape at some locations, but an expanded status as a quasi-governmental organization would give it “even more influence over our kids.”
The federal plan also calles for a “training” program that gives at least $250,000 to each state to “educate” adolescents on “both abstinence and contraception for the prevention of pregnancy and STDs,” the league said.
