A Planned Parenthood counselor was caught on video telling someone she thinks is 15 that if she’s too young to buy sex toys across the street, she could “get a horse whip” instead.
Pro-life group Live Action captured the taxpayer-financed guidance on camera at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Eden Prairie, Minn., after having an undercover investigator pose as a teenage girl. The “teen” sought advice about “BDSM”— a practice in which sexual partners beat, lash, or otherwise inflict pain on each other.
“Anything within the sexual world is normal as long as it’s consensual,” the Planned Parenthood sex-education counselor tells the investigator she thinks is a 15-year-old client.
After the counselor recommends two specific boutiques where the client could buy “sex toys” and “sex props,” the client asks if she is old enough to shop there.
The counselor responds:
Hmm. That’s a good question. I don’t know the answer to that.
The undercover video is the fourth episode in Live Action’s nationwide campaign, “SEX-ED: Dangerous Sex Advice for Kids,” which exposes the unusual sex-ed advice Planned Parenthood provides with money from U.S. taxpayers. Similar counseling was offered by staffers in Colorado, Indiana, and Oregon.
In the video, the Planned Parenthood staffer also suggests her 15-year-old client read the erotic novel “50 Shades of Grey”:
There are lots of things that happen in ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ that border on – um, I wouldn’t say ‘abuse,’ because it’s consensual, but definitely extreme.
But “if it’s consensual,” the counselor adds, “again, completely normal.”
Other “patients,” the counselor says, “sometimes come in with rope burns or … markings on their breasts from, like, clamps.”
Planned Parenthood receives more than $500 million annually from taxpayers, amounting to almost half of the organization’s budget.
Under the Personal Responsibility Education Program, a sex education initiative financed under Obamacare, Planned Parenthood gets additional taxpayer funding.
A statement on Planned Parenthood’s website says the organization “is working with the federal and state governments to ensure access to sex education programs that give young people the reliable, accurate information they need to make responsible decisions and stay healthy.”
Live Action’s president, Lila Rose, said the latest video “lays bare Planned Parenthood’s sexual ethos, even for kids: abusive, demeaning, and violent sexual behavior is ‘normal’ and ‘OK’ as long as the recipient believes that she has consented to it.”
Live Action has asked lawmakers to defund Planned Parenthood and urges superintendents nationwide to expel Planned Parenthood from their schools.
Rose says in a release:
What else could an underage girl agree to that Planned Parenthood would call ‘completely normal?’ Cuts? Broken bones? Is child sexual abuse ‘completely normal’ if the girl thinks she wants it?
