This is probably one of the most ridiculous things I’ve seen in a while, but according to Conservative group, the American Life League, Planned Parenthood is trying to get kids hooked on sex.

While I couldn’t help laughing at this video, the underlying theme–that Planned Parenthood is a dangerous organization that needs to be stopped–seems to be on the minds of our Republican elected officials.
Since sweeping to state and federal office in the 2010 midterm elections, Republicans have led efforts to not only defund Planned Parenthood, but also limit the reproductive rights of women.
Just yesterday, Virginia’s mostly-Republican state house passed an obtrusive new law that requires women seeking an abortion to have a probe unnecessarily inserted into their vagina before being granted the procedure (and they cannot opt out), and today, Congress is holding a debate about birth control.
So while this video is literally one of the funniest things I’ve seen in a while, the fight against limiting women’s rights to not only abortion, but now birth control (which, also helps men), is one we can’t take lightly.
What do you think of this video?
