Neighbors Say Planned Parenthood’s Billboard Goes Too Far

(Memphis) A Planned Parenthood billboard has only been up a week in one South Memphis neighborhood, but some people there already want it to come down.

They say the billboard, which includes the message “Getting It On Is Free” and a picture of a condom, is too graphic.

“I was shocked. I was appalled that anyone would put up a picture of condom,” said Karen Wallace.

Karen Wallace works at a church nearby and has to drive by the billboard every day.

She said what is worse it’s right next to an elementary school cross walk.

“The graphic was not necessary the message was enough,” said Wallace.

A dad who saw the sign for the first time Thursday agreed and said it’s not something he wants his children to see.

“No! It ain’t nothing to send out to my kids,” said Rickey Munn.

The billboard is one of 12 Planned Parenthood has put in the county to prevent HIV and STD’s.

The billboards direct people to FreeCondomsMemphis.org.

If it was a picture of something sacred they could deface it with graffiti within a matter of hours.

I guess they revere and fear the condom.

“consequence” free is what they probably mean and it’s a lie

Rickey has the right to protect his kids from ads that are being sent out.

there can only be one reason you could put up such a thing, trying to destroy the Christian culture of this country.
because certainly more condom use means less abortion business. you’d have to believe they care so much about unborn babies that they don’t want children being born into a situation they are not wanted.

“Getting It On Is Free”

Yeah, until somebody gets an incurable venereal disease.

I don’t like the term “goes too far” because the message is wrong from the start. Teens, sex, and condoms are a recipe for pregnancy anyway due to misuse, dishonest use, and other factors. But there is the financial self-interest of Planned Parenthood’s abortion business.

PP the sneaky, lying tasbards.
They know condoms don’t always work and kids don’t always use them. Then when they get ‘punished’ with a pregnancy there’s always mother Sanger’s PP waiting to service them with a ‘profitable abortion’.
Warm red liquid = cool green paper.

For a moment I will put aside the moral implications and focus on “it is free”. This is one the lefts biggest problems. It is not free, trojan and whoever else do not manufacture condoms for free. Someone is paying, me, and I do not want to pay for your free condoms, idiots.

“Hmmm, this billboard isn’t up in Germantown but in a mostly black part of town.”

And the position near a school isn’t an accident or coincidence; blacks are the prime target of the US “zero population growth” policy. Their neighborhoods get the abortion mills as well...

yes, according to the U.S. political Messiah, young women are now to be told that preventing pregancy is no longer their responsibility to “insure”, the government has mandated that contraception is yours, for free, so go ahead and “get it on”
