Planned Parenthood celebrates ‘National Masturbation Month’
Life Site News ^ | May 21, 2012 | KAthLEEN GILBERT

Posted on 05/21/2012 3:45:20 PM PDT by NYer

May 21, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) - A Florida Planned Parenthood affiliate has taken the opportunity of “National Masturbation Month” to highlight the national organization’s promotion of masturbation as part of a “a common and safe kind of sex play” with “many health benefits.”

On Friday, Planned Parenthood of Southwest and Central Florida tweeted, “Happy Masturbation Month! We’ve got lots of info on masturbation here,” providing a link to Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s page on masturbation.

There, Planned Parenthood states that “there are many harmful myths about masturbation that may cause us to feel uncomfortable about it. These myths can cause guilt, shame, and fear. Let’s get the facts straight. Masturbation is a natural and common activity for both women and men.”

“National Masturbation Month” was first announced in 1995 by the San Francisco-based sex-toy shop Good Vibrations. The month-long celebration includes the annual “Masturbate-a-Thon” to raise funds for sex education. Individuals participate in competitions, either by webcam or in person, based on “longest duration spent masturbating and most orgasms.”

Jim Sedlak of Stop Planned Parenthood (STOPP), a project of the American Life League, said that endorsing the “gateway drug” of masturbation was of a piece with Planned Parenthood’s ideology on sex education.

“Planned Parenthood is an organization that makes its money from people involved in sex,” Sedlak told LifeSiteNews.com in an email. “Although Planned Parenthood pushes masturbation for all, it particularly targets young people with the message. It is a way to get these young kids involved in a sexual lifestyle.”

Sedlak said that youths buy the idea of masturbation as “risk-free” sex but end up “hooked on sexual stimulation as a way to escape their problems.” Especially alarming is how masturbation at an early age has been shown to interfere with a child’s ability to develop compassion and to learn—effects seen in children who regularly masturbate as young as six years old.

The parenting section of Planned Parenthood’s website tells parents to encourage elementary-age children to experiment with masturbation.

“Kids begin to want additional sexual experiences, and Planned Parenthood is there to sell them products and to make millions from them,” said Sedlak.

Planned Parenthood needs to keep the customers coming in, and to do this they aim their perversions at children.

Surely just an accident (FR NOT being the NYT!) but this article appears immediately adjacent to this other article here today -—

May we all be forgiven but even in perversion there can be humor...

The good news is, this is comic relief, if a little off-color.

The bad news is, these people are dead serious.

Why not just attach electrodes to the relevant nerve points, and trigger the response over and over until either the batteries go dead, or the subject collapses of nervous prostration.

These half-measures get tiresome after while.

PP is part of the Cultural Marxist effort to destroy morality in children. This is all to promote the opposite “lifestyle” of the Stoics.....so that “emotions” rule the body and the intellect is never used. It is godless with no morality.

Then they are slaves of their body and ignorant. That is what the public schools are putting out.....ignorant slaves for the state. John Stuart Mill predicted that government schools are created to make slaves of the state.

Only parents should manage the schools their children attend and hire whomever they want to teach. Accreditation is all about getting the “proper” mindset to brainwash the children. The government filters the minds of all the allowed “teachers”. We were much more literate as a nation BEFORE the rules and regulations that came with the Fabian Socialist John Dewey.

I’ve had dreams where I was having great sex with a girlfriend (past, present or future) but I’ve never had a dream where anybody was masturbating.

Maybe one of these rocket surgeons can explain how masturbating for a month is supposed to help someone plan for being a parent.

When I was in Law School we did a tour of the coroner's office and morgue and they had a slide show presentation which basically should have been titled: "1001 Ways to Die While Masturbating".

Half their budget comes from taxpayers, but “no taxpayer funds go for abortion.” Now we know where it does go.
