Planned Parenthood ‘hijacks’ religious imagery in safe-sex ad

.- Catholic League president Bill Donohue has launched a campaign against Planned Parenthood Golden Gate and its recent “Safe is Sexy” television ad that features a young couple being interrupted from having “unprotected” sex by their guardian angels.

The ad, which will appear on MTV, VH1 and FX, shows a sloppy-looking male angel eating popcorn at the head of the bed and watching the couple in delight. Then, his female counterpart appears imploring him to do something. He accesses a TV remote and rewinds the scene of the couple in bed. This time, the woman asks her male partner if he has any protection, to which he exclaims, “Yeah, of course.” She responds, “Amen!”
 
“Given the moral hollowness of Planned Parenthood, it is not surprising to learn that it is now in the business of hijacking religious imagery to pander its sex-without-consequences message,” said Donohue.
 
“Ironically, while PPGG is ripping off Guardian Angels, the California chapter of Planned Parenthood is lobbying to defeat the Missing Angels Act,” noted Donohue.

The Missing Angels Act would require the issue of a birth certificate when stillbirth occurs. The act is being promoted by women who have experienced stillbirth. Currently, all states are required to issue a death certificate for a stillbirth; they also require the family to bury or cremate the baby.

“What really galls Planned Parenthood is the fear that the bill would help the pro-life movement by acknowledging the humanity of the unborn child,” said Donohue. “The bill says the fetus must have advanced beyond the 20th week of gestation.”
