Pro-life groups: Planned Parenthood has gone too far with violent cartoon

.- Christians and pro-life advocates are expressing shock and outrage today over an eight minute promotional movie, produced by the San Francisco area Planned Parenthood organization, which depicts violence against pro-lifers and abstinence educators.

The new animated feature, which appears on the website of Planned Parenthood Golden Gate, shows, among other scenes, a stuffy abstinence educator being drowned in a trash can, pro-life demonstrators outside of an abortion clinic being blown up, and one protestor being decapitated in the closing credits.

The promotional feature stars Dianisis, an animated, “superhero for choice”, who often repeats the catchphrase, “safe is sexy,” dispensing condoms and eliminating her enemies.

In a statement released yesterday, Jim Sedlak, director of STOPP, an anti-Planned Parenthood division of the American Life League said that, "In this post-9/11 era of terrorism, Planned Parenthood has recklessly crossed the line by promoting violence against people who do not share the organization's radical beliefs." 

He likewise called the organization’s actions, “reprehensible, because there is no guarantee that someone viewing this video might not act on its suggestions and instigate violence against people of faith."

"This appalling animation,” he continued, “posted on an official Planned Parenthood web site, demonstrates the organization's complete disrespect for human life. American Life League demands that Planned Parenthood publicly reveal the names of all persons involved in the development and posting of this outrageous material and immediately dismiss all individuals involved from their positions as employees or volunteers.’

Sedlak said the group is demanding “that Planned Parenthood issue a public apology without delay to pro-life Christians everywhere for inciting violence against them."

Douglas R. Scott, president of Washington-based Life Decisions International, added that, "This video is absolutely outrageous," pointing out that “Pro-life men and women are depicted as evil and stupid. It sends a message to teenagers that it is acceptable to eliminate those who disagree. It is also riddled with misinformation about birth control, abortion, and sexual activity."
