Massachusetts Planned Parenthoods willing to give 12-year-olds free condoms

Children of virtually any age can walk into a Planned Parenthood facility in Massachusetts and receive free condoms, an article from the New Boston Post claims.

The Planned Parenthood League of Massachusetts has facilities in Boston, Worcester, Springfield, and Marlborough. In a phone interview, they told the New Boston Post that there is no age requirement for children to receive condoms or other services. “You can be 12 years old,” the Planned Parenthood representative said. “I mean, I hope, I personally hope he’s not 12, you know? But if he is, be protected.” The process, the representative said, is simple.

“You just go to a Planned Parenthood, they’re in a bowl, you take ’em, and you walk out,” she said. “That’s it.”

Additionally, children can receive free lubricant at Planned Parenthood facilities. Their website also advised that children do not need parental consent for birth control, emergency contraception, pregnancy tests, or STD testing and treatment.

In the state of Massachusetts, the age of consent is 16. The law specifically states that it is illegal to “have sex with, or to touch in a sexual way, a child under 14.”

Promoting sex to children is not something that is unique to the Planned Parenthood League of Massachusetts. Recently, parents in Washington state reacted with outrage when a Planned Parenthood flyer was sent home with students promoting sex for 11-year-olds.

Former Planned Parenthood staffers have also spoken out about how the corporation markets itself to children with the goal of creating lifetime customers who come to them again and again. Ramona Treviño, a former Planned Parenthood manager, said she thought she would be working to prevent women from getting abortions by giving them tools to prevent pregnancy.

Working for a non-abortion center made it clear to me that contraception and abortion are two sides of the same coin. One does not exist without the other… Contraception creates a market for abortion by promoting promiscuity and providing men and women a false sense of security against an unintended pregnancy. The more promiscuous people are (especially young people), the more likely they’ll become pregnant.

The more people use birth control and adopt a contraceptive mentality, the higher the odds that they’ll seek an abortion. Because, let’s face it, if they’re using birth control, a child is not part of the ‘plan.’ Abortion is the backup, so to speak, for contraceptive failure, misuse, or lack of self-control.

She further explained that Planned Parenthood’s business model ultimately revolves around promoting sex.

“Planned Parenthood is not in the business of prevention,” she said. “Preventing unplanned pregnancy doesn’t generate a profit. Promoting abstinence, self-control, or monogamous marriage does not keep the blood money flowing in. SEX. Sex is how Planned Parenthood meets its abortion quotas.”

And for children, there’s no difference in how they’re treated, despite the risks. “Regardless of how much ‘education’ children receive, they lack the self-control and brain development to use contraception correctly and consistently,” Treviño explained. “Planned Parenthood is telling your kids it’s okay to have sex as long as they use ‘protection,’ knowing full well that their ‘protection’ will fail.”
