A “I have sex” campaign

The video below was made by some students at Wesleyan University in Connecticut.  The students made this video in response to the House GOP attempts to defend defund Planned Parenthood.  According to the students,

“In order to “balance the budget” the House of Representatives recently announced the intention to strip all federal funding to Planned Parenthood. This is unacceptable. It’s time to face reality: many young people have sex, and need to know how to stay safe and healthy. Even those who have chosen to wait still need to know how to be safe and healthy when begin their sexual activity. This extreme ideological measure threatens our youth’s ability to choose their own future.”

“In many parts of America, Planned Parenthood is the only place young people can go to learn about safe sex, access contraceptives, or have a simple question about “down there” answered. ”

“With all the rhetoric centering on “government waste,” Congress’s refusal to close multi-billion dollar corporate tax loopholes and instead eliminate essential, multi-million dollar sexual health programs is beyond hypocritical.”

“We are starting a student movement to make sure elected leaders know: Americans have sex, and we stand with Planned Parenthood.”

Please share…..
