Like most parents, Planned Parenthood Vice President Dawn Laguens has talks with her 17-year-old daughters about sex and responsibility.
But when her triplets’ friends come over, Laguens also talks to them about sex and even offers them condoms and emergency contraception – much to the embarrassment of her daughters.
Laguens, vice president of the largest abortion business in the U.S., shared these details about her life in a new interview with STAT News.
Laguens’ talks with her daughters began as most families’ do. When they were younger, she said she explained how different body parts work and how babies are made. As they got older, around age 12, Laguens said she began talking to them about sexual responsibility, STDs and their physical and emotional health.
She said she also tells her daughters: “Teaching our young people to be thinking about the whole person, and to be respecting the whole person, and to be caring for the whole person, is an important part of the sex ed that we do. Talking, again, not just about condoms and birth control but about relationships and consent.”
But she does not stop there or encourage them to practice abstinence. Instead, the Planned Parenthood vice president said she gets “pretty bold” in their conversations about sex – and not just with her own children.
“Their friends come over and I ask ‘Do you and your parents talk about sex and sexuality?’ and my kids’ eyes are as big as saucers,” Laguens said. “They’ve always had access to condoms and emergency contraception, in the house, where they or their friends could access it.”
Laguens did not say whether those friends’ parents know about the talks or the birth control that she makes available to them.
Laguens probably is not teaching other parents’ children about abstinence before marriage either. She is clear about her disdain abstinence-only sex education. She told the news outlet that public schools should “eliminate some of the abstinence-only and some of that other bull we have to put up with…”
Laguens’ admitted actions show that she does not trust parents to talk with their children about sex in the way they think best. Instead, she pushes Planned Parenthood’s irresponsible sex agenda on other parents’ children, possibly without their knowledge or consent.
For years, many parents have expressed concern about Planned Parenthood’s influence on young students, especially in the public school system. The abortion group runs sex education programs in public schools across the country.
Some parents and pro-lifers say Planned Parenthood uses its sex ed programs to gain students’ trust, put teens on birth control, and then when it fails, sell more abortions. The group, which aborts more babies than any other group in the U.S., openly opposes abstinence education programs.
Others are opposed because they say Planned Parenthood promotes risky sexual behavior to vulnerable young teens. In 2014, Live Action release a video of Planned Parenthood employees telling young girls that “stop” really doesn’t mean “stop” during sex, and encouraging underage teen females to participate in sado-masochistic sexual activities, including gagging, whipping, asphyxiation, shopping at sex stores and viewing pornography.
LifeNews also reported that Planned Parenthood’s booklet for HIV-positive youth, “Healthy, Happy and Hot,” tells young people that it is their “human right” to not tell their partner that they have HIV.
