Graphic Planned Parenthood images from their ‘approved’ books, videos are deemed to graphic for pro-life group to use

The Washington Post and New York Times rejected advertising revenue last week from the American Life League which wanted to buy full-page ads revealing sexually graphic images that Planned Parenthood distributes to children as young as 10 with a message condemning federal funding.

Both publications deemed the images in the ad as being “too graphic” and “shocking” for their adult readers even though elementary school-aged children are exposed to the same pictures at schools that use Planned Parenthood’s material for their sex education programs.

According to American Life League, the largest Catholic pro-life education organization in the U.S , The Washington Post rejected the advertisement because they believe it would be too graphic for their readers.

The New York Times offered to run the ad, but only if the images could be blurred out, and then the paper would also include a disclaimer below the ad to read: “Image too shocking for the New York Times audience.”

In response to the two newspapers’ reactions, ALL released a statement, saying: “If they are too graphic for adults, then they certainly should not be in elementary school classrooms.”

The pro-life group also noted that the Affordable Care Act mandates every public school district in the United States to use Planned Parenthood’s material for their sex education programs, which means that every student in the nation will be exposed to the images the two national newspapers rejected.
