Planned Parent is an odd duck. On the one hand, it claims to be a stalwart defender of the dignity of women. On the other hand, this is what Planned Parenthood is billing to attendees of the Democratic National Convention as its “signature party” — with main speaker Cecile Richards:
“Sex, Politics and Cocktails.” My, doesn’t that just scream respect for women?
I’ve been comparing and contrasting the various things happening at both political conventions this year. From Cardinal Dolan giving the closing benediction at the GOP convention to abortion and gay marriage being the centerpieces of the DNC convention. Consider this party “Exhibit D”.
One wonders if Planned Parenthood will be handing out free condoms at this shindig. After all, contraception is one of their favorite freebie offerings at college campuses and their clinics. Maybe Planed Parenthood could have DNC-themed condoms offered at the end of the event as party favors. Seems in keeping with the general theme, right? And the fact that this party goes for almost five hours and has a “planned” ending time at 2AM surely ensures that everyone is going to be making free and respectful choices, surely?
Oh, and all of this is basically paid for by you and me. Neat, huh?
In doing the background research for this post I was surprised (shouldn’t have been, really) to find out “Sex, Politics and Cocktails” is a very common theme for Planned Parenthood parties, from New England to Florida to California (and California) to Washington State (that last one with the promotional tagline “Put your politics where your cocktails are” — nice?).
Clearly then this is considered a good idea by Planned Parenthood at the institutional level – it’s not just some desperate attempt by an independent party coordinator to separate their soiree from the pack of parties at the Democratic convention this year.
So the next time you hear Democrats accuse Republicans of waging a “war on women”, ask yourself: what does it say when a Democrat-sponsored convention invites men to come to a party linking “sex”, “politics” and “cocktails” where all the men can bet the women in attendance support untethering sex from babies, and who can’t even raise the excuse that contraception costs them (or the men) money? Oh and there are cocktails. Plenty of cocktails. Does that sound like a perfect recipe for encouraging respect for women?
The party could be more accurately billed as “Free Sex, Two Drink Minimum.”
Welcome to the Democratic Convention. Welcome to Planned Parenthood’s idea of respecting women.
It was nice of them to make the second building from the left look like a penis, in case it wasn’t obvious what the party was about.
Hmmm. “Sex” and “cocktails”. That means that Bill Clinton, Anthony Weiner, Ted Kennedy (so what if he is dead - remember Levitas can raise the dead), and Barney Frank (when he saw the word “ cock-tail”, he signed up for the party), will be there.
I understand the Eliot Spitzer has gotten a job there are a bartender.
Janet Napolitano is the security body-checker at the door. Women be warned.
It’s gonna be one “Animal House” of a party.
Sandra Fluke will beguile people with her “Tales of a Thousand Close Encounters of the Deeply Personal Kind”. (in other words, the life story of a nymphomaniac).
Indeed, the difference between the two parties is incredible. Light and darkness: God will permit what our nation chooses, because God wants us to have freedom to choose. AND... If we choose darkness...we will FULLY receive just that.
Gross. Last fall, there was an art crawl in Pittsburgh. Our local PP decided to participate. I didn’t go, but someone from our 40 Days for Life vigil sneaked in to check it out. The “art” PP displayed was, of course, pornographic, there were giant bowls of free condoms, and they served box wine!!!!! Hahaha!!!! Losers.
