American Life League: Planned Parenthood Promotes Recreational Sex via 'Mile
High Club'

WASHINGTON, Jan. 7 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The American Life League slammed
Planned Parenthood Golden Gate's latest ad campaign, describing their new
"safe sex" ad as a promotion tool for new abortions and took strong exception
to the fact that the campaign was paid for with taxpayer dollars.

"Planned Parenthood says it promotes sexual health, but in reality, it's just
promoting recreational sex," said American Life League vice president Jim
Sedlak. Planned Parenthood Golden Gate recently released the ad campaign to be
aired on MTV, VH-1, and Comedy Central. The campaign is centered on Planned
Parenthood Golden Gate's so-called Mile High Club.

Sedlak explained, "Planned Parenthood makes one third of its income by
providing contraceptives and abortions. It promotes recreational sex to keep
demand for their business high."

The Mile High Club is a slang term used to describe people who engage in
"safer sex" aboard an airplane at least one mile above the earth's surface.
"Planned Parenthood calls this humor; we call it vulgar."

"By linking itself to the Mile High Club, Planned Parenthood's message is loud
and clear," said Sedlak. "It is telling kids in the 18-24 age bracket to 'Have
sex! It's fun.' In reality, Planned Parenthood is just trolling for more
business."

"What most people probably do not know is that ads such as these are paid for
with taxpayer money," said Sedlak. "The Federal Government gives at least $305
million annually to Planned Parenthood. This must end! American Life League is
continuing its call to American taxpayers to sign the online petition at
http://www.StopPlannedParenthoodTaxFunding.com and contact state and federal
elected officials to cut Planned Parenthood off from our wallets!"
