So reads the message included in the Valentine’s Day “goody bag” California lawmakers in the State Capitol received from Planned Parenthood on Valentine’s Day.
“This is the ‘goody bag’ Planned Parenthood dropped off at my office. Stay classy PP. Stay classy,” Assemblywoman Melissa Melendez (R-Lake Elsinore) posted on Facebook on Valentine’s Day, along with a photo of the gift.
Sen. Republican Leader Shannon Grove (R-Bakersfield) weighed in: “We confirmed several offices received this ‘gift’ from Planned Parenthood, including mine. Really???? This is how PP communicates with members of the state legislature. Good thing I stopped a group of kids from seeing it in my office……#Crass #disgusting #Vulgar.”
“DON’T F*CK WITH US,” reads the condom in the Planned Parenthood gift bag.
“DON’T F*CK WITHOUT US.”
Several Capitol employees including Sen. Grove said the statement on the condom appeared to be a threat. Indeed, “Don’t f*ck with us” isn’t mincing words.
Imagine if an elected Senator or Assemblymember gave this “goody bag” to a member of his or her staff.
Others said in the era of #MeToo and hypersensitivity to sexual harassment, this “goody bag” and condoms appears to condone workplace sexual relationships.
A woman on Facebook replied to Sen. Grove: “this ‘Valentine’ looks a lot like sexual harassment. Can you imagine getting that from a co-worker, neighbor, or relative? I think this should be challenged as sexual harassment. This is not acceptable and Planned Parenthood should be held accountable. With all of the #me too pandering they do, it’s time their actions be exposed more and more. Glad you’re getting the word out.”
Another Facebook friend replied to Melendez: “Charming. Wonder how many of these they dropped off at area schools?”
The above comes from a Feb. 19 story in the California Globe.
Many commercials on television now are cheap, vulgar and trashy. It is hard to find a channel where they are not. Nothing is private anymore. Some of the language used right on television would have made our ancestors blush.
I celebrate St. Valentine’s Day, not the pagan festival Lupercalia.Sorry folks, I know longer even buy those “cute” cupid decorations either as they really are pagan (the son of the goddess Venus) and are not little cherubs. St. Valentine got thrown in jail because he defended Christian marriage, and Christian marriage is a biological unity of two complimentary people (bodies) , a man and a woman.
In my experience, the people who work and volunteer at PP are neither nice nor happy people. This thing sent to the legislators is in character with what I would expect of such people.
They are trying to drum up business, especially abortion. I recommend taking the “gifts” and dumping them back on some Planned Parenthood office disk, unless one wants to charge sexual harassment and hold them for evidence.
This is another example of how far our culture has sunk with regards to the gift of human sexuality from our loving God. How very sad. Sex is now a sport instead of an expression of love between a husband and wife. Our country is in trouble on many fronts and this is just one of them.
