(CNSNews.com) – After reviewing materials posted on Planned Parenthood’s teenwire.com Web site at the request of Cybercast News Service, three House Republicans are calling for the termination of Planned Parenthood’s federal funding. Among other things, teenwire promotes the use of pornography by teenagers.
Rep. Doug Lamborn (R.-Colo.) said teenwire “is another reason we should pull all federal funding from Planned Parenthood,” a group that also performs abortions.
“There should be no money that goes to any Internet site that promotes promiscuity or sexual license in any way,” Rep. Steve King (R.-Iowa) told Cybercast News Service.
“I don’t believe taxpayer funding should be going to groups that put sexually explicit material on the Internet targeted at minors,” Rep. Joseph Pitts (R.-Pa.), chairman of the House Values Action Team, said.
The congressmen spoke to Cybercast News Service after reviewing materials from Planned Parenthood’s teenwire.com, which says its mission is to provide “medically accurate” information about sex to teenagers.
