CHATSWORTH, CALIFORNIA, April 3, 2012, (LifeSiteNews.com) – When a pornographer thinks of a worthy charity, his first thought is apparently the abortion industry. A California-based porn studio has announced it made a charitable donation to the Alan Guttmacher Institute “to counter the religio-conservatives.”

Girlfriends Films made the $1,000 gift on behalf of AVN Media Senior Editor and Chief Legal Analyst Mark Kernes. According to a press release at the Adult Video News service, Kernes put the donation “towards ensuring higher standards of sexual and reproductive health for all.”

Past recipients include Planned Parenthood, Lambda Legal (an LGBT legal activist organization), and National Public Radio.

The Alan Guttmacher Institute, originally a division of Planned Parenthood, remains devoted to its parent organization’s goals.

“In a world where the mass media go out of their way to spread misinformation about sexuality – particularly women’s sexuality – there is one shining light consistently presenting the facts and statistics needed to counter the religio-conservatives: The Guttmacher Institute,” Kernes said. He claimed “as a journalist”  he could not recount “how many times I’ve been confronted with some right-wing politician or preacher spouting suspicious factoids about anything having to do with sex, where I’ve logged onto the Guttmacher website and found scientific data to debunk whatever myth they’re trying to create or spread this week.”

“The choice says a lot about the person who selected it,” said the studio’s vice president, who goes by the name “Moose.”

Janice Shaw Crouse of Concerned Women for America said the donation says a lot about the industries’ shared values.

“Such coalitions for mutual support are not unusual because the ideology on which they are all based is the same, that women’s value stems from their commercial worth,” Crouse told LifeSiteNews.com.

Dr. Crouse, who is Senior Fellow at the Beverly LaHaye Institute, said, “The pornography industry depends for its survival on the availability of abortion, the objectification of women, and the continuation of a promiscuous culture.”

“There is a seamless confluence between these organizations in their exploitation of innocence,” she said.

Patrick Trueman, president of Morality In Media, a pornography watchdog organization, told LifeSiteNews.com that he believes the pornography industry should use its record profits to help those its product victimizes. “Planned Parenthood is wealthy,” Trueman said in a statement e-mailed to LifeSiteNews.com. “The money should be more appropriately directed to former pornography star Shelley Lubben’s Pink Cross Foundation which is helping so many women abused by pornographers in porn films.”

Girlfriends Films, which claims it was “created to provide realistic lesbian-sex movies for discerning viewers,” selects a different nonprofit recipient each month, donating more than $20,000 in 2011.

The studios’ entry into a mainstream publicity parallels the industry’s explosive growth. AVN, or Adult Video News, which was founded by Paul Fishbein, Barry Rosenblatt, and Irv Slifkin as an eight-page rag in 1983, now spans more than 200 pages a month.

Dr. Crouse argues that the ubiquity of porn in our culture continues to threaten human value and dignity. “The idea of inherent, God-given worth is anathema to many on the Left,” she said.

“If girls continue to buy into the idea of sex as recreation and demand sex without consequences, the coalition of Planned Parenthood, Guttmacher, and the pornography industry will thrive.”
