Planned Parenthood Key ChainCONNECTICUT, United States, January 12, 2006 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Planned Parenthood has just launched a line of condom key chains mocking religion, family and patriotism.

The condom key chains, which feature a picture or slogan on a plastic holder containing a latex condom, offend “just about everyone in the country,” said Jim Sedlak, executive director of American Life League’s STOPP International, to Drudge Report, who broke the story. “Some are even blasphemous.”

“Planned Parenthood offends religious people with its key chain that shows a portion of the famous painting from the Sistine Chapel. Michelangelo gave us a beautiful image of Adam stretching out his hand to God, with God’s index finger about to touch Adam’s index finger,” said Sedlak. “In Planned Parenthood’s blasphemous version, God is handing Adam a condom.

“Planned Parenthood goes on to offend parents with its key chain that shows a caricature of a loudly crying baby,” said Sedlak. “Planned Parenthood’s slogan accompanying the caricature states, ‘Condoms are cheaper than diapers.’

Sedlak said Planned Parenthood also offends all patriotic Americans with a series of three key chains. “The first is a takeoff of the famous ‘Uncle Sam Wants You’ poster from World War II’ in Planned Parenthood’s version Uncle Sam is replaced with a condom saying ‘I Want You.’ The second is an American flag picture with the stars in the field of blue replaced with the words, ‘Wear with Pride.’ The third is a picture of the Statue of Liberty holding a condom instead of a torch.”

Other condom key chains include one that says, “Earth and condoms, we can’t live without them.”

The key chains, offered with 28 different designs, are for sale on Planned Parenthood of Connecticut’s web site.
