The Craziest Anti-Planned Parenthood Ads

Posted By on Fri, Mar 2, 2012 at 7:35 AM



Planned Parenthood doesn't shy away from provocative gimmicks in its efforts to promote sex education and reproductive health; earlier this week, we brought you the news that the nonprofit has launched a new campaign encouraging people to "check in" to a special social network when they don condoms for sex.

It's no surprise that Planned Parenthood has been subjected to some veritably loony attacks from social conservatives as a result. Now, courtesy of Ranker, we have 10 alternately disturbing, hilarious, and bizarre video ads attacking Planned Parenthood and abortion in one place.

We can't decide which is our favorite. The top contenders are perhaps the above shot for the American Life League, in which a spokesman explains that Planned Parenthood is trying to addict people to sex and that "Planned Parenthood's gateway drug is masturbation," or the below video from Pro-Life Action League, in which an aborted fetus speaks to us from heaven ("God is angry at my mother").



Take a look at the whole list and let us know what you think.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
