Dangerous Colors

Planned Parenthood, one of the worst organizations in the country, has been distributing poor condoms -- which liberals believe should be freely available in all high school clinics nationwide -- according to Consumer Reports which released its rankings this week. From Sun-Sentinal:

Two of the three types of free condoms offered by Planned Parenthood received poor ratings, according to rankings that appear in the February issue of Consumer Reports, which hits newsstands Wednesday.

Planned Parenthood has since redesigned its "Honeydew" condom, which was the magazine's lowest-ranked brand with two "poor" ratings in strength and reliability. The group resubmitted all three of its brands for independent testing and received "excellent results," said Karen Pearl, president and chief executive of Planned Parenthood of Nassau County. The group's "Assorted Colors" brand was ranked next-to-last with a "poor" mark for strength but an "excellent" for reliability. The "Lollipop" got an overall "excellent" rating.
Pretty scary that poorly rated condoms have been available to teens, both those looking for free sex and those who happen to attend public school. Even worse, it took a whistleblower to get Planned Parenthood to strengthen its product.

Lollipop anyone?
