'Does Size Matter,' Asks Ruler Sold by Abortion Provider

(CNSNews.com) - A pro-life group is criticizing Planned Parenthood for selling a 6-inch ruler that asks, "Does Size Matter?"

According to American Life League's STOPP International, the ruler directs children to Teenwire, a Planned Parenthood website filled with "graphic sexual content."

"Planned Parenthood's facade that it is an organization that helps women and children continues to crumble as more people discover their offensive products, which trivialize sexuality and directly target children," said Jim Sedlak, executive director of STOPP International.

As CNSNews.com reported, pro-life groups recently expressed outrage at Planned Parenthood's "insensitivity" in selling t-shirts reading, "I had an abortion."

Planned Parenthood's website advertised the t-shirt as "yet another t-shirt in our new social fashion line." It said the "soft and comfortable fitted tees assert a powerful message in support of women's rights."

The rulers - in assorted colors green, orange, red and yellow - are sold in packages of 100 for $30; 10 for $25; or 5 for $27.50, the Planned Parenthood website says.

"This is an organization that is shameless in its attempts to force its exploitive ideologies upon the public," said Sedlak.

STOPP International is urging is encouraging parents to "not only object to this latest Planned Parenthood stunt, but to act as a human filter and make sure you children aren't able to access this free-sex, everything-is-okay drivel from this abortion organization.
