Planned Parenthood Removes CTR Contraceptives After Criticism

- Advertisment - Save on Great LDS Gifts

This week, Planned Parenthood Action Council of Utah (PPAU) made headlines when they posted a picture of CTR-themed condoms on their Facebook page. They were designed specifically for an upcoming symposium in Salt Lake City. After backlash and the possible legal action of using a trademarked symbol, PPAU has removed the image and decided not to hand out the contraceptives. On their Facebook page, PPAU wrote:

PPAU has designed a special run of CTR condoms to give away at the 2016 Salt Lake Summer Symposium of Sunstone Magazine. Our intent was never to offend, but to use the idea of “choosing the right” to spark open, honest conversations about sexual health and contraception. We strive to be sensitive to our community and after listening to feedback, we have decided to remove the photo from our Facebook page and not give out the condoms at the Sunstone Symposium. We do not want to distract from the conference itself or from the more important information our volunteers are there to share.

This was the original image shared online:

Kristen Howey, a Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints spokesperson sent Fox 13 the following statement:

“CTR is a registered trademark owned by the Church and its affiliated organizations. We have not given Planned Parenthood permission to use it.”
