Planned Parenthood Deems Virginity a 'Social Construct'


Planned Parenthood is known for its progressive policies, and now they are seeking to redefine the concept of virginity. The abortion provider posted a Tweet Tuesday which said, “Virginity is a social construct.”

They claimed, “The idea of virginity comes from outdated — let’s be real, patriarchal— ways of thinking that hurts everyone.”

According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, a virgin is most commonly defined as “a person who has not had sexual intercourse.”

Planned Parenthood’s own website states, “A virgin is someone who’s never had sex.”
