On Monday morning, a group of high school students visited Olympia with Planned Parenthood. One thing the teens weren’t anticipating, was being publicly asked about their virginity.
A group of around six teens who were visiting as a part of Planned Parenthood’s annual Teen Lobbying Day were asked by State Rep. Mary Dye, a Republican lawmaker from Pomeroy, Garfield County.
The students were unafraid to voice their opinions regarding their support for bills that expand insurance coverage for birth control.
But Dye decided to ask the students whether they were virgins or not, and even went so far as to suggest that one student wasn’t, according to the students and Rachel Todd. Todd is the Planned Parenthood employee who accompanied the teens to the event. She is an education specialist for Planned Parenthood of Greater Washington and North Idaho.
