Hollywood, CA (LifeNews.com) — Actress Julianne Moore, who has stared in movies such as Hannibal and Boogie Nights, is the latest Hollywood star to send out a fundraising pitch for Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion business. The donor letter is nothing new as Moore has been on the pro-abortion group’s board of directors for years.
Calling herself a "passionate supporter" of the "remarkable" abortion business, she said the organization "is on a roll, making progress that we’ve long hoped for."
"As a long-standing member of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America Board of Advocates, I’m asking you to lend your year-end support to one of my favorite causes," Moore urged.
In the letter, Moore outlined the kinds of things she’s done to support the pro-abortion group.
"Over time, I’ve done whatever I can to help Planned Parenthood succeed, from donating signed auction items from my films, to speaking out for choice in the media, to participating in Planned Parenthood events around the country," Moore said.
She said Americans should be "especially proud of Planned Parenthood."
Moore lauded the group for winning over the counter status for the morning after pill "for women 18 and older." However, the FDA decision to sell the Plan B drug without a prescription allows men to purchase it as well — something that concerns pro-life advocates who say it allows sexual abusers to cover up their crimes.
The actress also applauded Planned Parenthood for defeating the South Dakota abortion ban, in what she called a "landmark victory," and thanked the group for going to the Supreme Court to defeat the ban on partial-birth abortions.
"Please send a year-end gift to Planned Parenthood Federation of America today," Moore concludes.
Her letter follows just days after a similar fundraising pitch from Felicity Huffman and William Macy.
The couple, married in 1997, urge Planned Parenthood supporters to donate to the abortion business — saying it’s time for abortion activists to get on the offense after years of responding to pro-life advocates.
They came under fire for saying, "We support Planned Parenthood because we believe life is sacred," despite the fact that it does more abortions than any other company.
During the late 1990s and early 2000s, Moore appeared in a series of films that received Oscar recognition including The End of the Affair ("Best Actress" nomination) and her two 2002 films, Far From Heaven ("Best Actress" nomination) and The Hours ("Best Supporting Actress" nomination).
Her film, Freedomland, opened in February 2006 to mixed reviews and Moore’s latest film Trust the Man is directed by her husband, Bart Freundlich and also features her son Caleb.
Moore also drew complaints for her donations to pro-abortion presidential candidate John Kerry in 2004.
