Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) — Actresses Blythe Danner and Gwyneth Paltrow are at it again, asking abortion advocates across the country to donate money to the nation’s largest abortion business.
In an email Friday prior to Mother’s Day, the mother and daughter Hollywood stars primped the pump for more donations for Planned Parenthood.
"We are Blythe Danner and Gwyneth Paltrow, and this is the third time we’ve written a Mother’s Day letter to people like you who support Planned Parenthood," they wrote in the email LifeNews.com received.
The pair apparently believe promoting abortion is the best way to honor mothers.
"We think that Mother’s Day is the perfect time to think about what it means to support mothers in this country," they added. "There is no organization that we know of that supports motherhood and all that it means more than Planned Parenthood."
Danner and Paltrow beg for funds saying, "These are challenging times for Planned Parenthood."
"The Planned Parenthood Mother’s Day campaign happens just once a year. It’s a special time for us, made even more special by helping mothers and daughters everywhere by donating to Planned Parenthood Federation of America," they added.
The actresses promised to send a special Mother’s Day card to the donors and their mothers in honor of the donation to the company that does nearly 300,000 abortions annually.
"You’ll be making a gift to millions of mothers — and to the future of our country. What a profound way to mark this day," the claimed.
Last year, the pair wrote they "cannot stand idly by" while abortion "comes under attack" from pro-life groups and lawmakers.
Cheryl Sullenger, a Kansas pro-life advocate, responded to last year’s request for funds by saying, “I think fans like to look at Blythe Danner and Gwenneth Paltrow as an example of loving family members."
"It is disappointing to see how Grandma and Mom could so radically support the brutal killing of innocent babies who would be just as loving and adorable as Paltrow’s children, Apple and new baby Moses, if they were given the same opportunity to live," Sullenger added.
“If Danner and Paltrow were really interested in protecting women, they would use their influence to stop the tragedy of abortion, not continue it,” Sullenger said.
