Actress Kate Walsh Urges Donations to Planned Parenthood Abortion Biz

Kate Walsh, the actress known for her role as Dr. Addison Montgomery on the ABC dramas Grey’s Anatomy and Private Practice, is urging end-of-year donations to the Planned Parenthood abortion business.
In a message sent to her followers on twitter today, Walsh wrote Thursday night, “Tw’eethearts, ‘Tis the season. Donate to Planned Parenthood for a chance to win an autographed Private Practice DVD set – from [yours truly].”
“Donate to Planned Parenthood here for a chance to win an autographed Private Practice DVD,” Walsh said in a follow up tweet sent today, again urging donations to the abortion business.
Fan sites and followers of Walsh on Twitter, including Planned Parenthood, have re-tweeted the post and added to Walsh’s appeal for funds for the abortion business that has been caught on video lying to women about abortion and exploiting teenagers who have been sexually abused.
Walsh, a member of Planned Parenthood’s Board of Advisors, hosted a Congressional forum in 2008 that the abortion business promoted. During the panel, Walsh advocated cutting out all government funding for abstinence education, which drew condemnation from Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council.
“Contrary to what Walsh and her liberal friends believe, doing away with abstinence education won’t lower teen pregnancy rates,” Perkins said in an email about the event. “Instead it would squelch one of the most effective methods of reducing teen sexual risk.”
On the CBS “Early Show,” co-host Julie Chen asked Walsh about why she opposes abstinence education.
“Abstinence is one — abstinence is one aspect of sex education, but it is not the complete aspect. And to expect, I think, everybody to remain abstinent is just — it’s like asking them not to grow. It’s like we don’t ask people to not try out for sports,’ Walsh claimed.
Walsh is but one of many Hollywood stars to encourage people to donate to the abortion business or support their agenda.
Earlier this year, four actors from the acclaimed television series Law and Order: Criminal Intent recorded a video endorsing the nation’s largest abortion business, Planned Parenthood. They specifically endorse its efforts to force Americans to pay for abortions in a government-run health care plan.
Actors Eric Bogosian, Vincent D’Onofrio, Kathryn Erbe, and Julianne Nicholson lend their faces, voices and names to the pro-abortion effort and specifically endorsed taxpayer funding of abortions and abortion coverage in health care insurance.
Last year, Sex and the City star Cynthia Nixon, who plays Miranda on the popular television program and movies, stumped for donations on Mother’s Day. Her letter to Planned Parenthood donors followed one from children’s author Judy Blume.
The Blume letter sparked so much national outrage after LifeNews.com exposed it, that Planned Parenthood begged its supporters to send thank you notes to her.
Nixon attended a pro-abortion Planned Parenthood event in August 2004 and proceeds from a charity auction consisting of clothing worn by the stars on the set in 2004 benefited the abortion business.
In 2008, actresses Blythe Danner and Gwyneth Paltrow repeated their frequent appeals for funds 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.
