Hollywood actresses are trying to turn the abortion business Planned Parenthood into a fashion trend.
On Wednesday, award-winning actress Jessica Lange wore a small Planned Parenthood pin on her blazer during her appearance on “the Late Show” with Stephen Colbert, Vanity Fair reports. Some of Lange’s most well-known roles were in “American Horror Story,” “Tootsie” and “King Kong.”
Two other actresses, Emma Stone and Dakota Johnson, wore the same Planned Parenthood pin to the Oscars in February. Stone wore the small pin on her gold dress, while Johnson attached her pin onto her gold clutch, according to the report.
Though none of the actresses actually spoke about Planned Parenthood or abortion during their public appearances, their pins were a subtle sign of their support and attracted a lot of attention in the entertainment media.
Here’s more from Vanity Fair:
Lange has long been supporting organizations such as Planned Parenthood. In 2004, she performed at an A.C.L.U. benefit at Lincoln Center along with Robin Williams, Paul Simon, and others. In 2008, she attended a Planned Parenthood fund-raiser, where she was photographed with Kathleen Turner and Jane Fonda.
Unquestioning support of the abortion chain has become a new trend among Hollywood celebrities and America’s elite. Other celebrity backers include Emma Watson, Beyonce, Katy Perry, Scarlett Johansson, Amy Schumer, America Ferrera and Rowan Blanchard.
The celebrity support for the abortion group is not matched by the public. Polls show a majority of Americans want to see Planned Parenthood defunded; and in November, Americans elected a new group of pro-life politicians who promised to defund the abortion giant.
Planned Parenthood currently receives about half a billion tax dollars every year, and performs about 320,000 abortions annually, about one third of all abortions in the United States. A recent congressional investigation into the abortion business involving its sales of aborted baby parts concluded with lawmakers recommended that Congress defund it.
Planned Parenthood also has been caught in numerous scandals involving Medicaid fraud and failures to report suspected sex trafficking and sexual abuse of minors.
