Most people know Hollywood writer/director Joss Whedon for his work on “Toy Story” and comic book films.
But the big name writer, like many celebrities, also supports abortion. In 2015, Whedon headlined an end-of-the-year donation campaign to benefit the Planned Parenthood abortion business. A few months ago, he also wished the abortion group a happy 100th anniversary on Twitter.
Two of his most recent projects have been the movie “Batgirl” and a short film for the abortion chain Planned Parenthood.
On Wednesday, Whedon posted a message on Twitter announcing the film.

“Unlocked” explores Whedon’s ideas of what the world would be like without Planned Parenthood. Supposedly, women would no longer have access to birth control, cancer screenings, STD testing/treatments and sex education.

The 3-minute film shows a series of situations involving women who are hurting because they did not have access to Planned Parenthood. In one situation, a pregnant young woman crumples up a letter telling her that she received a full scholarship to college. In another, a middle-aged woman is in a hospital bed with her family surrounding her, as her doctor points to X-rays of her chest.
Later, the film shows what happens to the same women when they receive help from the abortion chain. It shows the pregnant young woman (before she is pregnant) receiving birth control there, and then going to college with the well wishes of her parents. It shows the middle-aged woman celebrating her birthday with her family because of the services (possibly cancer testing) she received at Planned Parenthood, and it shows teens in a sex education class with a Planned Parenthood employee.
The film ends with the question, “What world do you want? #StandwithPP”
Whedon’s little Planned Parenthood ad assumes that the abortion chain is essential to women’s health care in the U.S., but it isn’t.
In the case of cancer screenings, pap smears and other non-abortion services, Planned Parenthood is not a leading provider by far. The abortion group’s own reports show these services decreasing drastically over the past few years.
Its patient numbers are down, too. In 2011, Planned Parenthood boasted seeing 3 million patients a year. Earlier this year, CEO Cecile Richards said they now see “about 2.5 million” patients.
In the past 10 years, Planned Parenthood also shut down 200 facilities across the U.S., while at the same time receiving increases in taxpayer funding, according to an analysis of the group’s annual reports.
Women can find more comprehensive health services at federally qualified community health centers, which outnumber Planned Parenthood facilities by more than 20 to one. Many of these centers also provide mammograms and prenatal care, things that Planned Parenthoods do not.
The abortion group itself is voluntarily closing facilities across the United States and referring its patients to these very same community health centers for care.
Planned Parenthood is not an essential provider of anything except abortion. The abortion group aborts more than 300,000 unborn babies every year, approximately one third of all abortions in the U.S.
