Planned Parenthood and Hollywood have long joined forces. And now, the abortion giant is using its latest annual report to boast of the entertainment industry’s support.

According to America’s largest abortion provider, “entertainment stands with Planned Parenthood.” As proof, Planned Parenthood’s 2016 – 2017 report listed an album to which entertainers donated various tracks. Those 34 performers included everyone from Handmaid’s Tale author Margaret Atwood to singers John Legend and Mary J. Blige.

100 percent of the proceeds benefited Planned Parenthood.

“Thanks to a group of high-profile musicians, artists, writers, comedians, and thought leaders, this year 7-inches for Planned Parenthood was released,” the report read, “a curated benefit project made up of seven-inch vinyl records and digital downloads of original content.”

In the album itself, Planned Parenthood Cecile Richards again thanked the performers.

“We are incredibly grateful to have the support of so many artists and entertainers who are standing with Planned Parenthood, Richards said in the opening track. “’7-inches for Planned Parenthood’ is a reminder that each of us has the power to use our voice to speak out for what we believe.”

Likewise, in its 2014 – 2015 report, Planned Parenthood listed specific celebrities who supported it. The 2015 – 2016 report did not.

Among other findings, the 2016 – 2017 report showed a slight decrease in abortion (from 328,348 to 321,384) and in government funding (from $543.7 million to $554.6 million) since the last report. And while adoption referrals increased (from 2,889 to 3,889), prenatal services decreased (from 9,419 to 7,762).

In addition to entertainers, Planned Parenthood also thanked the tech industry, the fashion industry and faith leaders. Planned Parenthood boasted “more than 70 tech leaders and executives,” “more than 100 clergy and faith leaders” and “more than 40 designers” that teamed up with it for different projects. Organizations it listed as partners were Tumblr, the Council of Fashion Designers, SisterReach and the Religious Institute.
