Los Angeles, CA (LifeNews.com) — If you’re a Planned Parenthood fundraiser and you’re looking to hold an event in southern California that will raise big bucks for your abortion business, there’s one easy place to turn — Hollywood.

The nation’s largest abortion business, and its local affiliate have put together a star-studed event this evening that will be highlighted by some of the nation’s top actors and actresses.

According to a press statement LifeNews.com received, the gala will "honor individuals and businesses that have made outstanding contributions to" the pro-abortion group. The group’s president, Cecile Richards, said it has "much to celebrate" thanks to the November 2006 elections that put abortion advocates in control of Congress.

Lauren Graham, a star of the television series Gilmore Girls and co-star of the recent romantic hit comedy movie Because I Said So, is a Planned Parenthood board member and will be the host of the evening’s event.

Neil Patrick Harris, star of the CBS hit series How I Met Your Mother and Doogie Howser, and Stanley Tucci, co-star of the film The Devil Wears Prada, also a Planned Parenthood board member, will co-host the event.

Not to be outdone, Planned Parenthood has invited a plethora of celebrity gusts to participate, including Scott Buck, Dianna Miranda-Buck, Blythe Danner, David Eigenberg, Annabeth Gish, Kathryn Joosten, Carol Leifer, Luisa Leschin, Wendie Malick, Heather Tom, Aisha Tyler, and Kate Walsh.

The hobnobbing with the stars isn’t just confined to the Hollywood elite. The abortion business’ event will honor top politicians and business leaders who have supported its agenda.

United Farm Workers of America co-founder Dolores Huerta will receive the group’s top award and Antonio Villaraigosa, mayor of the City of Los Angeles, will be honored as well because of his efforts defeating the parental notification initiative last fall.

The Grove Family, represented by Andy Grove, former CEO and chairman of the board of Intel Corporation, will receive a Planned Parenthood award as well.
