Los Angeles, CA (LifeNews.com) — The Planned Parenthood abortion business has always been close with the Hollywood elite and, last week, more than 300 people gathered at a shindig for the abortion business to honor three actors who have supported the pro-abortion cause and organization that does 25% of the nation’s abortions.
The Planned Parenthood Advocacy Project of Los Angeles County (PPAP) held its "Champions of Choice event to honor elected officials, celebrities, and entertainment and business leaders.
This year’s honorees included Donna and Tony Scott, Connie Britton, Calista Flockhart, and Assemblymember Bob Blumenfield.
Flockhart was the Emmy-nominated star of the series Ally McBeal and has acted in the ABC series Brothers and Sisters. Connie Britton is the Emmy-nominated star of the NBC’s Friday Night Lights.
The Scotts have been involved in movies and shows as actors and producers — including Austin Powers and Enemy of the State and directing and producing Top Gun, Crimson Tide, and the Emmy-nominated series The Good Wife.
PPAP says they each "demonstrate a strong commitment to" supporting and promoting abortion. "Honorees are Planned Parenthood Advocacy Project supporters who have worked to promote" abortion.
"At Planned Parenthood Advocacy we’re committed to protecting access to … safe, legal abortion services," PPAP said in a statement LifeNews.com received. "Our advocacy efforts are especially critical as the November mid-term elections approach we’re sending the message loud and clear that California supports pro-choice candidates who will work to protect access to women’s health services."
PPAP says funds raised at the gala to honor the Hollywood celebrities "support PPAP’s legislative and electoral activity including advocacy, public education campaigns, and grassroots organizing …. and ensuring access to safe, legal abortion."
PPAP has held the event for 12 years and has given awards to Gloria Steinem, Amy Poehler, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, David E. Kelly, Assembly Speaker John A. Perez, and Kate Walsh.
