Actress Kathleen Turner is keynoting a Planned Parenthood fundraiser next week in what is the latest action by the actress to promote abortion and the nation’s biggest abortion business.

Turner, who came to fame in the 1980s with starring role in moves such as Body Heat, Peggy Sue Got Married, Romancing the Stone, The War of the Roses, Who Framed Roger Rabbit and Prizzi’s Honor, takes the stage in a different role on November 14 at Planned Parenthood Mohawk Hudson’s annual fundraising banquet in Saratoga Springs, New York.

The abortion business says it expect more than 180 guests to attend this event at the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame where tickets run $75 apiece. At the event, Planned Parenthood will award three local pro-abortion activists with the “Giraffe Award,” which recognizes them for “sticking their necks out” for abortion.

Turner is the Chair of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America Board of Advocates and has appeared in their TV and radio ad campaigns that actively lobbied for the organization in Washington. Turner previously donated her book Send Yourself Roses for a Planned Parenthood fundraising event.

In 2009, Turner promoted one of President Barack Obama’s top pro-abortion nominees, former Planned Parenthood board member and Obama judicial pick Dawn Johnsen. She was the Obama pick for Assistant Attorney General for the Office of the Legal Counsel in the Obama administration and she drew national criticism and was questioned during her Senate hearing on a legal paper she filed for NARAL, the pro-abortion group where she served as legal counsel, equating pregnancy to slavery.

As a board member of People For the American Way, Turner’s voice was on thousands of phone calls representing the pro-abortion group to turn out calls and emails on Johnsen’s behalf. “Hello, I’m Kathleen Turner calling on behalf of People For the American Way. I’m asking you to join me in urging the Senate to confirm Dawn Johnsen,” she said.

After denigrating former President George W. Bush, Turner says, “Because of Dawn’s courageous opposition to those policies, the Right Wing wants to block her confirmation. But we can’t let them.” Though she said Johnsen has the “integrity” she needs for the position, Turner didn’t address the pregnancy-slavery comments or Johnsen’s comments calling women “fetal containers” if they are not allowed to have abortions.

Turner received the 2000 Planned Parenthood Federation of America Margaret Sanger Award.
