KaDee Strickland, currently known for her role as Charlotte King on the ABC drama Private Practice, is the latest Hollywood Celebrity to promote Planned Parenthood, the nation’s biggest abortion business.

In a new interview with Glamour magazine, Stickland, who also appeared in the romantic comedy Fever Pitch and was a cast regular in the television show The Wedding Bells, was asked which political issue most “fired her up.” Strickland said so-called women’s issues most convict her and cited how she is a former client of the abortion business, obtaining birth control from it in her younger years.

“The issue I’m most fired up about: Women’s health and sexual issues. Everything under the blanket about the way women are being perceived through politics is really provocative for me because … women and their health care is something that is really being belittled right now in such a blatant way is what I’m most fired up about,” she said. “When you are in a position, as someone who has been sexually assaulted or who has been a product of incest, and someone deems that as a potential for lying—the notion that women are so cunning and that something like abortion is so haphazard—that you would lie about being raped, it floors me.”

“That using birth control is not a valid choice. I had to go on birth control because I had ovarian cysts. When I was a waitress/actress, Planned Parenthood is what I turned to,” she said. “I wouldn’t have had the capacity to get my one doctor visit in a year without that. Who knows where my health would be. I could go on for days about how misconstrued the media has been, and I really hope that people, especially women, show up in force to be more authentic in this moment with politics. The issue of sexual assault is something I’ll always champion.”

Strickland made no mention of how Planned Parenthood has been caught on video lying to women about abortion and exploiting teenagers who have been sexually abused. The nation’s largest abortion business has also been caught in video in an undercover investigation covering up for and coaching a man and a woman posing as sex traffickers and inquiring about how to obtain abortions for the women they victimized.

Strickland also bashed Republicans and their opposition to the Obama HHS mandate that forces religious groups to violate their conscience and pay for birth control and drugs that can cause abortions for their employees.

“The radicalism in parts of the Republican Party is frightening to me right now because it’s not grounded in reality, from my point of view. The arguments just aren’t grounded in reality. It’s grounded in this created myth of how we behave as human beings, and that is not accurate,” Strickland claimed.

Strickland is not the only Private Practice actress who has promoted abortion and Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion business.

Kate Walsh, the actress known for her role as Dr. Addison Montgomery on the ABC dramas Grey’s Anatomy and Private Practice, has urged donations to the Planned Parenthood abortion business. Anyone who made a donation was entered to win a prize from the actress.



Walsh, a member of Planned Parenthood’s Board of Advisors, hosted a Congressional forum in 2008 that the abortion business promoted. During the panel, Walsh advocated cutting out all government funding for abstinence education, which drew condemnation from Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council.

As Brent Bozell of the Media Research Center notes, Walsh has not only promoted abortion but performed one on the show.

On the May 12 episode of ABC’s “Private Practice,” Dr. Addison Montgomery (played by actress Kate Walsh, a real-life Planned Parenthood activist) spewed the strongest pro-abortion — “pro-choice” — rhetoric as she performed a partial-birth abortion on a woman who thought she’d already had an abortion two months before.

“I hate what I’m about to do, but I support Patty’s right to choose,” the doctor declares. “It is not enough just to have an opinion, because in a nation of over 300 million people, there are only 1,700 abortion providers. And I’m one of them.”

The poor, poor killer of babies. ABC should have cued the orchestra to swell up and champion the few and the proud, followed by the on-screen credit, “This message brought to you by Planned Parenthood.” It was that blatant.
