Orange is the New Black stars have partnered with Planned Parenthood, the nations largest abortion business, in their campaign “Women are Watching.”
The campaign is intended to get women to the polls and vote for pro-abortion politicians this November. Selenis Leyva and Natasha Lyonne helped designed t-shirts that read, “I am one of the 99% of women who have used birth control,” on the front and “It’s my business. Not politicians'” on the back.
Selenis Leyva said, “It’s hard to believe that there are still politicians trying to take away our access to birth control. This is not a controversial issue for women and it should be a rallying call for young women to get out the vote on November 4th in support of candidates that will stand up and fight for them. We need to make our voices heard and send a message loud and clear that we refuse to let politicians take us back.”
In a press release sent by Planned Parenthood, Natasha Lyonne said, “Politics aside — birth control is basic health care. Anyone who says differently is deeply out of touch. That’s why I’m proud to partner with Planned Parenthood Action Fund to make sure people get out and vote and send a message to politicians that you can’t win the support of women if you’ve spent your entire career attacking our access to basic health care. This is about respect and equality. And if politicians don’t trust women to make our own health care decisions, then we can’t trust those politicians to fight for us.”
However, as LifeNews previously reported, Planned Parenthood actually opposes over the counter birth control. The Washington Examiner reports “Planned Parenthood opposes over-the-counter contraception, pushing back against a popular Republican argument being used in many Senate races this year. The nonprofit’s lobbying arm, which advocates for women’s reproductive health issues, argued that calls for allowing birth control pills to be sold without a prescription are “empty gestures.”
These celebrities are unaware that Planned Parenthood doesn’t care about birth control; they care about abortion. While they claim they help millions of women, Kristan Hawkins, the President of Students for Life explains the problem with Planned Parenthood and contraception.

“Here’s the problem – the contraception Planned Parenthood offers to sexually active teens and young adults is faulty. Students on college campuses are shocked to find out that Consumer Reports rated Planned Parenthood condoms as the lowest quality, meaning they will fail more times to prevent pregnancy than other condoms. In addition, that hormonal contraception they push has been labeled by the liberal World Health Organization as a Type 1 Carcinogen – the same category which includes cigarettes and asbestos – which means it causes cancer.”
Ultimately, the abortion giant wants women to come to them for birth control so that when it fails they go to Planned Parenthood to have an abortion. In 2012, Planned Parenthood performed 327,166 abortions, maintaining their position as the largest abortion business in America. They also raked in 1.2 billion dollars in net assets, of which almost half came from our tax dollars.
Their breast cancer screening services dropped by 14% and their prenatal services by 32%. For every one-adoption referral that Planned Parenthood facilitated, they performed 149 abortions. And, once again, they did not perform a single mammogram. Planned Parenthood doesn’t help women; they sell abortion and it’s really unfortunate that these celebrates are helping them do it.
