Some of Hollywood’s top actresses have voiced their support for Planned Parenthood’s abortion business in the wake of nine videos showing the organization’s involvement in organ harvesting. As LifeNews previously reported, in videos released by The Center for Medical Progress, Planned Parenthood executives admit to altering abortion procedures to procure salable organs for harvesting and casually discuss ways their doctors can “crush” unborn babies to obtain fully intact parts.
In some of the most recent videos, former phlebotomist Holly O’Donnell explains how Planned Parenthood worked with Stem Express, the organ harvesting company that bought the fetal “tissue” from the abortion company, to pressure patients into “donating” their aborted babies to research and even harvested the brain of an aborted baby born alive.
The Hollywood Reporter reports that the ten actresses who are the most outspoken about their love for Planned Parenthood include: Lena Dunham, Scarlet Johansson, Elizabeth Banks, Sarah Silverman, Kristen Bell, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Kate Walsh, Julianne Moore and America Ferrera and Connie Britton.
In 2014, Girls actress Lena Dunham designed a shirt with Planned Parenthood to promote their organization and her new book. Unbelievably, she also joked about aborting the royal baby on Twitter when Kate Middleton announced she was pregnant with her second child.

#2: Scarlett Johansson Last year, Johansson said if Republicans win control of the Senate they will take away a woman’s right to choose. Johansson, who has starred in Hollywood hits including Iron Man and Lost in Translation, is no stranger to the pro-abortion movement. In 2008 and 2012, she campaigned for Barack Obama, the most pro-abortion president in U.S. History; and she has repeatedly supported Planned Parenthood. She also designed a t-shirt on behalf of the abortion giant. Her pink t-shirt read, “Hey Politicians! The 1950s called …” on the front. And on the back, the shirts say: “They want their sexism back!” Text on the left sleeve is signed, “Love Scarlett Johansson.”

#3: Elizabeth Banks
Earlier this year, Hunger Games star, Elizabeth Banks, promoted Planned Parenthood in a piece with Cosmopolitan magazine. Although the majority of the interview focused on the stars new movie, Pitch Perfect 2, somehow Cosmopolitan and Banks were able to hit on the importance of abortion and Planned Parenthood.
Additionally, in 2012, she was featured in a video for Barack Obama and Planned Parenthood explaining that less than 5% of the abortion giant’s services are “controversial,” referring to abortion.
#4: Sarah Silverman:
A week after the first video was released by The Center for Medical Progress, comedian Sarah Silverman voiced her support for Planned Parenthood on Twitter. She said, “Abortion is still legal in the great U.S of A. It would be insane not to use fetal tissue 4 science & education in such cases. .”
In that first video, Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s Senior Director of Medical Services, Dr. Deborah Nucatola, describes how Planned Parenthood sells the body parts of aborted unborn children and admitting she uses partial-birth abortions to supply intact body parts. She said, “I’d say a lot of people want liver. And for that reason, most providers will do this case under ultrasound guidance, so they’ll know where they’re putting their forceps. The kind of rate-limiting step of the procedure is calvarium. Calvarium—the head—is basically the biggest part.”
Nucatola concludes, “We’ve been very good at getting heart, lung, liver, because we know that, so I’m not gonna crush that part, I’m gonna basically crush below, I’m gonna crush above, and I’m gonna see if I can get it all intact.”
#5: Kristen Bell
On August 2nd, Kristen Bell said in a video message on Twitter that she supports Planned Parenthood because she wants her daughters to have access to birth control, even though their contraceptive services have dropped significantly in the last few years.

#6: Maggie Gyllenhaal In Glamour Magazine, Maggie Gyllenhaal indicated that she wants Planned Parenthood to continue to receive federal funds. She said, “[Politicians are] working to restrict women’s access to reproductive health services—things like cancer screenings, birth control and abortion care. I’ve been a Planned Parenthood supporter my whole life — since my mom took me to a rally when I was in sixth grade. It’s chilling to think of this resource being taken away.
#7 Katie Walsh
In 2005, Private Practice and Grey’s Anatomy star, Kate Walsh, joined the Planned Parenthood Board of Advocates. She also received the abortion company’s PPFA Maggie Award for an Artist who “Stands Up for Reproductive Health and Freedom.”
#8 Julianne Moore
Actress Julianne Moore is listed on Planned Parenthood’s website as a supporter, and in 2012, was featured in a video supporting Barack Obama and the abortion company.

#9: America Ferrera In 2009, at a Planned Parenthood luncheon, America Ferrera said, “I think that women’s health is an issue that is close to me, because of my community, We’re only as strong as the ability we have to take care of the women who are giving birth and nurturing the next generation.” Ferrera is an actress known for her work in “Ugly Betty.” Earlier this month, she urged her Twitter followers to ask U.S. Senators to stand with Planned Parenthood.
#10: Connie Britton
In 2013, Friday Night Lights star, Connie Britton, partnered with Planned Parenthood to release a “WWTD? What Would Tami Taylor Do?” T-shirt in support of Wendy Davis, the unsuccessful gubernatorial candidate who argued in a 12–hour filibuster for late-term abortion.
