Planned Parenthood sang the praises of the ABC show “Scandal” on Friday after the TV show glorified a main character’s abortion to the tune of “Silent Night” and the defeat of a bill to de-fund the abortion giant.
“We just hope those in Congress — and throughout the nation — who are steadfast on rolling the clock back on reproductive health care access are taking note” of the show, Planned Parenthood said in a statement.
According to The Hill, the show was a direct response to pro-lifers’ efforts to defund the abortion giant, after a series of undercover videos showed top Planned Parenthood officials haggling over the price of aborted babies’ body parts and admitting to changing the abortion procedure to better harvest the parts.
“In the show that aired Thursday night, Republican Sen. Mellie Grant, played by Bellamy Young, successfully filibusters a bill that would defund Planned Parenthood,” according to The Hill.

Later in the episode, Olivia Pope, played by Kerry Washington, is shown aborting her unborn baby at Planned Parenthood as the song “Silent Night” plays in the background.
The episode was a sickening hour-long “advertisement for Planned Parenthood,” Alexa Moutevelis wrote for Newsbusters.
“Between the execution of a man that opens the graphic clip below, the talk of ‘soft tissue,’ saying family destroys you, watching a doctor take his instruments between Olivia’s legs, and the hint of a smile on her lips at the end, it is a truly vile scene, stomach churning scene,” Moutevelis wrote.
Earlier this week, Senate Republicans promised to fast-track a bill to de-fund Planned Parenthood for a vote after Thanksgiving. The Senate will vote on the reconciliation bill the House passed at the end of October that will use the reconciliation process to de-fund the abortion company caught selling the body parts of aborted babies.
