The popular television show “Scandal” on ABC has pro-life people up in arms about the brash, pro-abortion messaging of its latest show.

The Nov. 19 episode took on Congressional efforts to de-fund Planned Parenthood and glorified main character Olivia Pope’s abortion to the tune of “Silent Night.” The episode was a sickening hour-long “advertisement for Planned Parenthood,” Alexa Moutevelis wrote for Newsbusters.

The Planned Parenthood abortion business ultimately praised the episode and actors on the show defended the decision to show the killing of an unborn baby in an abortion during the Christmas song.

That the abortion giant loved the episode is no surprise given its content, but it’s also no surprise since Scandal’s creator and producer is on the board of directors of one of its affiliates. As LifeNews blogger Ryan Bomberger pointed out on Twitter, Scandal creator Shonda Rimes sits on the baord of Planned Parenthood Los Angeles:


In an email to LifeNews, Bill Donohue of the Catholic League uncovered more about who Rhimes is and why she is a staunch abortion advocate.

“What makes Rhimes tick? After doing a little digging, it appears that libertinism and narcissism are her most defining qualities. Throw in a heady dose of juvenile rebelliousness, and the composite picture that emerges is as revealing as it is sickening,” he said.

“The abortion episode was a natural for Rhimes: she previously showed her fondness for abortion by featuring it in her hit show, “Grey’s Anatomy.” In real life, she sits on the board of Planned Parenthood’s Los Angeles affiliate; this is a curious decision for a black woman—the organization was founded on racist principles,” Donohue continued.

“Why the need to play “Silent Night” while the kid is killed? Rhimes is angry—it’s payback time. She went to a Catholic high school where she was disciplined for wearing “too-short skirts.” She never got over it. Hence, her juvenile rebelliousness. The composite picture isn’t pretty—it’s a mess,” he said.

Rhimes has three daughters and no husband and she talked about that in an interview.

“I have never wanted to get married. I love having boyfriends. I love dating. I do not want a husband in my house,” she said.

Rhimes is no stranger to popular television programs. She is the is the creator and currently executive producer and head writer of Grey’s Anatomy and Rhimes created and produced the Grey’s Anatomy spin-off series Private Practice Then, in 2011, ABC ordered Rhimes’s pilot script Scandal to series. Unfortunately, it appears Rhimes is committed to pushing her pro-abortion agenda in them.
