Abortion Activist Sells IUD Earrings to Benefit Planned Parenthood

The odd ways abortion advocates try to promote Planned Parenthood and deflect from its abortion business just keep coming.

Medical student Natasha Miller wanted to create a visible way for abortion advocates to show their support of Planned Parenthood in the wake of the violence that occurred last Friday around its Colorado Springs abortion clinic, the website Mic.com reports.

So, the young Chicago woman began marketing bizarre earrings modeled after the IUD birth control device and selling them to raise money for the abortion business, according to Mic. From now until Dec. 20, she giving $5 to Planned Parenthood for every pair of earrings she sells, according to the report.

“The IUD jewelry is about educating people about not just IUDs, but about women’s health and the choices we have for birth control,” Miller told Mic. “And that’s very much what Planned Parenthood offers.”

Miller makes the IUD-shaped earrings using beads and copper wire. She told the website that she first created the odd jewelry in 2014 for her boss, “who’s a big IUD advocate.”

The IUD, or intrauterine device, is known as a long acting reversible contraception, and may act as an abortifacient.

Miller attempted to deflect from the topic of abortion, saying, “Planned Parenthood is just associated with abortion, [but] I wanted to get the word out that it’s also associated with birth control and other reproductive health issues.”

Abortion is big business for Planned Parenthood, however. It performs more abortions than any other group in the U.S., and several years ago began requiring that all of its affiliates do abortions.



Miller’s IUD jewelry promotion seems hokey and callous, especially so soon after the tragic shooting claimed three lives and injured nine more.

And although abortion advocates have been jumping to conclusions about Planned Parenthood being targeted, the motives of the shooter remain unclear. Planned Parenthood officials have confirmed none of the people killed in the shooting or 9 victims who were injured were Planned Parenthood abortion clinic staff or patients.

Authorities have not released a motive for the shooter as to whether he actually targeted the abortion business. And, according to the Associated Press, all of the shooting took place outside of the Planned Parenthood abortion clinic, not in it.
