Hollywood has love affair with abortion and the Planned Parenthood abortion business.
In 2015, 11 videos released by the Center for Medical Progress uncovered shocking details about the abortion industry and prompted numerous investigations and efforts to de-fund the abortion giant Planned Parenthood.
As the videos were released showing top Planned Parenthood officials discussing the sale of aborted babies’ body parts, abortion became one of the most talked-about topics of the year. The videos were no less controversial in Hollywood, where many celebrities added their influential voices to the abortion debate.
Here is a list of 13 of the most the most vocal abortion advocates in Hollywood this year:
The actress has been one of Planned Parenthood’s most reliable celebrity spokeswomen. After the abortion chain began to feel threatened by efforts to take away its government funding, it recruited Johansson to appear on a video explaining why she supports abortion.
“Planned Parenthood stands up for me,” Johansson insisted on the video.
Johansson, who has starred in several Hollywood hits including Iron Man, Lost in Translation and The Avengers, previously 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!”
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.
In an interview earlier in December, Dunham said she would totally “punch” those “ignorant” pro-lifers “in the face” if they questioned Planned Parenthood. Dunham also is campaigning for Hillary Clinton, who supports abortion for any reason through all nine months of pregnancy.
A disappointment to many, this beloved Hollywood actress revealed her support for the abortion giant in November during Glamour magazine’s 25th annual Women of the Year Awards.
“No mother in the world wants her daughter to have fewer rights than she did,” Witherspoon said, referring to the Planned Parenthood scandal. “It’s up to us to make sure that every single girl in this world can control their bodies and their lives and futures.”
Witherspoon received the Hollywood Hero award. Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood, also was one of Glamour’s award recipients in 2015.
The event appears to have been the first time Witherspoon publicly vocalized her support for abortion.
A well-known Hollywood writer and producer, Whedon recently headlined an end-of-the-year donation campaign to benefit the Planned Parenthood abortion business. Whedon co-wrote the popular Toy Story films, as well as TV shows Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Firefly.
The donation campaign is tragically ironic given that Toy Story and its sequels are movies that celebrate children and the role toys play in providing their enjoyment — where as Planned Parenthood is an abortion company that makes a living killing children.
The Hunger Games and Pitch Perfect star promoted Planned Parenthood and its abortion practices in a piece with Cosmopolitan magazine earlier this year. Additionally, in 2012, she was featured in a video for Barack Obama and Planned Parenthood explaining that less than 5 percent of the abortion giant’s services are “controversial,” referring to abortion.
In October, The Good Wife actress gush to ABC’s Nightline about a pro-abortion campaign called #ShoutYourAbortion, which encouraged women to share their positive abortion stories.
“Abortion is not some crazy weird last resort,” Plimpton said. “It is a normal part of women’s medical lives. [B]ecause I did have two abortions as a young woman, I feel that my ability to access that kind of medical care made it possible for me to live out my dreams and do what I really wanted to do with my life.”
Plimpton, who had an abortion at Planned Parenthood, also insulted pro-lifers, saying, “These are not the brightest bulbs that we’re dealing with here.”
Best known for her role as Laura Ingalls Wilder on the TV series Little House on the Prairie, Gilbert has become a vocal advocate for abortion in her adult life.
Gilbert recently criticized Michigan Congressman Mike Bishop for voting to de-fund Planned Parenthood. She plans to run against him in the next election.
“Mike Bishop and the House GOP voted to de-fund Planned Parenthood,” she said. “Their vote put health care for thousands of women in Michigan at risk. Let’s tell Mike Bishop and the GOP to stop trying to defund Planned Parenthood, and get back to work!”
Melissa’s sister, Sarah Gilbert, is also a huge supporter of Planned Parenthood and recently participated in its #StandWithPP social media campaign.
Outrage erupted against the ABC show in November after it 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.
Stars Kerry Washington, Bellamy Young, Katie Lowes and Darby Stanchfield all praised the episode and the abortion business Planned Parenthood after the show aired, The Daily Mail reports.
Washington tweeted #IstandWithMellie and #IstandWithPlannedParenthood, while Young tweeted that she was “so proud to speak on ur behalf 2nd @PP & for all women who deserve access to basic health care. TY for all you do. #PlannedParenthood”
Tony Goldwyn, who played the father of the aborted baby, told Pulse that he was shocked but “impressed by the boldness” of the episode.
The Irish actor recently issued a call to legalize abortion in his home nation. Neeson, known for his roles in popular action flicks, recorded a new ad for Amnesty International that criticized the staunchly pro-life nation for prohibiting killing babies in abortions in virtually every circumstance.
In the ad, Neeson essentially said laws protecting babies from abortions are antiquated and should be repealed. Neeson doesn’t appear in the ad, but his unmistakable voice is clearly heard as the narrator of it.
