Abortion advocate Lena Dunham released a new celebrity-backed, animated short film this week that celebrates the work of Planned Parenthood.
Her film “100 Years” explains the history of the abortion business, beginning with founder Margaret Sanger and continuing through today, according to the Hollywood Reporter. It addresses Roe v. Wade, the Hyde Amendment and other abortion-related issues that Planned Parenthood has been involved with in the past 100 years.
“The spirit behind this video will hopefully take us into the Women’s March on Washington this weekend, where we will be showing our new president that we’re not going to allow a hundred years of progress to disappear overnight,” Dunham said when she released the film on Tuesday.
Joining her in making the pro-abortion film were celebrity actors and directors Meryl Streep, America Ferrera, Hari Nef, Mindy Kaling, Jennifer Lawrence, Constance Wu and J.J. Abrams, according to the report.
Here’s more from The Blaze:
It acknowledges Sanger’s association with the eugenics philosophy with an “ugh,” but defends her by saying that eugenics was an “immensely popular social movement” at the time. Eugenics is the belief that human beings may be perfected by barring those deemed unfit or undesirable from having children.
The film praises Sanger as a “champion of progress” in spite of her “conflicting legacy.”
A number of Hollywood stars have been promoting the abortion giant’s work since voters elected Republican majorities to Congress and the White House. Efforts to defund Planned Parenthood of its nearly half a billion dollars in taxpayer funding already have begun.
Dunham said she hopes the film will shed a positive light on Planned Parenthood and its “remarkable history.” She boasted that her film is the “best cartoon about the history of reproductive freedom ever made.”
However, she left out one key aspect of Planned Parenthood: abortion. Though mentioned, Planned Parenthood’s abortion focus is not apparent in the film. The group aborts approximately 320,000 unborn babies each year. Throughout its history, it has destroyed about 7 million unborn babies’ lives through abortion.
It’s an unflattering legacy that abortion advocates like Dunham and her fellow celebrities would like Americans to ignore.
