Why so many celebrities are jumping up to support the abortion chain Planned Parenthood is baffling.
The latest to join the Planned Parenthood abortion crusade is Kristen Stewart, best know for her role in the “Twilight” films.
KFOG reports Stewart recently directed a music video for a project to support the abortion chain. She and the Scottish band Chvrches worked together to create a video for the band’s song “Down Side of Me.”
The music video will be included in “7-Inches for Planned Parenthood,” a collaboration album by celebrity artists to promote the abortion chain. It is not apparent that the music video or the song has anything to do with Planned Parenthood. The video primarly shows close-up shots of lead singer Lauren Mayberry’s hands and eyes as she sings.
“I ended up with a pretty simple but definitive narrative arc that highlights the cause in a sweet but quiet and confronting way,” Stewart said of the video, according to Songfacts.
Originally, “Down Side Of Me” was recorded on Chvrches second album Every Open Eye (2015). Mayberry speaks about working on the project:
“‘Down Side Of Me’ was not written specifically for this project but I really like how the lyrics can be interpreted in a way that supports the goal of the project as a whole. We should all be able to have faith that our governments are working in our best interests – and if they aren’t then, they should be challenged and held to account. ‘I’ll believe that you’re all that you said you would be.’”
John Legend, Foo Fighters, Mary J. Blige and comedian Zach Galifianakis also are involved in the larger project, LifeNews reported in April.
Another group of celebrities, including Lady Gaga, Tom Petty and R.E.M.’s Michael Stipe, recently autographed a guitar to be raffled off as part of the “7-inches” benefit for Planned Parenthood, according to Under the Radar Magazine. Other famous artists involved with the project include Nancy Sinatra, Katy Perry and Smashing Pumpkins’ Nicole Fiorentino.
When they announced the project earlier this year, the stars never mention the word “abortion” in their publicity efforts, though abortion is really what Planned Parenthood is all about.
The project is the celebrities’ response to plans to defund Planned Parenthood of nearly half a billion tax dollars. Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion provider in the U.S., and has been caught in numerous scandals, including potentially illegal sales of aborted babies’ body parts, Medicaid fraud and failures to report suspected sex trafficking and sexual abuse of minors.
Planned Parenthood could continue to receive tax dollars if it stops its abortion practices and starts focusing on legitimate health care, but it has refused to do so.
The abortion group’s own reports show its focus is not on women’s health care, but on abortions. Non-abortion services have been dropping steadily at Planned Parenthood in the past decade, but its abortion numbers remain high – around 300,000 abortions per year.
Abortion, not women’s health care, is what these celebrities really are supporting.
