Planned Parenthood destroys the special relationship between mother and child hundreds of thousands of times every year through abortion.
But the cast and producers of a TV show highlighting that one-of-a-kind relationship are giving big bucks to help the abortion chain continue its deadly work.
The AP reports actress Allison Janney, who stars in the CBS show “Mom,” visited Planned Parenthood’s Manhattan offices Tuesday to deliver a $250,000 donation. Show co-producer Gemma Baker joined her for the visit with the abortion group’s CEO Cecile Richards, according to the report.
“I think for most of the viewers who are hard-core fans of ‘Mom,’ our support of Planned Parenthood will give them all the more reason to watch,” Janney said.
A long-time supporter of the abortion group, Janney said her great-grandmother worked with Margaret Sanger, a eugenicist who founded Planned Parenthood. The actress said her grandmother and mother also worked with Planned Parenthood.
Baker also has close connections to the abortion chain. She said she used to work for Planned Parenthood.
In May, Romper reported the “Mom” stars’ plans to donate $250,000 to Planned Parenthood from the money they receive to campaign for Emmy awards.

“We don’t NOT want to be considered for Emmys,” Janney told the AP. “But we decided to use the money instead to support Planned Parenthood.”
Baker said show writer Chuck Lorre, whose work also includes “The Big Bang Theory” and “Two and a Half Men,” came up with the idea.
“Our characters have dealt with teen pregnancy and breast cancer and sexual assault,” Baker said. “This just seemed like a way of standing with an organization that is providing health care to millions of women.”
Abortions, not health care, are what Planned Parenthood primarily provides to women. The abortion group’s annual report shows it performed 328,348 abortions on unborn babies in 2015, nearly 5,000 more than the previous year. Planned Parenthood does about one third of all abortions in the U.S., while receiving about half a billion taxpayer dollars each year.
In March, it refused to give up its abortion work and focus on providing true health care to low-income women. President Donald Trump offered to support an increase in taxpayer funding to Planned Parenthood if it stopped doing abortions, but Planned Parenthood refused.
CEO Cecile Richards called the offer “obscene and insulting,” making it very clear that abortions – not women’s health care – are essential to Planned Parenthood.
The abortion group’s annual reports show patient numbers and non-abortion health care services are dropping while its abortion numbers remain steady.
A congressional investigation into the abortion business involving its sales of aborted baby parts concluded with lawmakers recommended that Congress defund it. Planned Parenthood also has been caught in numerous scandals involving Medicaid fraud and failures to report suspected sex trafficking and sexual abuse of minors.
Plans to defund Planned Parenthood would redirect tax dollars to community health centers to help ensure women and families have access to quality care. A national survey found that community health centers provide more comprehensive health care than Planned Parenthood, and they outnumber the abortion group’s facilities by 20 to one.
