New Hollywood stars seem to be jumping up to promote the abortion chain Planned Parenthood every week, but actress Olivia Wilde has been a long-time supporter.
At the Tony Awards on Sunday, the actress wore a small gold pin of the abortion chain’s logo to show her support. Hollywood icon Sally Field and “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” star Rachel Bloom also wore the pro-abortion pins to the awards show.
Wilde, best known for her role as Dr. Remy Hadley on the TV show “House,” has been an abortion advocate for years. Last fall, when she was pregnant with her own unborn child, she advocated for pro-abortion lawmakers ahead of the upcoming the November election.
As Katie Yoder of Newsbusters wrote:
In a YouTube video released [in October 2016], the 32-year-old actress encouraged Americans to vote based on the issues they care about. For her, she said, that means voting on “reproductive rights.” (She avoided the word “abortion.”)
“This election cycle I’m thinking a lot about reproductive rights,” she began. “Everyone’s right to plan when they want to have a family.”
The topic, Wilde said, was “on my mind” because “I’m literally about to have a baby.” The star first announced in April that she was expecting her second child, a girl, with fiancé Jason Sudeikis.
For Wilde, “reproductive rights” meant “to be able to decide exactly how and when and why and where I want to have a baby” – choices she also called “a basic human right.”
Celebrities who advocate for Planned Parenthood claim they are helping women access health care, but their support largely goes toward abortions.
Planned Parenthood aborts more unborn babies than any other group in the United States. In 2015, it performed 328,348 abortions on unborn babies, nearly 5,000 more than the previous year.
Abortion is Planned Parenthood’s main business, and its leaders have refused to give it up to focus on providing real health care to women. Earlier this year, Planned Parenthood leaders refused an offer for an increase in tax funding if they stopped doing abortions. 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 chain even throws pizza parties to reward employees who exceed their abortion quotas, and in 2013, Planned Parenthood gave one of its Colorado clinics an award for “for exceeding abortion visits.”
Rich and influential celebrities like Wilde could be supporting hundreds of wonderful organizations that help women and children. Instead, they are supporting a group that kills babies in the womb and leaves many of their mothers to suffer emotional wounds from what they were told was their “choice.”
