With all the celebrity support Planned Parenthood is getting, it’s hard to believe the claims that the abortion chain needs taxpayer dollars to operate.
Abortion advocate and actress Lena Dunham is one of the abortion group’s most vocal supporters, and she launched another project this week to support it.
A fluff piece at People reports Dunham is “teaming up with Planned Parenthood” and selling some of her clothes “to make sure that new dress you buy straight out of her closet doesn’t just look good, it does good, too.”
“Good” to Dunham and People Magazine means supporting the No. 1 abortion business in the United States. According to abortion group’s annual report, 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.
The “Girls” actress plans to sell 169 pieces of clothing from her closet on the consignment site The Real Real and give the entire commission to Planned Parenthood, according to the report. Dunham said she will include a note with every piece that explains where she wore it.
Dunham said of her new project: “I always thought I was going to hoard all my clothes for my future daughter, and now I understand, especially being a woman with a reproductive illness, I may end up with an adopted son, I may end up with a daughter who doesn’t identify with her gender at birth. You can’t live for the future that does not yet exist. I have to take all this good fashion fortune I’ve had and spread it.”

Celebrities, sports teams and some of the richest people in the world have been lining up to support the abortion chain Planned Parenthood. In contrast, the average American does not want their tax dollars to support abortion.
Some supporters deceive themselves by saying Planned Parenthood provides health care to women, but its real focus is aborting unborn babies. In March, Planned Parenthood 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.
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.”
Meanwhile, Planned Parenthood’s own annual reports show decreases in contraception, breast exams, cancer screenings, pap smears and overall patient numbers.
Celebrities who truly want to support women’s health care should do what Congress is planning – fund community health centers that outnumber Planned Parenthoods by 20 to one. These centers offer much more comprehensive care to women and families, but not abortions.
