There have got to be hundreds of reasons why the abortion chain Planned Parenthood should no longer receive Americans’ tax dollars.
From the killing of unborn babies and trading of their parts, to sexual abuse scandals and botched abortions, to Medicaid fraud and huge salaries, lavish offices and parties, Planned Parenthood is not the warm and glowing women’s health care non-profit that it claims to be.
Yet, the wealthy Hollywood elite continue to line up to give the abortion chain donations.
Last week, CBS/Warner Bros. and actress Allison Janney of the CBS sitcom “Mom” launched a new campaign to support Planned Parenthood, the blog Monsters & Critics reports.
CBS is paying for the campaign with money that it typically would use to promote Janney as an Emmy award nominee. She is nominated for best comedy supporting actress for her role in “Mom.”
The network said it also will match any donation made to the abortion group through the campaign.
In May, Janney and others involved in “Mom” also donated $250,000 from their show’s Emmy campaign money to support Planned Parenthood.
Janney has supported the abortion chain for years, according to EW. She also has close connections to it. Janney said her great-grandmother worked with Margaret Sanger, a eugenicist who founded Planned Parenthood. She said her grandmother and mother also worked with the abortion chain.
“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 in June.
It’s quite ironic that support for an abortion chain comes from people involved in a sitcom called “Mom.” Planned Parenthood destroys the special relationship between mother and child hundreds of thousands of times every year through abortion.
The celebrities claimed they are supporting women’s health care, but their support really is propping up the largest abortion chain in the U.S.
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 Planned Parenthood’s true focus.
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.
