An alleged victim of Harvey Weinstein gave a horrifying description of how the Hollywood mogul and Planned Parenthood supporter allegedly raped her in 2006.
Mimi Haleyi, a former production assistant who worked with Weinstein’s company, is the seventh woman to accuse Weinstein of rape, the Daily Mail reports. The actress said she was looking for new work opportunities in 2006 when he allegedly forced himself upon her.
Weinstein, known for movies such as “Pulp Fiction,” “Shakespeare in Love,” “The English Patient” and “The King’s Speech,” faces numerous accusations of sexual assault and rape. He has denied all claims of non-consensual sex.
He has been a big supporter of Democrats such as Bill and Hillary Clinton, and has spoken highly of the abortion chain Planned Parenthood.
In a new interview, Haleyi accused Weinstein of raping her in 2006 in his New York City loft. She claims she refused several sexual advances from the film producer before he forced himself on her in his child’s bedroom.
“He wouldn’t take no for an answer and backed me into a room which was not lit, but looked like a kids’ bedroom with kids’ drawings on the walls,” Haleyi said.
She said she tried to stop Weinstein, telling him that she was menstruating; but he did not listen. She accused Weinstein of ripping out her tampon and then forcing himself upon her.
“He held me down on the bed, I tried to get him off me and kept asking him to stop but it was impossible. He was extremely persistent and physically overpowering,” she said.
“He then orally forced himself on me while I was on my period. I was mortified. I was in disbelief,” she said.
Haleyi said she only told a few friends about the experience until recently. She said she decided to come forward with the allegations to support other rape survivors.
“I decided to share my experience today in support of all the other women that have come forward and all women everywhere who have been subjected to any type of sexual harassment or sexual assault,” she said.
As the allegations grow, numerous groups that have received support from Weinstein are trying to distance themselves from him. Among them is the top abortion business in America: Planned Parenthood.
Planned Parenthood claims Weinstein is not a donor. However, in 2016, Weinstein attended its 100th anniversary gala and bid $100,000 for a painting during its benefit art auction. After the allegations arose, Planned Parenthood said Weinstein’s bid went “unfulfilled,” and he is not a donor.
But Weinstein also has supported the abortion chain in other ways. Back in 2012, he spoke highly of Planned Parenthood when he hosted an expensive fundraising banquet for pro-abortion President Barack Obama at his waterfront home in Connecticut, the Hartford Courant reports.
“Leading with your heart is the utmost for this president,” Weinstein said in his introduction of Obama. “Fighting for Planned Parenthood and protecting women’s rights, this president has fought the good fight.”
The Hartford Courant, which reported the statement, pointed out: “Weinstein’s comments that night about ‘protecting women’s rights’ provide a sharp contrast to the widespread allegations of sexual harassment that have been levied against him in recent days by multiple actresses.”
While none of the accusations against Weinstein involve abortion, sexual abuse and abortion frequently are connected. Legalized abortion provides a convenient way for sexual abusers to cover up their crimes, and abortion clinics have been caught agreeing to help cover up sexual abuse.
