What a truly wonderful time it is to be alive. Not only can you get abortion medication in the mail while remaining safe and comfortable in quarantine, you also get your favorite Hollywood stars, like Jamie Lee Curtis, to give you friendly and smiling advice on setting up a “virtual meeting” with abortion doctors, so that you’ll never be confused on how to get rid of your unborn child, no matter where you are.
The Knives Out and Halloween actress announced via Twitter that she had been named the “proud” “spokesperson” for the baby-killing organization’s “Telehealth” program (‘Knives Out for the Unborn” would be a catchy name for it). In a video posted to the platform on April 17, Curtis explained how women seeking “reproductive health” guidance without access to a clinic could “log on” to a designated Planned Parenthood site for a “virtual meeting” with abortion doctors.
“Hi there! It’s Jamie Lee Curtis,” the actress began, giving viewers a warm greeting from quarantine in her home. “I am here today on behalf of Planned Parenthood to tell you about telehealth. It’s their way of helping you through this crisis.” And isn’t that something? PP would just love to add to the pandemic’s death count.
The actress explained “Telehealth,” saying, “It offers you to log on and make an appointment and then have a private, one-on-one sesson with a trained and licensed healthcare professional and talk about your healthcare needs.” Curtis added that it’s done “in complete privacy and safety and it also reduces the load on clinics and hospitals who are dealing everyday with COVID-19 patients.”
The actress concluded the spiel by providing the number to Planned Parenthood’s Telehealth program and details on where patients can log in online. She then signed off saying, “Stay safe, wash your hands, stay home and God bless you all.” Yes, God bless us and the lengths we will go to eradicate the unborn life He has given us. Atrocious.
Though this is just one of the makeshift efforts PP has come up with for women who might not feel safe venturing to an abortion clinic in the midst of quarantine, and as a way to still offer services in states like Texas, Alabama and Arkansas, to name a few, that have deemed abortion clinics to be “non-essential” businesses.
Though the left has been adamant that abortions during the quarantine are at the height of necessity. One odious talking point in particular came from Governor Gretchen Whitmer (D-MI) who claimed that abortions “are life-sustaining,” and refused suspending abortion procedures. This resulted in the horrible irony that the pool of medical supplies for necessary procedures during a pandemic would go to saving coronavirus victims and killing unborn babies.
Back to Jamie Lee Curtis. This isn’t her first Planned Parenthood rodeo. The actress participated in a tele-thon-style Facebook Live event to benefit Planned Parenthood and the ACLU back in 2017, along with other famous faces like Jane Fonda, Judd Apatow, Patricia Arquette and Tim Robbins. Though this celebrity-sponsored telehealth thing, man, this sounds like the future. Maybe in 10 years, we’ll have Daniel Craig guiding us through DIY euthanasia at home.
UPDATE: Liberal news outlet AFP ran a false factcheck on this article on May 15, 2020.
It contended that the headline was false because Jamie Lee Curtis did not introduce a Planned Parenthood service that arranges for women to have at-home abortions or encourage women to use it. But that’s exactly what Planned Parenthood’s new program does.
Planned Parenthood announced its plan to offer telehealth medical services in all 50 states by the end of April. Telehealth means appointments can be done via online video conference rather than in-person. CBS News has confirmed that drug-induced abortions are part of the expansion, where possible.
See https://twitter.com/byKateSmith/status/1250432571751534594 from CBS News reporter Kate Smith, who posted on April 15th confirming abortion is a part of the service.
Further, an article in Time magazine specifically describes a woman using the Planned Parenthood program to arrange an abortion:
In the past, Planned Parenthood affiliates in about half the states offered ways to get birth control through an app, and some offered UTI treatment virtually. But the new telehealth app means that patients will also be able to access services including testing and treatment for sexually-transmitted infections (STIs), HIV testing and prevention, emergency contraception, hormone therapy, vasectomy counseling, abortion counseling, and—like the first responder—prescriptions for abortion pills.
Planned Parenthood customers can make these arrangements at home, drive to pick up the pills, and then complete the abortion process at home, as our headline indicated.
AFP contended the article is false because “at no point in the video does the actress mention abortion or tell women to “kill their babies” at home.”
We never used the term kill their babies in quotes nor contended that is a direct quotation from Curtis. And, as shown, abortion is clearly available via the telehealth program and is already being used for that purpose. This is a summary of what Curtis did – she introduced a new Planned Parenthood service that will facilitate killing babies in at home abortions and she is clearly showing the program and encouraging women to use it.
Meanwhile, AFP’s factcheck admits that the video and service promote abortions:
There is a link at the bottom of the video to the website of the Pasadena & San Gabriel Valley division of Planned Parenthood. The clinic is “currently only accepting urgent visits” for issues including sexually transmitted infection treatment, emergency contraception, and abortion.
“Some health centers also offer counseling and follow-up for abortion services through Telehealth,” she said.
This is another example of liberal factcheckers erroneously targeting pro-life content.
