Did you know that Planned Parenthood performed lifesaving work?
Neither did I.
However, according to Hollywood actor Tony Goldwyn, well known for a variety of roles over the years and presently a mainstay of the popular ABC television show Scandal (on which he actually plays the President of the United States), that’s precisely what they do.
According to a fair number of news outlets, including MRC NewsBusters, Goldwyn garnered a good bit of attention at the recent Paleyfest television festival where he was spotted wearing a Planned Parenthood pin. The actor subsequently gave an interview to Glamour, in which he elaborated on his allegiance to the controversial organization.
“There’s been a lot of disinformation about Planned Parenthood and the focus of the lifesaving work that they do for women’s health care,” said Goldwyn.
Continuing, Goldwyn said, “I saw a much-publicized image of all those white men sitting around in a room at the White House talking about what should be done about women’s health care, and I thought I would step up [by wearing this and speaking out]. If Planned Parenthood is defunded, millions of women, particularly women struggling economically, are going to be in serious trouble. And the truth is, there will be far more abortions performed—and unsafe ones as a result. The people that are antiabortion actually are sabotaging their own moral stance by taking this position.”
So, even those who are against abortion should still support Planned Parenthood because the abortions they perform are nice and clean.
How do you argue with that kind of logic?
