Miley Cyrus is licking abortion cakes, Ariana Grande is donating entire concert proceeds to the country’s largest abortion vendor, and Busy Philipps can’t figure out in court if babies born alive have the right to stay that way. And former Disney stars doting on abortion is really just the tip of the iceberg.
Just this week, Planned Parenthood very proudly announced that they suckered over 100 musicians into signing a “I’ve Sold My Soul to Planned Parenthood” pledge. Granted, that’s about 3% of big-time musicians. And we know from Planned Parenthood themselves that 3% is no big deal, so I guess we shouldn’t be too worried.
In reality, we shouldn’t be too worried because celebrity endorsement doesn’t make it right. Planned Parenthood is a scandal-ridden, dirty profiteering abortion monster that makes its millions killing babies and hurting women. The only thing they’re good at is marketing (which, especially in their case, is fancy-talk for corporate lying). Just because Lady Gaga thinks they’re cool doesn’t make their scandals magically disappear.
We’re Better Than This
A gaggle of models posed nude for PETA for an ad campaign back in the 90s. Did that make it okay for PETA workers to steal people’s puppies and euthanize them? Soccer player Carli Lloyd did some endorsements for United Airlines. Did that make it acceptable for United to beat up a customer and drag him off their plane? The world’s most famous cricket player is Uber’s brand ambassador overseas. Does that erase their sexual harassment cases?
It’s absurd and fickle to throw trust at a company just because Nicki Minaj told you to. America’s Hollywood elites are practically defined by their own scandals; they’re hardly qualified to serve as the moral compass for the rest of us. If donut-licker Ariana Grande told you to jump off a bridge, would you?
Fame Isn’t Everything
Consider the Lord Acton quote, “Absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men.” Fame is power… which isn’t to say that all famous people are bad. But it takes a superhuman effort to stay grounded and stand up to bullies like Planned Parenthood, especially when millions of people are watching.
It makes complete sense that Planned Parenthood has shifted their focus to artists and show business, since they would not exist without a little creative show business of their own. But it’s indicative of an optimistic trend; by partnering with a frivolous industry, they lessen the seriousness of their own business. Plus, the more time they spend goofing around asking singers to do their dirty work, the less time they’re focusing on stealing more money from taxpayers and threatening politicians.
Give It Up, Y’all
Abortion is “popular” right now. Not the literal act of terminating children, but the issue itself is on the front page everywhere as states like Georgia, Louisiana, Missouri, and Alabama pass abortion limits. Hollywood got on board as a publicity stunt (and because they enjoy yelling and pretending people care about their political views). Democrats then assumed celebrities dictate public opinion, which is a very shaky bet, at best. And they just proceeded to fuel each other until they spiraled out of control, with the average American standing nearby, watching with popcorn.
No data or tangible number suggests that abortion on demand, for all nine months, using any barbaric method, for any reason, and paid for by taxpayers is the opinion of the majority. And all of these public figures are apparently going to have to discover the hard way that this publicity stunt isn’t going to yield much return for them.
