In a detestable, but characteristically callous, tweet a Planned Parenthood branch in Pennsylvania tweeted that Disney needs to create a princess “who’s had an abortion”.
The tweet, which was ostensibly part of a Twitter trend in which users sarcastically or humorously tweet what kind of princess Disney should create next.
The full text of the since deleted post:
The tweet received immediate backlash and disgust for its unconscionable insensitivity. In response, Melissa Reed, Planned Parenthood’s president and CEO said
“Today, we joined an ongoing Twitter conversation about the kinds of princesses people want to see in an attempt to make a point about the importance of telling stories that challenge stigma and championing stories that too often don’t get told. Upon reflection, we decided that the seriousness of the point we were trying to make was not appropriate for the subject matter or context, and we removed the tweet.”
No, Planned Parenthood, we do not need to use children’s entertainment to push acceptance of the grave evil of abortion. We do not need a character that pushes the agenda to eliminate innocent children, the very audience that Disney princesses are created for. This is the insanity of Planned Parenthood.
