Planned Parenthood’s New Low: Wants a ‘Disney Princess Who Has Had an Abortion’

A since-deleted tweet from the biggest supporter of snuffing out the life of the unborn is nothing less than startling

Just when you thought Planned Parenthood could not possibly sink any lower — it did.

On Tuesday morning, Planned Parenthood Keystone, a branch of the left-leaning group in Lehigh County, Pennsylvania, tweeted out a deeply disturbing list of “needs.”

After the jaw-dropping tweet received serious blowback even from liberal supporters, Planned Parenthood Keystone deleted it — shocker. LifeNews screenshot it before it was removed, though. And Prager U retweeted the atrocity as well, alerting followers and others to the organization’s agenda.

There will be no hiding from this one. In the tweet, the organization said, “We need a Disney Princess who’s had an abortion.”

The tweet then went on to discuss the need for Disney princesses who are pro-choice, undocumented immigrants, union workers — and trans.

Let’s face it, folks: Planned Parenthood is essentially an arm of the Democratic National Committee at this point. It operates as a voice for liberals who are OK with taking the life of the unborn merely because a woman may choose to do so or feel like it.

Do you think Donald Trump will be indicted?

Promoting abortion-positive messages to toddlers and schoolchildren (and their parents, family and friends)? Seriously?

Even if it was meant as a joke — not OK.

Dan Bartkowiak, director of communications at the Pennsylvania Family Institute, which works to strengthen families in America by helping to restore traditional principles and values in this country, confirmed to LifeZette that its employees saw the Planned Parenthood tweet when it first went live. “One of our staff members follows each account — saw it this morning and sent it around to our staff,” said Bartkowiak.

“@PPKeystone is the account for Planned Parenthood Keystone, which is one of three state affiliates for Planned Parenthood in Pennsylvania,” Bartkowiak continued.

Some sources online, including National Review’s Jonah Goldberg, had become suspicious this afternoon of the over-the-top tweet, saying it may have originated from a troll account.

The PA Family Institute was among the first to notice the egregious tweet and to sound the alarm. Of the tweet’s authenticity, Bartkowiak said they are “absolutely 100 percent sure.”

Late in the day on Tuesday, Planned Parenthood issued a statement: “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,” Melissa Reed, Planned Parenthood’s president and CEO, wrote in an email to USA TODAY. “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.”
