Planned Parenthood behind ‘Girls’ abortion storyline

plannedparenthoodNo surprise here: we have confirmation that Hollywood is carrying the water for Planned Parenthood and the pro-choice movement.

‘Girls’ actress Gillian Jacobs, in an interview with, confirmed that a storyline this past season involving her character was crafted in consultation with Planned Parenthood officials. In the show, Jacobs’ character, Mimi-Rose Howard, informs her boyfriend (played by Adam Driver) that she cannot go for a run because she has just had an abortion. The revelation is delivered in a matter-of-fact way, and fans of the show praised it for being earnest on the subject. According to Jacobs:

I thought that that storyline was handled with a lot of sensitivity, and I know that Jenni Konner and Lena Dunham worked with Planned Parenthood and they helped on the script. I think it was a very different sort of story than we normally see in that area on television. I thought it was very well done.

As the largest abortion provider in the country, Planned Parenthood makes over $164 million a year on abortions, accounting for over half of the revenue their clinics nationwide take in. With that much money at stake, isn’t it to their advantage to portray abortion as no big deal? Shouldn’t Planned Parenthood’s participation be viewed as product placement?

By the way, Jacobs’ “sensitive” portrayal of a woman who isn’t really bothered by abortion is earning talk of an Emmy nomination, mostly from pro-choice Hollywood critics who already overrate Lena Dunham’s show, yet look the other way on her admission that she sexually abused her younger sister when she was young.
