If you’ve been on the internet recently, you may have seen the two stomach-churning undercover videos of Planned Parenthood officials casually discussing the sale of body parts from aborted fetuses, in which they tout their “less crunchy” techniques to get “whole specimens," and haggle over prices because "I want a Lamborghini.”
On the right, this had led to calls to investigate and defund the organization, which receives over $500 million in taxpayer money every year.
But for Lena Dunham, it’s a reason to rally around the organization.
On Wednesday, she asked her Twitter followers to “educate” themselves on the “attacks against Planned Parenthood,” linking to an article depicting the videos as “dishonest”:
Educate yourself on the reality of the attacks against Planned Parenthood: http://t.co/fPe0HGyCXO— Lena Dunham (@lenadunham) July 22, 2015
Planned Parenthood has stood by women and their families for nearly 100 years. Now it's our turn to #standwithPP— Lena Dunham (@lenadunham) July 22, 2015
Dunham has a long and chummy relationship with Planned Parenthood. Last year she promoted the organization during her book tour for Not That Kind of Girl, stating that “With the recent Supreme Court decision in the Hobby Lobby case, it’s critical that we all do everything we can to ensure that women have access to the full range of reproductive and sexual health care without their bosses or politicians or judges getting in the way.”
She then enlisted her celebrity friends to wear “Lena <3 Planned Parenthood” shirts:
Maybe we’ll get a special edition #PPSellsBodyParts but #LenaLovesThemAnyway shirt?
