‘AVENGERS’ DIRECTOR: Shutting Down Planned Parenthood is ‘Evil’

(Kaylee McGhee, Liberty Headlines) In light of the U.S. House of Representatives’ healthcare bill that would revoke Planned Parenthood’s funding for one year, Hollywood director and screenwriter Joss Whedon recently released a short film that depicts a world without Planned Parenthood.

'AVENGERS' DIRECTOR: Shutting Down Planned Parenthood is 'Evil'

The three-minute film shows the services women receive from Planned Parenthood, including access to birth control, cancer and STD screenings, mammograms, and sex education. Whedon’s video is an example of the left’s attempt to portray Planned Parenthood as a vital part of society.

“For so many, there’s an obvious tipping point between hope and despair,” the director of “The Avengers” said. “Planned Parenthood is a beacon of hope, and anyone trying to shut it down is committing an act of evil.”

Other conservative groups, however, have debunked the myth that Planned Parenthood is not just an abortion mill. A report by investigative nonprofit Live Action that clears up common public misperceptions about the organization said Planned Parenthood is, in actuality, an abortion corporation.

For example, health care services like cancer screenings have decreased at Planned Parenthood facilities over the past decade, while the tax dollars the organization received steadily increased. Many of its locations do not even offer prenatal care, another myth that Whedon’s video promotes.

And though Planned Parenthood supporters like Whedon claim abortions only make up 3 percent of its total services, the organization performed nearly 323,999 in the most recently reported year. This means Planned Parenthood performed nearly 35 percent of abortions in the country.

Live Action says Planned Parenthood divides the 323,999 abortions by all the 9.4 million services they claim to provide, equating a pregnancy test or a single packet of birth control pills with an abortion, in order to get the mythical 3 percent.

Meanwhile Whedon and other defenders of Planned Parenthood ignore the fact that there are thousands of other clinics that provide comprehensive health care for women.

“Planned Parenthood is really a small part of the national health care picture in America,” said Casey Mattox, a senior counsel at Alliance Defending Freedom who focuses on pro-life issues, to The Daily Signal.

Despite these facts, Planned Parenthood’s supporters continue to insist that it deserves federal funding.

Referring to a proposal in Congress to pull its federal subsidies, Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards said: “What’s going to happen as a result of this is, if this bill ever becomes law, millions of women in this country are going to lose their health care access — not to abortion services, but basic family planning. You know, mammograms, cancer screenings, cervical cancer.”

Access to services like mammograms has been emphasized as the core of Planned Parenthood’s women-centered services. According to The Washington Post, however, less than 3 percent of administered breast exams actually result in mammography referrals. Out of 487,029 breast exams in 2013, about 14,000 resulted in a client referral for mammography and other specialized providers, according to Planned Parenthood.

And the organization provides no mammography services at its clinics, contrary to claims made by many – if not most – of its supporters.

“Planned Parenthood hangs its entire reputation on the claim that they care about women, and that their sole purpose for existing is to provide women with quality healthcare,” said Brittany Hughes of crisis pregnancy support organization Save the Storks. “But they don’t.”

    What is the government funding this for anyway they are already making millions off the sale of BABY PARTS!!!! Wake up ladies your babies are going to be butchered and the parts sold to the highest bidder. What part of that sounds good and right!!!! The continued evil.

    • Gary Smith

      Good ?

      • Sally Koller

        Nothing good about baby murder.

  • Harvey Mitterdorf

    Trying to stop infanticide is evil? Someone has their brain on upside down.

    • Sally Koller

      They know what they are . The trouble is they have brainwashed young people so they think it’s OK! I would not want to have their after life!

  • Hillary gets Trumped!

    May God open the eyes of these people to the horrors of these tiny babies! Also, don’t they know that the workers in the abortion clinics push the girls toward having abortions?! The reason? So they can continue to get their governmental monies every year – they need a certain number of abortions a year to keep their doors open! Like little baby lambs to the slaughter! And what about the girls “led” to have abortions? There will be physical and emotional pain – some may regret it later and some will suffer emotionally for the rest of their lives! Do you read anything good or right in my comments? Just as I thought.

    • Sally Koller

      There are many dangers to women who get abortions and they are not informed. These include a greater risk of breast cancer because they don’t get the protection women get against it when they carry their first child to term. The greatest danger of pregnancy is ectopic pregnancy which can result in death to the mom before she knows she’s pregnant .The greatest cause of ectopic pregnancy is a previous abortion. Other dangers include placenta previa and premature birth of any child born after the abortion. The abortion is always fatal to the innocent defenseless child. Even if they survive the abortion they are then either murdered outright or left to die without care . I find it incomprehensible that most women actually believe abortion is safer than pregnancy. This sick and outrageous lie has been spread by the mass murderers of Planned Parenthood .

  • roger dodger

    Why don’t we simply run these killers out of the USA, with a pitchfork?

  • Larry Brule

    WHATS HE BEEN DRINKING? THEY PROMOTE MURDER OF OUR UNBORN CHILDREN. THIS IS THE WORST GENOCIDE I CAN THINK OF.

    • Wayne The Seine

      Makes Hitler’s work look like child’s play. Hopefully one day historians will walk classes of little children through closed abortion clinics and say to the shocked children, “This is where they murdered the unborn and newborn infants.”

    • Sally Koller

      It’s the number one violation of human rights !

  • Grace Ringor Carag

    Joss Whedon and Planned Parenthood are both evil. Women can get other services from other medical facilities who don’t perform abortions/murders and make money from fetal body parts.

    • Sally Koller

      Exactly!

  • Paul Allen

    Well, I no longer like Joss.

    Saying Planned Parenthood is OK is like saying a murderer should get off scott free because they never murdered anyone previously.

  • Thomas Lee Fugate

    Who cares what these actors and directors say? These are people who think they are brilliant for making money from the initiative of other people.

    • Balder The Brave

      Making money is a good thing. Filling people’s needs and wants should be encouraged. Opinions accepted or rejected or considered.

      • Sally Koller

        As a retired Pediatric nurse I agree with you . Taking care of people’s needs was basically my job. The wants of our patients were also very important to me and my fellow nurses.

  • midogman

    the problem is there are enough empty headed people out there who just might fall for this clown’s musings. never underestimate the power of stupidity in numbers.

    • Fed up!

      Amen 🙏

    • Sally Koller

      That’s because most people are illiterate now because of the left’s agenda to dumb down America with site reading. In 1940 before site reading and only phonics was taught only 4% of Americans were illiterate , including Black Americans . Now functional illiteracy is 55% in this country . They did it on purpose! Like Hillary said ” keep them ignore and happy” when she thought the speaker was turned of!

  • Bill Payne

    He’s in the movie industry who cares what this guy thinks. I guess it’s okay with him to support Baby Murderers, Inc. He’s the one that is evil!

  • George Bernard Vieto

    And this clown is set to write, produce and direct a Batgirl movie? If I were any actress who is assigned to work for him, keep one eye when going to sleep.

  • therealworld

    So receiving birth control and other services from a Qualified Medical Doctor is evil huh??

    • Sally Koller

      If you go to Planned Parenthood and don’t want an abortion they ignore you until you leave. They provide no other services except birth control but if you go in for that they treat you like a third class citizen.

  • therealworld

    I see a plethora of movies to Boycott !!!!!!!!!

    • Wayne The Seine

      I love a good boycott.

  • therealworld

    Now we have the “RIGHT” to stop Abortion. Under Obutcher you were labeled a domestic terrorist

    • Sally Koller

      They are lying! They know exactly what abortion is and because they are getting rich murdering children they don’t care .

  • Kacy Stroud
  • Wayne The Seine

    Makes perfect sense right….. it is evil to refuse to fund the dismemberment and murder of children by their own mothers and then market the parts….yea, right….I’ve got it.

  • davegrille

    No ,it is not evil.

    • Grace Ringor Carag

      What is not evil? Abortion? Murder of babies? Selling of murdered baby parts?
      I don’t want any of my tax dollars spent to support Planned Parenthood.
      Wake up America. Why do you condone murdering of babies?

      • Sally Koller

        The one’s who condone this monstrous evil are getting very wealthy from the blood money. The woman getting abortions have usually been brainwashed into believing that murdering your son or daughter is perfectly acceptable . I don’t know why they don’t know that about two million infertile couples would happily adopt any baby .

      • davegrille

        No, closing it down is not evil.

      • davegrille

        Shutting down Planned Parenthood is not evil.

  • Cas Cusimano

    Guy’s a jerk. PP does 97% abortions and 3% women’s health issues. We have enough clinics to take care of the 3% health concerns without giving millions to the butchers. The only thing PP cares about is making money through abortions and selling baby parts. They are the Adolf Hitlers / Killing Fields of America. Liberal are aligned with them.

    • Fed up!

      No where in the Constitution does it say I am to give any monies to social issues and forgiven governments
      Only and Only for defense and to run basic government operations
      Why can people and politicians get thru their thick skulls that it

      • Sally Koller

        Nowhere in the constitution does it say that children can be murdered without due process of law. Read Ken Forsyth’s book Abuse of Discretion to find out how illegal Roe vs Wade really is !

        • Fed up!

          True did read that either in the Constitution

        • Grace Ringor Carag

          Planned Parenthood and Abortion are so evil and satanic that I cannot imagine what kind of people/women are doing abortions and support it..They must have hearts of the hardest stone on earth and NO Conscience at all. How can they even sleep or eat red meat.Just unimaginable.I know women who had abortions and whose lives were ruined because of their remorse of conscience. So America, let’s stop funding Planned Parenthood and Abortions.

      • Balder The Brave

        They cannot manage to run their own lives and need to be managed by a hopefully benenificent government. But human nature being what it is we have government officials looking after their own interests. Ask Comey about it.

        • Sally Koller

          That’s right Balder . All of the communist left care only about money and power. That’s why Hillary had no platform except for criticizing Donald Trump and his deplorable voters.

    • Sally Koller

      That’s right Cas . Abortion is a money industry which explains why the criminal lying psychopath Hillary Clinton loves it. The reason she lost the election and 54% of the vote of white women is because she cackled at the third debate that a nine months gestation baby can be aborted because “they have no rights “. That’s why President Trump won the third debate no matter what the communist left says.

      • Cadfael

        This gives us a window of what the left has in store for the people of these United States once they have taken all our rights away. Privacy, the 1st and 2nd amendment, property rights, habeas corpus and protection from unreasonable search and seizure are just the beginning. They won’t rest until they can claim for ALL “they have no rights.” Once our Constitution is gone, and not just disregarded and circumvented as it has been for quite some time now – anything goes; see Planned Parenthood and Hillary’s statement! It doesn’t matter the outside veneer: Democrat, Progressive, Social Democrat, Fabian Socialist, Socialist, National Socialist, Open Society Supporter, Fascist, Marxist, Trotskyist, Leninist, Maoist, it is still a Communist!

        • Sally Koller

          Well , maybe we need a new civil war to prevent the destruction of the free world . I just can’t believe that these evil people will win. I have to be an optimistic an maintain the hope that they will ultimately get what’s coming to them.

          • Cadfael

            Just because that’s what they have in store, doesn’t mean we’re buying. In a communist system that’s the only store well stocked. So far, much to their chagrin, they haven’t been able to foist it on us and if the people wake up and resist their attempt to create a society of intellectual and moral morons (hence Common Core, academia, and the “quality” of Hollywood and TV “entertainment”) they will fail.

          • Sally Koller

            I certainly believe they will fail. They have managed to brainwash some of our children but not all. Parents need to be the ones to educate our children so they know the truth and know what’s really going on .

          • Balder The Brave

            Party members always have a Sam’s Club or Cosco for themselves.

          • Sally Koller

            Very green people.

          • Balder The Brave

            Then support the Article V, Convention of States. conventionofstates.com

          • Sally Koller

            Thanks Balder , I signed up to volunteer !

      • nocbsfan

        Yep, charging a lot of money to erase a mistake.

        • Sally Koller

          Yes, and birth control works . Some are just too lazy and irresponsible to use it. Hi nocbsfan my friend.

          • nocbsfan

            Billery seems to have said a lot of things,when she didn’t know she was being over heard. Guess that is what you call a big mouth. Young ladies have a rough time learning, till after a couple abortions. Also seems things continue to get worse as the world itself becomes a little more corrupt. Going to be an uneasy time to control. Hi Sal so good to see you back and feeling better.

          • Sally Koller

            I think it’s time for the rapture. The communist left have been plotting their evil agenda for decades. Considering we’re in modern times I don’t see how the world can get worse . Thanks again my dear.

          • nocbsfan

            Well it is written No one knows the day and the hour.,except the Father……….And it will come as a thief in the night. Then when they shall say , peace and safety; then sudden destruction shall be upon them as travail upon a woman with child; Seems like now when every thing is so evil now would be the time. Except all this evil will be destroyed and mankind will believe that now the world is mine. When man believes he has destroyed evil, then the end will come. Scary huh!
            Now you have been preached to so you don’t have to go to church tomorrow. LOL You can go if you want to. Don’t put your guard down cause it can get worse. See you later my Sal

          • Sally Koller

            You’re right of course. I ‘ll still go to church tomorrow my dear friend . I’ll never put my guard down with God’s help . It’s nice that you call me Sal , a lot of my old friends call me that ! Talk to you soon !

          • nocbsfan

            I have to go to church tomorrow, there is a girl there that looks just like you. I always speak to her and she always gives me a hug. I always pretend its you.Talk to you later my Sal

          • Sally Koller

            That is so sweet of you . Talk to you soon.

          • Balder The Brave

            I feel the world is getting better. Problems exist but the abundance of the God’s world is unveiling itself through human applications

          • Sally Koller

            I hope you’re right Balder !

        • Balder The Brave

          The creation of life is not a mistake. But a divine gift.

          • nocbsfan

            The unplanned pregnancy is a mistake not he child being murdered./ erased

          • Sally Koller

            Very good my dear !

          • Sally Koller

            Exactly !

      • Cas Cusimano

        We know how it will end, if we read Revelation. “Every knee shall bow, every tongue confess, that Jesus Christ is Lord”.

      • Cas Cusimano

        She and he (Bill) are evil people! If we knew what went on in their past; ie criminal behavior, we would all be shocked. Thank God Hillary didn’t win. We would be a socialist / communist country with no morals.

        • Sally Koller

          Thank God is right Cas . I believe the election of President Trump was an act of God. He woke us up to the need of constant vigilance to keep our freedom with the obvious traitor Obama. Only when we were awake because of that horrible experience could he let us have a real President to insure we keep our country and our freedom.

          • Cas Cusimano

            I think God is giving us one more chance. Either Trump, with all of us that voted for him, help turn this country around or we are doomed. The Dems are doing everything they can to ruin his presidency. We need to pray for him and our country.

          • Sally Koller

            I believe you’re right .

    • Balder The Brave

      In Wedon’s movies which side protects life and and which side desires its’ end? Avengers Assemble! For Asgard!

  • kassa1

    To the devil it probably is evil because the evils of murdering the unborn there’s nothing worse than an old world as this is God’s creation. These people are possessed by the devil just does it work was possessed.

    • Sally Koller

      Only a barbaric and uncivilized nation murders it’s young when they should be protecting them.

  • John

    I’m sure Dr Josef Mengele the
    angel of death from Auschwitz had “good points” too. It doesn’t change the fact that they are committing genocide taking thousands of lives each year.

  • Fed up!

    What’s a avenger movie?

    • Sally Koller

      A movie about the depravity of America’s communist left.

      • Fed up!

        Have not seen or paid for a movie in 20 years

        • Sally Koller

          Probably a good thing.

          • nocbsfan

            One really good thing is to see you back, and it sounds as though you are feeling lots better You sound in pretty good form too.

          • Sally Koller

            Thanks Hon. I do feel much better . Thanks my dear. Abortion to me is the thing I hate the most about the communist left. Before the election I was just looking up who was was for it and who was against it. That’s when I started to really find it how evil the traitor Obama and the psychopath Hillary are, not just in their love of murdering innocent babies but in just about every issue too.

          • Sally Koller

            Nocbsfan please see my first comment above . That comment comes from the last two excellent books that I read, one about all the evils of abortion and the other about how the communist left made it’s plans to dumb down America 100 years ago .

  • Sally Koller

    How dare anyone say shutting down Planned Parenthood , AKA Murder Incorporated is evil ! There is nothing more evil than brutally murdering innocent and defenseless unborn babies . It is unfair to make one person endure violent death so as to relieve another person of the burden ( gag ) of pregnancy. I guess because the idiot communist left has dumbed down America with site reading , the number one cause of functional illiteracy, that most can’t read and actually believe the incredible lie that murdering your own child is just fine ! I hope the future will see this evil comparable to the evils of slavery ( also favored by the democrats ) and the holocaust of the Nazis against the Jews.

  • Cadfael

    Keeping Planned Parenthood, an organization that profits from the selling of body parts of aborted babies, in business and supporting that organization is EVIL and supremely DEMONIC!

  • Peter Smith

    So the murder of several million unborn children ISN’T evil? This @sshole should get his facts straight BEFORE opening his pie hole …….

    • Sally Koller

      Isaiah 5:12; ” Woe unto you who call evil good and good evil ” Doesn’t that perfectly describe the criminal communist left?

      • Peter Smith

        Yes it does Sally. One point, Isaiah 5:20 is your passage, but I agree. Isaiah 5:23 is also a good description of the progressive left, “who acquit the guilty for a bribe, but deny justice to the innocent”. Sounds jut like the Clinton Syndicate and their “foundation”.

        • Sally Koller

          That’s right Peter. The communist left will do just about anything for money and power . I don’t think the word justice is in their vocabulary.

          • Peter Smith

            Yes Ma’am. Justice is not in the progressive left’s vocabulary, true enough. But when you get right down to the brass tacks of this matter, the matter of whether or not the TRUTH is of relevance is another part of their mantra and agenda. I have witnessed next to nothing from the progressive left that did not have a biased liberal slant, half truths, or as in most cases, NO truth at all. Communism, and socialism for that matter, don’t work for a many reasons, the the progressive left just cannot figure that out.

          • Sally Koller

            You’re certainly right about that Peter.

  • rick meek

    Time for trump to be totally transparent —— DECLASSIFY AND RELEASE ALL RECORDS OF ALL INVESTIGATIONS FOR THE LAST 10 YEARS…….

  • Reggie Smith

    If you are a believer in God’s word you will understand that God gives all of us the right to choose. The government should not interfere with God’s word. It also should not fund an organization that goes against God’s word. If someone wants an abortion, they can pay for it. They will also have to face God’s judgement. Taxpayers dollars should never be placed with an organization like Planned Parenthood.

    • Grace Ringor Carag

      I agree with you wholeheartedly.

  • rick meek

    How about the money going to St Judes – Shriner’s – Wounded Warriors – DAV – Paralyzed Vets….etc….

    • Sally Koller

      Great suggestion!

  • rick meek

    Time for trump to be totally transparent —— – DECLASSIFY AND RELEASE ALL RECORDS OF ALL INVESTIGATIONS FOR THE LAST 10 YEARS…..

    • Sally Koller

      That’s right Rick . How dare they target President Trump after not targeting the obvious traitor Obama who never followed the law or the constitution and drove our great country to the edge of ruin. I hear nobody tried to stop him because they were afraid of being called racist ! That’s stupid because he did nothing for Black Americans except to make them believe the police and white people in general are racist when the overwhelming majority of white people have not been racist for about 60 years !
