The Planned Parenthood abortion business reported making more than $1 billion in income in 2010, but they achieved that with a little help from their Hollywood friends.
Looking back on 2010, in its recently-released annual report, Planned Parenthood racked up a stunning number of celebrity endorsements from musicians, writers, actors and other big-named people.
JoAnna Garcia, best known for her portrayal of Cheyenne Hart-Montgomery on The CW sitcom Reba participated in an awareness campaign for Planned Parenthood that it co-sponsored with MTV, the Kaiser Family Foundation, and the Obama administration. She wasn’t alone as celebrities like Big Boi, Joy Bryant, Flo Rida, Keri Hilson, Perez Hilton, Kid Sister, Benji and Joel Madden, Method Man, N.E.R.D., Redman, and Asher Roth joined her.
At an annual benefit for the abortion business, members of the show Private Practice donated a script to auction off signed by Paul Adelstein, Amy Brenneman, Tim Daly, Taye Diggs, Chris Lowell, Audra McDonald, KaDee Strickland, and Kate Walsh.
Kathleen Turner donated her book Send Yourself Roses for the event, Alan Cumming donated his book Tommy’s Tales, and Jon Stewart donated tickets to The Daily Show. Heather Tom donated a tour of The Bold and the Beautiful set and lunch, while Bree Williamson treated winners of an auction to a private tour of the One Life to Live set and lunch.
Walsh, the actress known for her role as Dr. Addison Montgomery on the ABC dramas Grey’s Anatomy and Private Practice and a member of Planned Parenthood’s Board of Advisors, sent out a specific fundraiser for Planned Parenthood over Twitter this month.
Amber Tamblyn, who had a starring role on the television series Joan of Arcadia, discussed her role as a Planned Parenthood spokesperson in an April interview in New York Magazine.

Gretchen Peters performed her song “Independence Day” and announced she would donate the royalties to Planned Parenthood at an event attended by Amy Goodman of Democracy Now fame. Rachel Kauder Nalebuff, author of My Little Red Book, donated proceeds from her advance to Planned Parenthood and its Planned Parenthood of Connecticut affiliate.
Earlier this year, four actors from the acclaimed television series Law and Order: Criminal Intent recorded a video endorsing the nation’s largest abortion business, Planned Parenthood. They specifically endorse its efforts to force Americans to pay for abortions in a government-run health care plan.
Actors Eric Bogosian, Vincent D’Onofrio, Kathryn Erbe, and Julianne Nicholson lend their faces, voices and names to the pro-abortion effort and specifically endorsed taxpayer funding of abortions and abortion coverage in health care insurance.
