A wide range of liberal artists donated their talents for a project to benefit Planned Parenthood, the organization that performed 323,999 abortions in 2014-15, according to its latest annual report, and received $553.7 million in federal health care grants and reimbursements in the year that ended June 30, 2015.
The project, with high-profile contributors like John Legend and Lady Gaga, resulted in a box set of records dubbed “7 inches for Planned Parenthood.”
The Kickstarter project The Creative Independent put together the box set because “lawmakers with extreme views are working hard to shut down Planned Parenthood” and “7-inches for Planned Parenthood is a response to this threat,” according to its Facebook page.
“In late March, Vice President Mike Pence cast a tie-breaking vote in the Senate to allow states to withhold federal funding from Planned Parenthood and other family planning organizations,” PBS NewsHour reported.
Comedian Zach Galifianakis joined the musicians taking part in the project, which also included Sharon Van Etten, the Foo Fighters and Mary J. Bliger.
Roberto Lange, who performs as the electro-pop artist Helado Negro, told PBS NewsHour participating in the fundraiser let him “stand up for what he believes.”
“Music and performance – that’s a form of resistance for me,” Lange said.
So, “lawmakers with extreme views”? Being able to suck the brains out of, or cut the spine of a baby just about to be born is not an extreme view?
