Planned Parenthood: ‘We Need a Disney Princess Who’s Had an Abortion’

By Life Site News. A Planned Parenthood affiliate in Pennsylvania called for a Disney princess who not only supports abortion, but who has had one.

“We need a disney princess who’s had an abortion We need a disney princess who’s pro-choice,” read a tweet from Planned Parenthood Keystone’s official Twitter account, published Tuesday morning. It has since been deleted, but a screenshot of the tweet is preserved below.

The message also calls for a transgendered Disney princess, as well as “union worker” and “undocumented immigrant” princesses.

Planned Parenthood Keystone has not referenced the tweet or its deletion on its Twitter account as of the time of this writing, and neither it nor the national organization replied to the Wrap’s request for comment.

Planned Parenthood Called for Disney Princess ‘Who’s Had an Abortion’ in Now-Deleted Tweet

By USA Today. A Planned Parenthood branch in Pennsylvania called for the Walt Disney Co. to create an animated princess “who’s had an abortion” in a since-deleted tweet posted Tuesday.

Planned Parenthood Keystone, a branch of the health service provider based in Trexlertown, Pa., tweeted that, “We need a disney princess who’s had an abortion / We need a disney princess who’s pro-choice / We need a disney princess who’s an undocumented immigrant / We need a disney princess who’s actually a union worker / We need a disney princess who’s trans”.

The tweet’s construction riffed on a recently popular Twitter meme that imagines new animated princesses with traits serious and not. The non-profit Internet Archive’s Wayback Machine — which archives snapshots of sites across the web — shows it stored six captures of the tweet on Tuesday. Planned Parenthood’s national office confirmed the tweet and its deletion in an email to USA TODAY.

“Today, we joined an ongoing Twitter conversation about the kinds of princesses people want to see in an attempt to make a point about the importance of telling stories that challenge stigma and championing stories that too often don’t get told,” said Melissa Reed, Planned Parenthood’s president and CEO. “Upon reflection, we decided that the seriousness of the point we were trying to make was not appropriate for the subject matter or context, and we removed the tweet.”

The tweet triggered a slew of feedback online from users replying to a now-vanished post. Some took screenshots of the tweet before its deletion.
