Prior to last night’s failed GOP effort to defund Planned Parenthood,  Hillary posted this video.

Powerful legislators are focused on one aspect of Planned Parenthood‘s services, abortion, but that is only one of many services the organization provides as a quick look at their website makes clear.

There is no sign on the door saying “women only.”  Men, too, benefit from the organization’s services.  What part of the word “parent” excludes men?  We are long past the days when all aspects of child rearing fell to women.

One battle may have been won, but those who oppose the organization have promised to continue the struggle to end funding to the community and family services they provide.

Over the weekend,  after my fill of Sunday morning political football,  I stumbled on this cute little movie.

PG-13  |  92 min  |  Comedy, Drama  |  11 June 2004 (USA)

When a girl attending a Christian high school becomes pregnant, she finds herself ostracized and demonized, as all of her former friends turn on her.

There is never a question as to whether or not she will have the baby. She intends to and she does.  There is a happy, hopeful ending.  An added attraction is a nice cover of Brian Wilson’s “God Only Knows” sung by Mandy Moore who is featured in the movie. If I had been less curious about who was singing, I might have missed,  in the final credits,  who helped bring the movie to the big screen.

Here, under Company Credits, look who shows up!  The emphasis is mine.

Other Companies

Yup!  A movie about a pregnant high school girl having and keeping her baby and Planned Parenthood is listed in the credits.  I do not know of Planned Parenthood having a hand in the production of any feature films about abortion.

Painting any individual or organization with a broad brush is never a good idea.  To portray Planned Parenthood as an abortion mill is more than deceptive and destructive – it is dangerous.

The war against Planned Parenthood and their family services is far from over.  This movie can serve as a little ammo against unwarranted attacks.  It certainly carries a few strong, worthy messages. So, I recommend it for your next “movie night.”
