Whoopi gushes about Kardashians’ visit to Planned Parenthood: ‘Good on them!’
NEW YORK, May 16, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – Three members of the Kardashian media enterprise visited the Los Angeles headquarters of Planned Parenthood last week, apparently offering their assistance to the abortion chain.
And the visit received a “huge bravo” from the women hosts of The View television program.
Kim, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian stopped by Planned Parenthood Los Angeles on Thursday, according to several news outlets, and the women praised the abortion giant on social media.
Much of the coverage suggests the reality TV personalities are getting political, with one report indicating they plan to work with Planned Parenthood in the future. The visit was taped for a future episode of their Keeping Up with the Kardashians television program.
After the visit, Kim Kardashian was critical on Instagram of the proposed American Healthcare Act (AHCA) before the U.S. Senate that would divest Planned Parenthood of most of its millions in federal funding for the next year.
She stated in her post of Planned Parenthood, “They are such an amazing place that provides so much to so many! #istandwithpp”
Kim Kardashian said with a tearful emoji: “My sisters and I visited Planned Parenthood recently and learned that the House of Representatives forced through a bill that strips healthcare coverage from millions of people and raises healthcare costs, including Planned Parenthood patients.”
Khloe Kardashian had shared a photo of the visit on Instagram with the caption, "Visited @PPLosAngeles yesterday and learned so much. 2.5MM rely on PP for care -birth control, cancer-screenings, STD testing and so much more! #IStandWithPP."
On Monday, The View co-host Whoopi Goldberg praised the Kardashians’ abortion facility visit and their pro-Planned Parenthood message while granting it might have been a headline grab by the ubiquitous media siblings.
“Now some say it’s a publicity stunt,’ Goldberg enthused, “but even if it is, you know, good on them! Good on them, you know?” Goldberg’s statement was applauded by the audience.
The View women went on to talk about how the Kardashians’ promotion of Planned Parenthood could be a good thing, and how they were women moguls with an overall network of $300 million.
Co-host Sara Haines congratulated Kim Kardashian for announcing during the 2016 presidential campaign she was trying to research the candidates because she was going to vote.
Haines said of the Kardashians’ abortion visit, “So I don’t care what it was, I think the fact that they did it deserves, you know, a huge bravo.”
Joy Behar kidded about the family’s fame being derived from their self-promotion.
“When it comes to the Kardashians,” Behar said, “what good is it if it’s not on TV?”
This opened the door for Goldberg to imply that the Kermit Gosnell abortion “House of Horrors” narrative needed to be debunked. And the Kardashians’ Planned Parenthood trip might have served to shed positive light on the abortion industry, she suggested, without naming Gosnell.
“If it’s on TV with them walking through that, so that people see that there are not bottles of babies floating around, I think it’s a good idea,” Goldberg stated. “Because that will be the only time someone will see this, who is watching, who will say, 'Oh, my gosh, they’re in there. Oh, there’s nothing in there, nothing’s floating around, no one’s walking around like this (her arm up) with a knife.'”
Co-host Jedediah Bila concurred, adding that people need to go and visit places like Planned Parenthood “and see what they’re about” before being critical.
“So I think by them taking pictures with the representatives of the organization it shows that before you critique something – Go!” said Bila. “Figure out what it’s about, take a visit, sit with people.”
Bila has clearly missed all of the Live Action exposes, the many Center for Medical Progress videos, endless 40 Days for Life accounts and thousands of reports from sidewalk counselors across the U.S., all of whom can attest to what goes on inside Planned Parenthood and other abortion facilities.
