June 3, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) — The star of Netflix’s Lucifer is encouraging fans to donate to Planned Parenthood rather than send him wedding presents.

Tom Ellis, who plays Satan in the show about the devil quitting hell to run a nightclub in Los Angeles, tweeted on May 22 that he and then-fiancée Meaghan Oppenheimer would be “very grateful” for donations to the abortion enterprise for their “upcoming nuptials.”

“This story is almost a satire on Hollywood,” Dan Gainor, Media Research Center (MRC) vice president for MRC TechWatch, Business, and Culture told LifeSiteNews. “The actor who plays Satan, but as a lovable good guy, wants people to help kill babies ... to celebrate his wedding. It’s almost like he learned method acting so much that he just embraced the reality of Lucifer, not the TV propaganda version.”

Oppenheimer, a writer and actress, also tweeted her desire that those wishing to send a wedding present donate to Planned Parenthood instead. She posted a wedding photo on Instagram today.

Ellis’s and Oppenheimer’s request “shows, first of all that our pro-life legislative and political progress is really getting to these elites,” Father Frank Pavone, national director of Priests for Life, told LifeSiteNews. “They feel they have to strike back. Good. They should get used to it, along with Alyssa Milano and the whole Hollywood crowd.”

“Second, the fact that many think this donation arrangement is a ‘nice’ idea shows the ignorance many people have in thinking Planned Parenthood has anything to do with parenthood, and that it’s a health organization rather than a corrupt, racist political and criminal enterprise,” Pavone continued.

Planned Parenthood is America’s largest abortion company. It commits over 300,000 abortions annually.

Netflix picked up Lucifer when Fox dropped it after three seasons.

“What an irony,” the pro-life priest concluded. “A Google search on the series ‘Lucifer’ reveals what it’s about in these words: ‘Lucifer, the original fallen angel, … has become dissatisfied with his life in hell. After abandoning his throne and retiring to Los Angeles, Lucifer indulges in his favorite things (women, wine and song) — until a murder takes place outside of his upscale nightclub. For the first time in billions of years, the murder awakens something unfamiliar in Lucifer's soul that is eerily similar to compassion and sympathy.’”

“That’s more than you can say for Planned Parenthood!” he quipped.

In recent weeks, Hollywood elites have expressed alarm over the passage of laws protecting babies with beating hearts from being aborted and Alabama’s pro-life law banning most abortions.

The film industry receives generous tax breaks in Georgia. Netflix and the parent company of Warner Bros. have suggested they may boycott the state if its heartbeat bill takes effect.

Disney co-CEO Bob Iger also said it would be “very difficult” to continue filming in Georgia iff the law takes effect. Numerous celebrities have trashed the Peach State for its measure protecting preborn children, to which Governor Brian Kemp said, “We value and protect innocent life — even though that makes C-list celebrities squawk.”
