The cast of the Best Picture nominated film Juno is getting back together in order to read the script as a fundraiser for Planned Parenthood. The irony is that Juno was widely considered a pro-life film. In the film, the main character chooses to put her child up for adoption instead of having an abortion. The director of the film, Jason Reitman, stated that “If there was any confusion about whether ‘Juno’ was pro-choice or pro-life, this should settle that. Juno had a choice, and that was the most important part.” The problem with Reitman’s assessment is that Planned Parenthood is not really “pro-choice;” they are pro-abortion.
Planned Parenthood’s actions clearly show that it does not believe in a “right to choose” unless that choice is abortion. Planned Parenthood opposes laws that protect the conscience of doctors and nurses who cannot perform abortions due to moral or religious objectives. Moreover, Planned Parenthood also strongly opposes conscience rights for pharmacists who cannot offer “emergency contraception” drugs as they can potentially abort a child.
