Actress Jamie Lee Curtis is ‘proud’ to promote the abortion pill for Planned Parenthood

Jamie Lee Curtis, Planned Parenthood

Actress Jamie Lee Curtis announced last week on Twitter that she is “proud” to have teamed up with mega abortion business Planned Parenthood with the goal of helping women access Do-It-Yourself abortions at home.

“I am here today on behalf of Planned Parenthood to tell you about Telehealth,” Curtis said in a video. “It’s [Planned Parenthood’s] way of helping you during this crisis.” She claims Telehealth will help take the load off of hospitals working to save COVID-19 patients. This is completely untrue.

Planned Parenthood itself stated in the initial days of coronavirus outbreak in the United States that it was unable to help people who thought they had the virus. Dr. Krishna Upadhya, senior medical adviser for Planned Parenthood, said that Planned Parenthood patients experiencing symptoms of coronavirus should contact their local department of health which “can help ensure you get the care you need without risking the health of others.”

Make no mistake, this isn’t about helping women. Planned Parenthood locations have been shutting down amid the pandemic, and adding Telehealth to their “services” will help them make money. But it comes at the expense of women and children. By continuing to operate and by adding Telehealth to its so-called services, Planned Parenthood is actually helping to potentially  increase the number of patients in the emergency room — potentially exposing Planned Parenthood patients to COVID-19.

With Telehealth, Planned Parenthood will be able to commit abortions without actually seeing patients at all. One New York State Planned Parenthood official said her facility has already used Telehealth to help a woman have a chemical abortion “at home with her children running around her.” The abortion corporation also claims to have given a chemical abortion to an EMT while she was sitting in her ambulance.

Not examining a patient prior to an abortion carries added risk for the woman. Without properly dating the pregnancy, women are put at greater risk for incomplete abortions, as the risk for incomplete abortion increases with gestational age. In addition, without an ultrasound performed before the abortion pill is taken, it would not be known if a woman was experiencing an ectopic pregnancy. Any woman with an ectopic pregnancy should not take the abortion pill, as this could be life-threatening to her.


Yet, even with the added risk factors aside, taking the abortion pill is much more dangerous than the abortion industry lets on. Hemorrhaging and extreme cramping can occur, and women would have no other choice than to go to the ER or call 911. In doing so, they would then be put at greater risk of contracting COVID-19. According to the American Association of Pro-Life Obstetricians and Gynecologists (AAPLOG), about five percent of women who undergo chemical abortions will require a trip to the emergency room for hemorrhaging or a surgical abortion. Therefore, as the number of chemical abortions in the U.S. increases, the number of abortion patients visiting emergency rooms will also increase.

Planned Parenthood abortionists and staff are not helping patients recover from COVID-19, but they don’t want to lose money. Telemedicine allows them to continue to sell abortions to women who are in crisis-mode now more than ever, and who need concrete help, not abortion. Again, Planned Parenthood is claiming to be motivated by a deep caring for women, when in reality, their motivation is greed and their actions will harm women.
