Musician Tom Petty’s estate donates to Planned Parenthood

The estate of late musician Tom Petty has donated $150,000 to Planned Parenthood and is encouraging others to do so as well.

The donation was announced via an Instagram post, stating, “The Tom Petty estate is proud to strongly support Planned Parenthood’s efforts to preserve important healthcare in the USA by donating $150K to Planned Parenthood Federation, Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast, and Planned Parenthood Greater New York.”

Before his death, Petty participated in at least one fundraiser for the abortion giant.

Though “healthcare” is mentioned in the post, Planned Parenthood is committed to abortion access, with “health care” used as a known euphemism for abortion.

The post continued by noting that Petty’s widow, Dana, has worked at the abortion corporation.

“Tom’s widow, Dana Petty, worked for Planned Parenthood for over a decade in various roles, including as a counselor, and Tom was quite proud of that fact,” it concluded. “It is in this spirit that we encourage everyone to support the important access to rape kits and counseling, early screenings for cancer and of course the right to choose whether or not to become a parent.”

Of course, Planned Parenthood is not a health care provider upon which Americans rely; over the years, the number of abortions committed by the abortion giant has reliably increased, while legitimate health care services have steadily decreased. This trend was borne out yet again in its latest annual report, which revealed that contraceptive services, cancer screenings, preventive care visits, adoption referrals, and client numbers have decreased. Prenatal care meanwhile has plummeted 80% since 2010.

Abortion procedures increased since the previous annual report, and overall, Planned Parenthood’s abortion numbers have increased by 20% in the last 10 years, and by 100% since the year 2000. The number of abortions reported in the latest annual report — 392,715 — is a record high for the abortion corporation.
