Want to know how disastrous the world would be if Planned Parenthood shut down? Thanks to ‘Buffy’ creator Joss Whedon, who just released a short video in support of the organization, you can now see what would happen. Watch the video here!
Planned Parenthood is under attack! First, as a Presidential candidate, Donald Trump said he would defund the organization, and now, a health-care bill that just passed in the House of Representatives (and is currently under Senate review) could strip Planned Parenthood of a lot of its funding, even though it helps millions of American women.
Fortunately, Buffy the Vampire Slayer creator Joss Whedon just dropped a short video, “Unlocked” — which he directed — in support of the organization. The nearly three-minute video shows what the world would be like without Planned Parenthood, and it focuses on situations of three different women to highlight services the clinics offer. “I’ve supported Planned Parenthood in the past, but until I worked with them closely on this, I didn’t understand how many services they — and for some, they alone — provide,” Joss said in a press release. “For so many, there’s an obvious tipping point between hope and despair.”
“If politicians succeed in shutting down Planned Parenthood, millions of people lose access to basic health services. STD testing, birth control, cancer screenings…how can these be at risk?” Joss also said in a statement. “‘UNLOCKED’ is about what a world without Planned Parenthood would look like, which is truly dire. I’ve supported Planned Parenthood in the past, but until I worked with them closely on this, I didn’t understand how many services they — and for some, they alone — provide.” Click here to see stills from the video!
