Pennsylvania Planned Parenthood tweets: 'We need a Disney princess who's had an abortion'

A Pennsylvania branch of Planned Parenthood raised eyebrows Tuesday after tweeting that Disney should widen its animated princesses to include one “who’s had an abortion” and “an undocumented immigrant.”

“We need a Disney princess who’s had an abortion. We need a Disney princess who’s pro-choice. We need a Disney princess who’s an undocumented immigrant. We need a disney princess who’s actually a union worker. We need a Disney princess who’s trans,” the account for Planned Parenthood of Keystone, Pennsylvania tweeted on Tuesday morning.

The tweet was deleted about two hours after being posted  — but of course the Internet never forgets.

Both Planned Parenthood Keystone and the national organization did not immediately respond to request for comment from TheWrap on Tuesday.

Despite its brief life online, the aborted tweet still came in for withering mockery, with screenshots rollicking around conservative media types.

Though Planned Parenthood says its focus is on women’s health, it’s not the first time one of its local affiliates have waded into more divisive cultural issues.

Earlier this month, a Kentucky branch drew scorn from actor James Woods and others for asserting that “some men have a uterus.”

In the Trump era, Planned Parenthood has come under increasing political attack for providing contraception and abortion services, and has been the subject of a sustained campaign to discredit and defund the organization.

Last year, the organization was the subject of legislation giving individual states the ability to withhold funding from its programs.
