A local Pennsylvania Planned Parenthood is receiving backlash after offering some advice to those people on the Disney creative team who design princesses.
The Keystone service provider tweeted that Disney should create a princess “who’s had an abortion.” Their plea for new princesses included those who are: pro-choice, in the country illegally, work in a union, and who are transsexual.
In a now-deleted tweet, as Fox News reports, the group said “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.”

Earlier, Planned Parenthood suggested ‘we need a Disney princess who’s had an abortion’ and then they deleted it.

Here is how some people are responding:
Might be the single most disgusting post ever! Having an abortion is not something to celebrate. The right to have one and the celebration of one are not the same thing!

Somebody at PP needs to have their head checked. Better yet check all of their heads (and hearts while they are at it!)

Some other people offered their own ideas for prospective Disney princesses – a Christian princess, or a princess who owns a firearm:
Sure thing….as soon as we have a Christian Disney princess and an NRA member Disney princess.

We need a Disney princess who owns a firearm
We need a Disney princess who’s a Christian
We need a Disney princess who rips up welfare checks and gets a job
The list goes on and on

Per Fox News:
In a statement provided to Fox News, Planned Parenthood Keystone President and CEO Melissa Reed said “Planned Parenthood believes that pop culture – television shows, music, movies – has a critical role to play in educating the public and sparking meaningful conversations around sexual and reproductive health issues and policies, including abortion. We also know that emotionally authentic portrayals of these experiences are still extremely rare – and that’s part of a much bigger lack of honest depictions of certain people’s lives and communities.
“Today, we joined an ongoing Twitter conversation about the kinds of princesses people want to see in an attempt to make a point about the importance of telling stories that challenge stigma and championing stories that too often don’t get told,” Reed said. “Upon reflection, we decided that the seriousness of the point we were trying to make was not appropriate for the subject matter or contect, and we removed the tweet.”
Planned Parenthood was fully funded in the recently signed 2018 budget agreement.
