Planned Parenthood and Hollywood have long joined forces. And now, the abortion giant is using its latest annual report to boast of the entertainment industry’s support.

According to America’s largest abortion provider, “entertainment stands with Planned Parenthood.” As proof, Planned Parenthood’s 2016 – 2017 report listed an album to which entertainers donated various tracks.

100 percent of the proceeds benefited Planned Parenthood.

“Thanks to a group of high-profile musicians, artists, writers, comedians, and thought leaders, this year 7-inches for Planned Parenthood was released,” the report read, “a curated benefit project made up of seven-inch vinyl records and digital downloads of original content.”

In the album itself, Planned Parenthood [President] Cecile Richards again thanked the performers.

“We are incredibly grateful to have the support of so many artists and entertainers who are standing with Planned Parenthood, Richards said in the opening track. “’7-inches for Planned Parenthood’ is a reminder that each of us has the power to use our voice to speak out for what we believe.”
