‘Hanoi Jane’ to Speak at Planned Parenthood Event

Washington, D.C. (17 September 2008) – Jane Fonda will give the keynote address to Planned Parenthood Arizona's annual fundraiser October 18 in Phoenix.

The long time abortion activist and 'born again Christian' is also known for her radical leftist views on communism. Like her former husband, Ted Turner, Fonda has been an outspoken abortion activist and Planned Parenthood supporter.

"Is it any surprise that someone who would support the atrocities of communists in the Vietnam War would also support the atrocities Planned Parenthood visits on our society?" asked Judie Brown, president of American Life League. "It's all too appropriate for Hanoi Jane to speak at a Planned Parenthood event."

Fonda's appearance comes close on the heels of an address to Planned Parenthood of Greater Orlando in May.

At that time, Fonda told the Orlando Sentinel, "I am a big believer in the work that Planned Parenthood does."

"Jane Fonda was also a big believer in the work of the Vietcong," said Brown. "At least Ms. Fonda is consistent in her support for those who would kill, maim and torture innocent people – whether they're babies in the womb, or South Vietnamese villagers. Jane Fonda has always been quick to defend oppressors and murderers."

Planned Parenthood Arizona operates 20 abortion businesses around the state.

The fundraiser will honor Peggy Goldwater who founded Planned Parenthood Arizona in 1937 and will benefit the Arizona branch of Planned Parenthood Federation of America – an organization that had a total income of one billion dollars in the 2006-2007 fiscal year.

American Life League was cofounded in 1979 by Judie Brown. It is the largest grassroots Catholic pro-life organization in the United States and is committed to the protection of all innocent human beings from the moment of creation to death.
