04/30/2019 |Listening to President Donald Trump, one might think that some American women are actually carrying babies to term, going through labor and then conspiring with medical professionals to kill their newborns.

That’s infanticide, and as medical professionals have pointed out since Trump made his frightening remarks at a Saturday rally, this is not what real women and real doctors do.

So HuffPost talked to an OB-GYN to debunk them.

04/17/2019 | “Unplanned,” a new movie in limited release, charts the unusual conversion story of Abby Johnson, a real-life Planned Parenthood clinic director in Bryan, Texas, who became an anti-abortion advocate after a crisis of conscience. The R-rated film, which Vice President Mike Pence plugged on Twitter earlier this month, has grossed $15.7 million since its debut on March 29, more than double its original budget.

The film follows Johnson, played in the movie by Ashley Bratcher, on her journey from Planned Parenthood employee of the year to disillusioned opponent of abortion. Along the way, it perpetuates distortions and potentially dangerous myths about the procedure.
