As Twitchy reported Tuesday, Planned Parenthood Keystone posted and then quickly deleted a tweet claiming, “We need a Disney princess who’s had an abortion,” among other “needs,” like a pro-choice princess and a trans princess.
Earlier, Planned Parenthood suggested ‘we need a Disney princess who’s had an abortion’ and then they deleted it.

Again, that tweet didn’t last long, but there was enough of a backlash that Slate was able to do a “conservatives pounce” take:

Hey, don’t say it was a dumb tweet! Instead, be like Jezebel, say “Hold my beer,” and use some statistics to prove that it was pretty clever.

According to the Guttmacher Institute, 23.7 percent of women in the United States will have had an abortion by age 45. According to the “official” Disney princess website, there are 11 “official” Disney princesses: Belle, Rapunzel, Ariel, Tiana, Snow White, Cinderella, Aurora, Merida, Pocahontas, Jasmine, and Mulan. That means statistically around two and a half of these strong women have gotten abortions and aren’t telling you about it because of a national culture of shame and misogyny!!!
Statistically speaking, then, two-and-a-half Disney princesses have had abortions, but they’re not “shouting their abortions” because of our culture of misogyny.
You are one sick site. Sick. https://t.co/GMXbsm3CPJ

Statistically, 3 would-be Disney princesses were aborted and denied the right to live. https://t.co/QSPeHTMDLd

This is not how statistics work, you utter and complete morons. If it were, statistically, every US family would have 2 whole kids and .4 of a child. https://t.co/3FJEpEzp76

Really, what's the abortion rate among fictional royalty? https://t.co/n2Uj05jgZu

Are you considering the abortion rates during the era each film was set in, or are you using today's rates? https://t.co/dqex6GltdQ

What are Planned Parenthood’s rates for baby parts these days?
You're applying statistics for women in modern-day America to fictional characters from different time periods in different countries (some of which are also fictional) to make a 'well, actually' article. https://t.co/Qc9WIZ0mRS

Scary how fast the Left went from "We should take steps to minimize the number of abortions but keep the option open for women who went them" to "DISNEY PRINCESSES GOT ABORTIONS AND YOU SHOULD TOO".
Leftist taqqiya is real. We could learn a thing or two from that. https://t.co/qxyiqHARpI
