Baby harvesting Planned Parenthood receives support from Little House on Prairie star
A popular TV child star has come out in support of abortion biz Planned Parenthood, recently exposed for harvesting baby organs.
Melissa Gilbert, who starred in Michael Landon’s TV series, Little House on the Prairie, which still airs on many cable stations, showed her support of Planned Parenthood in several Facebook posts. Gilbert played the role of Laura Ingalls Wilder on the show. The 51-year-old Democrat has recently announced her campaign to run for Congress in Michigan.
Gilbert’s campaign is hoping to unseat freshman pro-life Republican Rep. Mike Bishop of Michigan’s 8th congressional district. On her Gilbert for Michigan website, she cites family as her reasons for running:
“I’m running for Congress to make life a little easier for all the families who feel they have fallen through the cracks in today’s economy. I believe building a new economy is a team effort, and we need to bring fresh voices to the table to get the job done.”
A spokesman for the Mike Bishop campaign has called Gilbert a “tax cheat,” noting that she owes $360,000 in back taxes to the U.S. government and $112,000 to California.
“Melissa Gilbert can afford to have a stylist for her dog, but cannot pay her taxes,” he said in a statement.
“Her values our out of whack with the district.”
Gilbert’s “values” include support for Planned Parenthood an abortion organization exposed by the Center for Medical Progress as being involved in a baby organ harvesting operation. But, despite CMP’s now public under cover videos of Planned Parenthood staffers negotiating to sell the body parts of babies they harvested, Gilbert publicly showed support for Planned Parenthood on her campaign Facebook page, by changing her profile picture to the #StandwithPP meme.
Then, on September 29th, Gilbert asked her Facebook followers to support “Planned Parenthood Action on #PinkOutDay”
Gilbert also publicly went after Bishop for his call to defund Planned Parenthood writing, “On Friday, Mike Bishop and the House GOP voted to defund Planned Parenthood. Their vote put health care for thousands of women in Michigan at risk. Let’s tell Mike Bishop and the GOP to stop trying to defund Planned Parenthood, and get back to work!

The link took Melissa Gilbert for Congress supporters to a website which states: “Mike Bishop: Stop Trying to Defund Planned Parenthood!”
In her most recent move, the former Little House on the Prairie star took part in a march for abortion. A video of the event was published on YouTube:
Shortly after she announced her candidacy, Gilbert received the support of the radically pro-abortion EMILY’s List, who publicly tweeted their congratulations to Gilbert:
According to a report from the AP published by a local Michigan media outlet, Gilbert has never run for political office before and only moved to the state from California two years ago after marrying actor Timothy Busfield.
