Mom Donates Entire Emmy Campaign Budget to Planned Parenthood

Mom Donates Entire Emmy Campaign Budget to Planned Parenthood

The series creator and series lead have announced that rather than the $250,000 normally spent to do the dog and pony campaign to garner support for an Emmy Award, they would be donating the amount to Planned Parenthood. It was during the CBS The Morning show discussing the upcoming season's lineup, creator Chuck Lorre and two-time Emmy victor and show star Allison Janney presented their plans.

"Mom" donated its $250,000 Emmy campaign budget to Planned Parenthood instead. Television, spend hundreds of thousands of dollars campaigning and competing for awards season as critical acclaim can boost interest in programming in a cluttered landscape of more than 450 scripted originals. "It makes sense, because our show is all about women", Janney told the CBS This Morning hosts.

The donation comes after the Republican majority in the House of Representatives voted to repeal Barack Obama's Affordable Care Act earlier this month (May17), passing President Donald Trump's controversial American Health Care Act, which, if passed by the Senate, would eliminate funds for many of Planned Parenthood's services. Earlier this month, the House of Representatives passed a bill that would defund Planned Parenthood, blocking access to birth control and preventative care for almost 400,000 low-income women.

"We are committed to being here for them, no matter what".

Clapper: US government 'under assault' by Trump after Comey firing
According to a report in the New York Times , Mr Comey said he would offer the president honesty, but not loyalty. In an interview with USA media, President Trump also accused him being a "showboat" and a "grandstander".

"In Los Angeles County alone, we answer approximately 2,000 calls each day from people asking us for help", said Sue Dunlap, President/CEO of Planned Parenthood Los Angeles.

Janney won back-to-back supporting comedy actress Emmys for her "Mom" in 2014 and 2015.

Janney has supported the abortion chain for years, according to EW. Although a comedy, it nonetheless deals with a variety of heavy subjects including addiction and suicide. Lorre is a long-standing benefactor of the Venice, California Family Clinic, where he established a family health center in his father's name. Faris is a champion of the Global Alliance to Prevent Premature and Stillbirth (GAPPS), a org devoted to preventing premature births and stillbirth.
