Will Ferrell, Adam McKay’s ‘Funny or Die’ mocks Planned Parenthood videos, ignored fetal organ harvesting

Co-founded by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay, the comedy website, Funny or Die, is making national headlines, mocking the Planned Parenthood videos, omitting the serious nature of the fetal organ harvesting.

The parody video, titled “The Shocking Truth about Planned Parenthood” spoofed the Center for Medical Progress’ Planned Parenthood video series as though it is a serious, drama PSA.

The clip begins with a grey image of a Planned Parenthood facility and  text warning, “The following video may be disturbing to some viewers.” A narrator says, “Planned Parenthood is supported by the state and federal government. But what kind of heinous activities are your tax dollars funding?”

The comedy is about the testimonies of the women sharing their “horrifying” experiences at Planned Parenthood facilities….receiving cancer screenings and breast exams.

“Planned Parenthood is relentless in screening for breast and cervical cancer,” one woman says.

Another woman says dramatically, “They led me down a narrow hallway into a little room filled with medical instruments  and they gave me great advice –for prenatal care!”

“Planned Parenthood overwhelmed me with the ability to make my own choices– without having to ask my congressman!” another woman states.
