Lin-Manuel Miranda and Planned Parenthood

What is Giving Tuesday?

#GivingTuesday harnesses the potential of social media and the generosity of people around the world to bring about real change in their communities; it provides a platform for them to encourage the donation of time, resources and talents to address local challenges. It also brings together the collective power of a unique blend of partners— nonprofits, civic organizations, businesses and corporations, as well as families and individuals—to encourage and amplify small acts of kindness.

As a global movement, #GivingTuesday unites countries around the world by sharing our capacity to care for and empower one another.

The purpose of Giving Tuesday and giving the gift of death by supporting Planned Parenthood, the nation's largest abortion provider, are at odds.

Ripping a baby apart, killing the little one, isn't an act of kindness.

From LifeNews:

On Tuesday, Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda spotlighted abortion giant Planned Parenthood as part of the annual #GivingTuesday effort on Twitter. Miranda re-Tweeted a follower’s post that sang the praises of his mother, Dr. Luz Towns-Miranda, for her service on the national board for the left-wing organization. The celebrity added, “Working on this…,” and included the Giving Tuesday hashtag.

Miranda's support of Planned Parenthood runs counter to his concern for diversity and supporting minorities. The abortion provider kills a disproportionate number of African American babies.

Of course, when Mike Pence and some of his family members attended the Broadway production of Hamilton, he was subjected to a lecture about the fears and anxiety experienced by a diverse America in the wake of Donald Trump's election.

BRANDON VICTOR DIXON: Vice President-elect Pence, we welcome you and we truly thank you for joining us here at Hamilton: An American Musical. We really do.

We, sir, we are the diverse America who are alarmed and anxious that your new administration will not protect us, our planet, our children, our parents, or defend us and uphold our inalienable rights, sir.

But we truly hope that this show has inspired you to uphold our American values, and to work on behalf of all of us. All of us.

According to the New York Times:
The statement that Mr. Dixon read was written by the show’s creator, Lin-Manuel Miranda; its director, Thomas Kail; and the lead producer, Jeffrey Seller, with input from cast members, Mr. Seller said.
So, Miranda fears that the new administration won't protect "our children"?

He's got to be kidding!

The politically active and allegedly socially concerned Miranda promotes the Planned Parenthood mission, a portion of which is ending human lives. That is undebatable.
