A Pennsylvania branch of Planned Parenthood tweeted out on Tuesday asking Disney to create a princess who has had an abortion.

Below is a picture of the tweet that has since been deleted, according to USA Today. The tweet said

“We need a Disney princess who’s had an abortion / We need a Disney princess who’s pro-choice / We need a disney princess who’s an undocumented immigrant / We need a Disney princess who’s actually a union worker / We need a Disney princess who’s trans”.

 

 

According to reports from USA Today, there were six screenshots stored in The Wayback Machine – a nonprofit internet archiving website and Planned Parenthood’s national office confirmed the tweet.

National outrage ensued about the tweet, and Planned Parenthood issued the following statement:

“Today, we joined an ongoing Twitter conversation about the kinds of princesses people want to see in an attempt to make a point about the importance of telling stories that challenge stigma and championing stories that too often don’t get told,” said Melissa Reed, Planned Parenthood’s president and CEO. “Upon reflection, we decided that the seriousness of the point we were trying to make was not appropriate for the subject matter or context, and we removed the tweet.”
