Churchgoing Jennifer Garner to Fundraise for Planned Parenthood During Live Read of 'Juno'

Churchgoing Hollywood actress Jennifer Garner will be fundraising for the nation's largest abortion provider when she and actress Ellen Page participate in a live reading of the hit 2007 movie "Juno" in early April.

The creators of "Juno," a film about a young teenager faced with an unplanned pregnancy who gives her baby up for adoption instead of choosing abortion, have announced a one night only 10th anniversary live-read on April 8 at the The Theatre at Ace Hotel in Los Angeles.

The live read will feature Page, who starred as pregnant teen Juno MacGuff; the 44-year-old Garner, who played the adoptive parent of Juno's baby; and an all-female cast who will fill out the rest of the cast and even take on roles originally played by men in the film.

Additionally, the proceeds from the event will go to the benefit of Planned Parenthood, an organization that aborts over 300,000 babies each year and receives over $500 million dollars each year from the federal government.

According to Entertainment Weekly, the film's Oscar-nominated director, Jason Reitman, was inspired to bring back his live script-reading series after putting the series to rest last year because of the 2016 election in which Republican Donald Trump was victorious over the Planned Parenthood-endorsed Hillary Clinton. Trump also maintained through the election that he would be willing to strip Planned Parenthood of its federal funding as long as the organization conducts abortions.
