Joy Villa Sends Planned Parenthood a Message With Another Statement Dress at Pro-Life Movie Premiere

Singer Joy Villa is known for making political statements with her fashion, and the Monday premiere of pro-life movie “Unplanned” was no exception.

Villa was inspired to make a custom dress for the premiere due to the movie’s inspiration — Abby Johnson, a former director of a Planned Parenthood clinic who changed her beliefs due to her experience working with the organization.

“I told Johnson I wanted to do a custom dress for the premiere because I wanted her to be in on it, because this is her film, her story, it’s very personal. She wrote it and produced it. So we came up with some options,” Villa told The Hollywood Reporter.

Watch the video below:

In a video on Twitter, Villa claimed that she wanted to send a message that would catch people’s attention:

Women are flawed. Women are vulnerable. Woman are strong because of our femininity & flaws, we are not Barbies! We give birth & raise generations & can heal the world. We are life givers & I’m sending a strong message of opposition to those who seek to destroy unborn women.

While speaking with The Hollywood Reporter, Villa said she was not against women’s health care clinics but was speaking out on Planned Parenthood’s attempts to excuse the number of abortions performed at their clinics.

“Yes, I believe in women’s health care clinics, but abortion is not health care and Planned Parenthood has been pushing that and indoctrinating girls with pink and girliness. So that’s why my dress is hot pink and very girly,” Villa said.

The movie has also received some backlash due to its R-rating and depiction of abortion. But Villa said she is glad that people are taking the content of the movie seriously.

“I think that an R rating makes it more notorious. I think you should be at least 14 or 15 to see it,” Villa said. “Everyone knows that even if a movie is PG-13, you’re still taking 8- and 9-year-olds. So I think a PG-13 rating people might think it’s more gentle than it is. It would cause nightmares for a little kid.”

As IJR Red reported, Johnson now works as a pro-life activist that fights to give mothers alternative options to abortion.

FINALLY; someone who gets it that MURDER is not “healthcare”. I’m too old to know or care who this woman is; but I do like the message she sends with that dress to the mobsters at Planned Butcherhood.

Villa is making a statement. Whether it advances her career is up to the audience. I’ve heard some of her material and I will agree that she’s talented.

Villa’s creative dress isn’t unexpected like you say, as she is pretty vocal about her views on different issues — such as her “build the wall” dress at the Grammy Awards. (https://ijr.com/joy-villa-defends-build-wall-dress-grammys/)

Do you think this way of vocalizing her views is a good way to send a message?
