The No. 1 rated daytime television series, “The Price Is Right,” donated nearly $100,000 to Planned Parenthood during its recent primetime special, “The Price is Right at Night.”
The CBS special aired the evening of May 11 with regular gameshow host Drew Carey being joined by Emmy-winning drag queen RuPaul, host of “RuPaul’s Drag Race,” currently in its 12th season on VH1.
As the special guest host of TV’s longest running gameshow, RuPaul selected Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider, to receive a matching gift from the iconic gameshow’s prize winnings totaling $97,266.
RuPaul, who did not dress in his signature drag queen style, cheered alongside the gameshow’s six contestants as all of them won their respective games. With two contestants winning automobiles, the prize total for all contestants was valued at nearly $100,000.
While a CBS press release promoting the special episode described Planned Parenthood simply as a “charity,” LifeSite News reported that the organization “killed 345,672 preborn children” in 2019, according to its own numbers. The pro-life website also reported that last year the abortion giant received more than $616 million from the federal government, as well as $430 million in private revenue and $591 million in charitable contributions.
RuPaul, an LGBTQ activist, is reportedly developing several crossdressing-themed entertainment projects including the promotion of children’s participation in the drag world.
One of RuPaul’s causes, “Drag Queen Story Time,” which began in a San Francisco public library in 2015, has grown in popularity across the country to include more than 30 nonprofit chapters in the United States, according to the New York Times.
Last year, Ohio state House Speaker Larry Householder called the “Drag Queen Story Time” in Ohio public libraries a “stunningly bizarre breach of the public trust” in a letter to the Ohio Library Council.
“Taxpayers aren’t interested in seeing their hard-earned dollars being used to teach teenage boys how to become drag queens,” Householder wrote in his May 2019 letter.
