This week drag queen RuPaul joined host Drew Carey for the prime-time special The Price Is Right at Night to raise money for Planned Parenthood. RuPaul, the producer of the reality TV show RuPaul’s Drag Race, matched the evening’s total prize value with a donation to Planned Parenthood of nearly $100,000.
Peter LaBarbera of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality said, “[Planned Parenthood’s] in the business of killing unborn babies. The Price is Right should not be raising money for them. This is despicable and it's a betrayal.”
According to Planned Parenthood’s latest annual report, the organization isn’t hurting for cash. As reported by CBN News, for the year ended June 30, 2019, the abortion giant had $1.6 billion in revenue.
This is not the first time that the longest-running series in network television history has produced its charity-supporting special. Last December, The Price is Right aired two The Price Is Right at Night specials, one on December 22 with the cast of SEAL Team to raise money for the Headstrong Project, which supports the mental health of post-911 vets, and one on December 23 with Seth Rogen to raise money for the Alzheimer's nonprofit Hilarity for Charity. Both were ratings winners. But with backlash on social media for Monday’s special featuring RuPaul, it remains to be seen whether the network will suffer by losing some of its most loyal Price Is Right fans.
