It seems Lena Dunham didn’t waste her opportunity as host of "Saturday Night Live" to continue her radical feminist agenda.

When she wasn’t promoting sex and nudity, the star of the HBO show “Girls” was giving pro-abortion Planned Parenthood a pretty nice plug. In one of the night’s skits, Dunham joined five other female cast members for a jewelry party. One of the women, Marisol, brought along her boyfriend Bruce. After depicting him as a “men’s rights activist” who doesn’t believe in equal pay for men and women, Dunham’s character gets most offended when Marisol tells her he shut down two Planned Parenthood clinics.

“Bruce, you shut down two Planned Parenthoods!”

She quickly jumped to the organization’s defense.

“Marisol, do you know what Planned Parenthood is? It’s a place where women can go for low-cost medical advice and care.”

She left out that the organization performed 40 percent of the nation’s abortions last year. But of course, only rosy descriptions for Planned Parenthood on NBC.

This isn’t the only time SNL has shown its true colors. In fact, the show has a history of setting its own political and cultural agendas.

Looks like not everyone was impressed with Dunham though, as ratings plummeted – and unluckily for her, she can’t blame it on having to compete with the Olympics.
