House Actress Lisa Edelstein Does Pro-Abortion MoveOn Ad

Washington, DC -- Lisa Edelstein, who currently stars as Dr. Lisa Cuddy on the television drama House, has recorded a new television ad for the George Soros-funded MoveOn.org, a liberal pro-abortion activist group, targeting pro-life legislation.

What do people see in this show? When Amber Tamblyn joined up, I checked out a few episodes. She was bland and lifeless and the show has clearly jumped the shark, losing whatever bite it might once have had.

Now, we learn even the actors hate people. Guess I didn’t miss much and won’t miss it in days to come.

House used to be on before 24. I remember being on the FReeper thread early and asking “Who in the world is this obnoxious guy?”

I worked with doctors. I don’t need to be ‘entertained’ by them.

She just put her career on the skids.

Oh, it won’t be obvious immediately, and it won’t be because of direct boycotts by pro-life people or groups. Just call it Karma.

I have watched house at times a while back and really liked this womans acting..

People like this that say things like this and advertise it are the ones that want to make it ok for themselves to do this very thing..God is going to be her judge not man..If she had a partial birth abortion she needs to see what they do..Suck the little babies brains out before they can take a breath,if you don't call that murder then I don't know what to say..Convicted killers have a better death than an innocent baby..I won't put any pictures up because they make me throw up,and if anyone can get this done and not shed a tear then they are not human..

God Help this woman and those like her..

I really liked her character. I don’t like her character any longer.

How is it that there are so many God-less people in show business?

Pity.

Same show that produced the Kumar character dude who bailed on the show at it’s height to take a meaningless job in the Obama admin as some sort of outreach guy.

Apparently, liberalism is a communicable disease. They need an episode on it.

People start developing lesions in their armpits, and initially they think MRSA, but then the victims start buying Nissan Leafs (Leaves?) and drinking corn ethanol, killing themselves. The autopsies show lesions on their brains too, but somehow they are not related to MRSA.

House diagnoses stage four liberalism, and prescribes all victims live in the projects in Camden, NJ for four months. Everybody survives, renouncing their membership in the democrat party, and go on to lead happy, productive lives. Most go on to be Rush 24/7 members.

Joan of Arcadia, and decent in the role (it was the adults who had the real good roles there).

House is still some of the best TV today, of course, thats not saying much. I have a crush on Cuddy, sexy older lady thing. I like the new actress, quite good.

I would wager that most people, who drink corn ethanol regularly, are not infected with liberalism.

I'm not an actor, but I have some thoughts on the subject...

I appreciate a good movie.....or a brilliant actor.....there are some memorable movies that I still like

..only to be disappointed later when I find the same actor shares few or even any of my values....

...I figure these folks are willing to marginalize their standards, values, decorum, modesty --(if they ever had any)-- in Acting Class 101...

I think they are willing to be broken down to basic carnal thought & action and willingly give up any resistance to what is noble, esteemed and worthy.

I think the first questions asked of them is if they will blaspheme God and if they will take off their clothes.

Blaspheming God seems especially popular with most of them, even the women.

I think, for the most part, actors are crude, profane and utterly without soul......I think most of them have sold their souls.

So why are we surprised when the House actress makes a Planned Parenthood commercial....

..it would be out of character not to!

I used to like Hugh Laurie when he was teamed with Stephen Fry, but I guess he wants to be thought ‘serious’ now. As you say, all I got was obnoxious and offensive. That seems too high a price to pay for insight and I really don’t like the idea of narratively connecting the two as if you have to have a curmudgeon if you want topflight skill.

Of course, I mostly saw the end-credits because we only tuned in for ‘24’. Then that went downhill and we stopped watching on Monday altogether.

So if she encourages abortion where would her character, Cuddy, have gotten one to adopt? Do these people ever think things through?

Watching House is like watching the NBA ... everything important happens in the last 10 minutes; you can skip the rest.

Doesn’t do a thing to my day because that’s what I basically figured. Her father is Russ Tamblyn, after all, who has been certifiable for decades.

I watched 3 or 4 House shows and it quickly dawned on me hat every show is the same with same plot.

Somebody is dying with a disease that only House can cure and he always cures it just before the show goes off.

I didn’t recognise this baby killers name unti they mentioned the show.

Why is it that everyone in the entertainment communtiy is in favor of baby killing, Homosexualsm drug addicts, fornicators and anything illegal immoral or fattening.Well: not fattening , because I know they all want to kiss the Wookie’s butt.

It’s rarely, if ever, enlightening to compare the actors to their roles.

That’s why they call it “acting”.

What do people see in this show?

It was novel in its first year. It probably should've been "one and done."

I don't know that I'll ever want to see the show again after this. It's one thing to privately hold abhorrent views but to make an ad for abortion? That goes too far. Edelstein might as well be in a clinic herself shredding babies. Metaphorically, blood will be on her hands.

He was a heck of a dancer as a kid: West Side Story, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, Tom Thumb.

You should check out ‘Twin Peaks’ if you want to see where his head went. I’m not at all sure he needed to act in the role of Dr. Jacoby. He also played dog-walker god for his daughter on ‘Joan of Arcadia’. One of the more interesting ‘gods’ in the show.

I worked with doctors. I don’t need to be ‘entertained’ by them.

I don't find real life doctors entertaining either. But was pleasantly surprised by a new Brit com series called "Doc Martin" (or at least it is new to me - it has been shown on tv in the UK for some years now)

The doc in this series is such a departure from the stock doc in hospital dramas. He is quite entertaining.

Also the scenery is fantastic, shot on-site in a beautiful unspoiled town in Cornwall.

One other good thing - there is a pro-life plotline in the Doc Martin series.

I have seen pro-life plots in other British tv productions, to my surprise. I guess the British attitude toward abortion, even amongst the elites who create their tv entertainment, is actually somewhat more conservative than it is here stateside.

LISA EDELSTEIN steps in it!

Because of Lisa Edelstein's appearance on the moveon.org (liberal blog) planned parenthood abortion alert commercial, I, too, will no longer be watching "House", even though I have enjoyed Hugh Laurie and his amazing acting talents over the many years.

I will not be watching unless the writers "take her out" by scripting her in a life ending scene of an abortion in her hospital, performed by a "professional child butcher" ... ironic as it would be.

Dr. House will show up at the end and declare her illness as "slut", that he was a part of, in his godless moment, with this whore.
