Fans have been left livid after a celebrity contestant on The Price Is Right generously donated most of his winnings to Planned Parenthood.
Keep scrolling to for more about the shocking episode, and to read about the controversy surrounding the donation...
The Price Is Right has long been America's favorite game show.Originating back in 1956, the show has been delighting audiences for decades.
The rules are pretty straight forward...Contestants on the show compete to win cash and a variety of prizes by guessing the pricing of merchandise.
4 contestants are selected by the announcer and are then proceeded to Contestant's Row.A prize is showcased, and each contestant gives a bid in order from left to right and must bid as close as they can to the actual retail price without going over.
The contestant who bids the closest to the actual retail price without going over wins the prize...And then gets to play a pricing game. As most of you will probably know, a lot of money is up for grabs.
The show has been a roaring success over the years...And has hosted an array of different celebrities as guest stars... Oh, and an adorably young Aaron Paul before his Breaking Bad days, of course.
But, recently, the popular game show has come under serious fire.
via: GettyMonday night's episode of The Price Is Right at Night featured special guest, RuPaul, and there is a whole lot of controversy surrounding it.
While the Drag Race star didn't actually play...
via: GettyThe show pledged to match the value of all the prizes and donate it to a charity of his choosing.
Anyway, the contestants went on to completely smash the rounds...
via: GettyMeaning that Ru had a staggering $97,266 to donate.
And which charity did Ru choose?
via: GettyThe LGBTQ+ activist chose Planned Parenthood, a nonprofit organization that has provided medical support and reproductive services to communities for over a century.
Planned Parenthood has long been the topic of controversy...
via: GettyFor decades, opinions have been divided about the organization, with many criticizing it for its pro-abortion values.
Anti-abortionists have long labeled those who work for and support Planned Parenthood as "monsters"...And some have even insisted that they offer no contraceptive services, only abortions.
The organization has always been the primary subject of scrutiny for these pro-lifers...
via: GettyAnd many have attempted - and failed - to bring down the service once and for all.
So, obviously, Ru's generous donation hasn't settled too well with all the pro-lifers out there.Since the episode aired, anti-abortionists have come out in full force, valiantly brandishing their "baby-killer" insults.
It's needless to say that people are not happy.Pro-lifers have taken to Twitter to express their dismay over Ru's decision, with some going as far as to say that "they celebrate the deaths" of babies.
Apparently, the Price Is Right "plays to kill babies."

But some people went to rather dramatic measures to express their annoyance...This Twitter user took the time out his day to photoshop a model fetus into a still shot of the game show. I don't know what he thinks this crudely edited picture will achieve, but getting people to agree with his opinions is probably unlikely.
And others attacked Ru directly.
