Jennifer Lawrence Is A Staunch Supporter Of Planned Parenthood
For her February cover issue, the actress tells Glamour what Planned Parenthood has meant to her:
"Planned Parenthood is so much more [than abortion]. My mom was really religious with me when I was young. She’s not so much anymore. And I wouldn’t have been able to get birth control if it weren’t for Planned P. I wouldn't have been able to get condoms and birth control and all these things I needed as a normal teenager who was growing up in a Jesus house." She further vocalized her support for the organization, saying "But seriously. What harm comes from supplying people with birth control, condoms, Pap smears, and cancer screenings?"
