When the Planned Parenthood shooting happened in November, Amy Schumer met up with Jennifer Lawrence that morning. "[Amy] was crying," Jennifer tells Glamour, who interviewed her for its February 2016 cover story when the news broke. "She had just…seen the news about the shooting at Planned Parenthood…It's so awful. It isn't an attack on abortions; it's an attack on women. Because Planned Parenthood is so much more [than abortion]."
Jen can testify personally: "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."
"And now, [because I had Planned Parenthood,] I am a successful woman who has not had a pregnancy….but seriously. What harm comes from supplying people with birth control, condoms, Pap smears, and cancer screenings?"
With women's rights in and out of Hollywood, the actress gets "it's not smart, businesswise, to be opinionated. But then what's the point in having a voice at all if I'm not going to use it for what I truly believe in?"
