In the most recent Vanity Fair, Katy Perry opens up about her strict religious upbringing and how Planned Parenthood made a big impact on her sexual education. Click through for her quote and to read what other celebrities have said about supporting Planned Parenthood, including those involved with the organization's recent PSA campaign.
"The House passed a bill to eliminate our country's family planning program and to stop Planned Parenthood health centers from receiving any federal money to provide life-saving preventative care. That means no money for cervical cancer screenings and breast exams. No money for testing and treatment of STDs, not even testing for HIV. No money for birth control . . . For many people, especially those with low incomes, Planned Parenthood is their only source of health care."
"Congress finally passed the health care reform bill, and President Obama signed it into law. It's the single biggest legislative advance in women's health in 45 years . . . But our work isn't over yet. The bill includes unfair restrictions on abortion coverage. Rest assured, Planned Parenthood will keep fighting to fix the abortion restrictions before they go into effect in 2014. In the meantime, Planned Parenthood centers will be providing health care to many of the millions of newly insured women."
