Jennifer Lawrence Speaks Out in Support of Planned Parenthood

Jennifer Lawrence took the cover of Glamour magazine’s February 2016 issue, where she opened up about Planned Parenthood’s role in her life.

“Planned Parenthood is so much more [than abortion]… 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,” the 25-year-old Joy actress told the mag. “And now [gestures widely] 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?”

On being famous: “I think that we should be allowed time off [from being famous]… Three months. ‘Oh, it’s my three months off. You can’t photograph me.’ I would love to be able to control being photographed. Then I wouldn’t have a new headline out today that I wore the same jeans three days in a row. [Laughs.]”

On being lovably clumsy: “I spilled milk this morning. Last night I spilled red wine all over the rug. All I want to be able to do is just walk from one place to another without falling! It’s so annoying, honestly. And now I’ve gone from the charming, like, ‘Oh my God, whoops, I fell’—now it really pisses me off. ’Cause it’s embarrassing now. So now I fall, and I’m like, ‘Stop looking at me! Don’t take a picture!’”

    The myths of romantic love, the superiority of monogamous coupledom, marriage etc. The social acceptance in being attached, together with the economic disparity between women and men play. We need to examine our often knee jerk responses and have an honest debate on all the issues surrounding sexuality without the fear of censure from either the state or the moral “guardians” of either the left or right.
