Pro-choice celebrities took to Twitter this Mother’s Day to (ironically?) celebrate life.
While they often bash attempts to defund Planned Parenthood or restrict abortion, pro-choice actresses acknowledged the value of their mothers – mothers that gave them life – this Mother’s Day.
Some, like Girls’ creator Lena Dunham made “choice” front and center of her Mother’s Day wish. Dunham, a rabid abortion advocate and Planned Parenthood supporter, chimed in on the day – with an insert about “choice.”
Likewise, comedian Amy Schumer, an abortion-jokester, sent out a public message to her mom.
“Happy Mother's Day. Thanks for keeping me!” she posted on Twitter alongside a picture of her mom reading to her as a child.
A Lena Dunham and Planned Parenthood well-wisher, Sara Bareilles wrote, “Happy Mom's Day to everyone out there who lifts up and loves somebody. My mom let me learn to be myself by knowing I was loved. Thanks mom.”
