Pro-Choice Actresses Celebrate Mother's Day

Celebrities supporting abortion, Planned Parenthood celebrate life.

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.” 

“This Mother's Day,” Dunham tweeted, “let's vow to protect our right to become mothers when and how we want #choice #blessthemothers.” 

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. 

Planned Parenthood supporter actress Kate Walsh also posted a picture of her “#mama.” 

Although she once called unborn babies “goo,” comedian Sarah Silverman still appreciated her mother’s role. “HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY to my Momma, Beth Ann O'Hara,” she composed in a tweet. 

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.” 

A complainer about the “bullsh*t war” on abortion, Roseanne Barr tweeted a “happy mother's day” too.  

Jenny Slate, star of the “romantic abortion comedyObvious Child said a “Happy Mother's Day to my mom.” 

Eva Longoria and Kerry Washington, who once showed support for abortion-giant Planned Parenthood and Roe v.Wade, also tweeted their gratitude.
