Actress Debra Messing showed her support of Planned Parenthood on Thursday when she tweeted a picture of her standing beside Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards. The caption read: “Stunned by the Power & Magic of this Warrior Woman. DNC Women’s Caucus with @CecileRichards.”
The Will & Grace actress has been outspoken regarding her political views. She has publically endorsed Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, a radically pro-abortion candidate, according to Yahoo News. Messing also spoke at the Democratic National Convention (DNC) on Tuesday, as the party approved its most pro-abortion platform ever.

Regarding attending the DNC, Messing said, “I’m really, really excited. I’ve never been, and to go with a candidate I really believe in… this is really special. I told them I am available to support her campaign in any way that I can, and I will travel on her behalf as well.”
There were many celebrity endorsements at the DNC. Another star who spoke at the event was actress Elizabeth Banks, according to Yahoo. The Hunger Games actress has shown her support of Hillary Clinton and Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion provider in the United States, several times.
In a 2015 interview with Cosmopolitan, Banks expressed her opinion on abortion: “The most important thing is that all-male legislators don’t tell us what to do with our bodies. It’s our medical decisions, it’s our lives – it can LITERALLY be someone’s life.” Another speaker at the event was Lena Dunham, an outspoken supporter of Clinton and Planned Parenthood. In her speech, Dunham clearly stated that the abortion should be considered a human right.

“I’m a pro-choice, feminist, sexual assault survivor with a chronic reproductive illness,” Dunham said. “Donald and his party think I should be punished for exercising my constitutional rights, and his rhetoric about women takes us back to a time when we were meant to be beautiful and silent. Meanwhile, 22 years ago, Hillary declared that women’s rights are human rights.”
Unfortunately, many celebrities are using their names to promote abortion. The feel-good songs and countless celebrities at the DNC appeared impressive, however they are ultimately backing a candidate who supports abortion in any circumstance. These celebrities want to make abortion a right for women, yet in doing so they fail to recognize that the unborn deserve rights, too.
