Actresses Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Schumer told their fans Saturday that “women can’t be free” without the legal right to abort their unborn babies.
Lawrence (“Hunger Games”), who is pregnant with her first child, and Schumer participated in the Women’s March with thousands of other abortion activists, calling for legalized abortion on demand and taxpayer-funded abortions, Yahoo News reports. The theme for the march was “Rally for Abortion Justice.”
Schumer posted a photo of them together on Instagram, Lawrence visibly pregnant while holding a pro-abortion sign.
“I don’t have a uterus and she is pregnant but we out here @womensmarch @plannedparenthood #rallyforabortionjustice,” Schumer wrote.

Schumer’s sign read, “Abortion is essential” and Lawrence held a sign that stated, “Women can’t be free if they can’t control their bodies.”
Commenting on their post, actress Sharon Stone praised the two, writing, “BRAVA,” according to the report.
Lawrence and Schumer have been involved in abortion advocacy for years. In 2016, Lawrence praised the abortion chain Planned Parenthood for her success, saying: “And 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. … And now I am a successful woman who has not had a pregnancy.”
On Saturday, pro-abortion protesters gathered in cities across the country Saturday for the Women’s March. Co-sponsored by Planned Parenthood and other pro-abortion groups, the protest focused a lot on the Texas heartbeat law, which prohibits abortions once an unborn baby’s heartbeat is detectable, about six weeks of pregnancy.
The law, which went into effect Sept. 1, is the first of its kind allowed to be enforced, and pro-life leaders estimate it has saved as many as 3,000 babies’ lives so far.
Pro-abortion groups also are angry that the U.S. Supreme Court agreed to hear a major abortion case out of Mississippi in December, one that directly challenges Roe v. Wade and could allow states to protect unborn babies by banning abortions again.
Since Roe, nearly 63 million unborn babies have been legally aborted in the U.S. Polls consistently show that a strong majority of Americans oppose abortions in the second and third trimesters and many support heartbeat laws that protect unborn babies at their earliest stage of life.
