J. Law Relied on Planned Parenthood as a Teen Because of Her Religious Mom
Jennifer Lawrence just admitted in an interview that she, too, had to hide condoms and birth control from her mom as a teen — and she relied on Planned Parenthood to get them.
Lawrence is on Glamour’s February cover, and a teaser of the interview with Cindi Lieve just dropped today. In it, she details how much Planned Parenthood — the nonprofit organization that provides affordable birth control, abortions, and other female-centric healthcare to women without insurance — means to her.
And as it turns out, she seriously relied on PP as a teen. Like many of us, she had a strict mom who was not into the idea of providing her teenaged daughter with birth control or condoms. But that didn’t stop J. Law.
“My mom was really religious with me when I was young,” she explained. “She’s not so much anymore. 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.”
That’s right, she grew up in a “Jesus house.” You learn something new about J. Law every day.
Anyway, Lawrence went to Planned Parenthood to facilitate her budding sex life, “and now,” she said, she’s “a successful woman who has not had a pregnancy.”
She’s now a staunch supporter of Planned Parenthood, pointing out in the Glamour interview that attacking PP “isn’t an attack on abortions; it’s an attack on women.”
“What harm comes from supplying people with birth control, condoms, Pap smears, and cancer screenings?” she added.
We know causation isn’t correlation and everything, but this is pretty solid evidence that practicing safe sex could lead to becoming a movie star, right?
