The highest-paid woman in music is donating $10,000 to Planned Parenthood.
Katheryn Hudson, better known publicly as Katy Perry, posted on Instagram intention to donate to USAs largest abortion provider because, in her words, the organization "may have their funding support taken from them in the future by the government."
President-elect Donald Trump said on the campaign trail and reiterated in a September letter that he is “committed to defunding Planned Parenthood as long as they continue to perform abortions and reallocating their funding to community health centres that provide comprehensive healthcare for women."
Perry explained that she is giving Planned Parenthood money in honour of "the teenage me who made several visits to first a clinic in Santa Barbara and then Los Angeles," and praised the abortion service for educating her "on my sexual health, a subject I had little to no information on because of my sheltered upbringing."
Perry said the abortion services freed her from childbearing so she could "focus on my dreams" and pursue her career. "Without this education, I may have had a different life path," she wrote.
