Woman-hero Kesha will take the stage at the the Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s 2016 National Conference, Power + Purpose: 100 Years Strong on Thursday night. The "Tik Tok" singer is a big fan of the reproductive health nonprofit, saying of the organization:
“I am proud to stand with Planned Parenthood. I have used the services of Planned Parenthood since I was a teenager. They have been there, explaining how to maintain my health and giving me compassionate care when topics were hard to address with parents and teachers. From birth control to Pap smears, they were the place I could go and ask for help privately and never had to pay a dime. They are the reason I could get health care before I could afford health insurance. They have been a silent angel for many women, myself included. I, for one, will forever stand with Planned Parenthood because they have always been there for me.”
Additionally, Cecile Richards, President of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, shared the following statement:
“Kesha is a powerful voice for women everywhere. Planned Parenthood is rooted in empowerment, equity and individual rights and freedoms, all things that Kesha has stood for throughout her career. As we celebrate 100 years of Planned Parenthood and look toward our future, we’re proud to have her join us in our fight.”
Great stuff all around. Fingers cross they film the thing so we can all watch it together tomorrow! In the meantime, take our quiz: Who Said It: Kesha or Oprah?
