Pink supports NGO amidst controversy
Singer Pink has extended support to Planned Parenthood, an American NGO for reproductive health as well as maternal and child health services, amidst controversy following calls from Republicans to cut its federal funding.
“Planned Parenthood was the only organisation in my town growing up available to teach young girls @ sexual responsibility. I stand with PP,” the So what singer wrote on micro-blogging website Twitter.
“Do these Rep. hopefuls plan on visiting every town in America handing out pamphlets, hugs, life-saving info + screening?! What’s their plan,” Pink wrote. A fan posted, “I like the idea that someone might support people when they need help, but I don’t like PP selling baby parts for cash.”
