Jennifer Lawrence has been outspoken about her support for Planned Parenthood, sharing in an interview with Glamour Magazine that she would not have had access to birth control, condoms and other preventative measures growing up if it had not been for the service of the organization. Many celebrities chose to speak out and share their support when a Senate vote came about to pull funding from the organization. Here are some other celebs who support Planned Parenthood as much as JLaw does.

1. Elizabeth Banks

Elizabeth Banks did a video testimonial in 2012 to support funding for Planned Parenthood, which she used following college when she did not have health insurance. “Yes I got birth control, but it was for my massive migraine headaches and my heavy flow. Yeah, I’m on record saying I had a heavy flow. And unfortunately these are the types of things that I don’t want to discuss with employers; I don’t want to talk about that with my employer. That’s between me and my doctor; and at the time my doctor happened to be with Planned Parenthood.”

Lena Dunham has been a huge advocate for Planned Parenthood. In a Vanity Fair interview she was asked about her heroes and responded: “The men and women who work at Planned Parenthood centers across America.” The actress has even done a Saturday Night Live sketch where she took on the “men’s rights” activist who shut down two Planned Parenthood centers.

4. Gabrielle Union

Gabrielle Union partnered with Planned Parenthood to design a shirt to support the Planned Parenthood Action Fund. She has said: “It’s hard to believe we’re still living in a time when some politicians believe they should make decisions for women about birth control and basic health care. That’s why I’m always proud to support Planned Parenthood Action Fund’s efforts to engage women around critical issues in the upcoming election through their Women Are Watching campaign. We have to vote like our access to birth control and basic health care is on the line this year – because it is.”
