Maggie Gyllenhaal has penned a piece in Glamour in strong support of Planned Parenthood.  Go Maggie!

Here's some of what she has to say:

My mother was very politically active and taught both my brother and me that it is everyone's responsibility as a citizen and as a person in the world to fight for what you believe in. And what I believe very strongly is that every woman has the right to decide what she can do with her body.

I've been a Planned Parenthood supporter my whole life—since my mom took me to a rally when I was in sixth grade. It's chilling to think of this resource being taken away. I have a five-year-old daughter, and I'm pregnant with my second child. I know when my children are older, I will be taking them to events like the one I went to with my mom. I hope we'll be celebrating our freedoms and rights, not fighting for them once again as we are now.

Read the full piece.
