Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – Katy Perry took to Instagram to announce that she donated $10,000 to Planned Parenthood and revealed the reason behind the donation.

Perry is a huge Hillary Clinton, who backs female health care and abortion, supporter. She said that she made the donation because she wanted to help in supporting organizations that might suffer from having their funding be taken away from the upcoming administration. Perry did not drop any name in the caption but her caption seemingly pertained to president-elect Donald Trump since he does not support abortion.

The 32-year-old singer’s screen grab of what her activity was in the website of Planned Parenthood showed the frequent amounts that are being donated. Perry’s $10,000 donation will be shared equally between the local Planned Parenthood affiliate and Planned Parenthood Federation of America.

Together with the photo, Perry wrote a lengthy caption saying that there are so many steps to take in order to stick with her promises. She went on to say that the reason behind the donation to Planned Parenthood was because of what happened during her teenager years. She shared that when she was a teenager, she made several visits to clinics in Santa Barbara and Los Angeles in order to educate herself regarding sexual health. She pointed out that being a member of a conservative family, her sheltered upbringing did not allow her to know more about sexual health.

The girlfriend of Orlando Bloom said that Planned Parenthood educated her on her body and her reproductive health so that she could focus on her dreams until she would realize that the time is right for her to have her own family. She noted that if she was not educated by Planned Parenthood, she would have had a different path.

She also urged her followers to pledge a donation by visiting www.plannedparenthood.org.
