Chrissy Teigen and John Legend Donate to Planned Parenthood Following Deadly Shooting in Colorado
By Desiree Murphy
Chrissy Teigen and John Legend truly are the definition of a power couple.
Following the deadly shooting at a Planned Parenthood clinic that left three dead and nine injured in Colorado Springs, Colorado, on Friday, celebrities took to social media to express their grief and show their support for the non-profit organization that provides reproductive health services.
Teigen took to Twitter to announce that she would be donating to the organization, and she encouraged her and her husband's followers to do the same.
"Every time s**t like this happens, John and I immediately make another donation to planned parenthood," the 29-year-old pregnant model tweeted, followed by a retweet from her husband and another tweet accompanied by a direct link to the donation site.
Every time shit like this happens, john and I immediately make another donation to planned parenthood.
"The heart of Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains (PPRM) is broken as we try to make sense of the horrific tragedy that struck our beloved health center in Colorado Springs," she wrote. "Our thoughts are with all those who were impacted and particularly the two families of the two civilians and one heroic law-enforcement officer whose lives were lost."
"Right now, women's health opponents are pushing to defund Planned Parenthood health centers nationwide, cutting off millions of patients from essential care like birth control, cancer screenings, and access to safe and legal abortion," another statement on the site reads.
Along with Teigen and Legend, celebrities, organizations and political figures spoke up on the heartbreaking attacks over social media. Many used the trending hashtag, #StandWithPP, which recently gained attention following a summer of unrest towards Planned Parenthood's doctors, nursers and patients.
In happier news, Teigen and Legend were in good spirits on Thursday as they celebrated Thanksgiving with a yummy home-cooked meal, which they posted about on Instagram. Earlier this month, ET caught up with Legend where he talked about his wife's pregnancy cravings.
"It's not that different [from her normal cravings," he revealed. "I think she likes sweets a little more than she used to but other than that... She likes to eat, and we have a little baby to eat for too."
