After the horrifying tragedy at a Colorado Planned Parenthood, Celebs like Kerry Washington to take to Twitter to express their condolences to the victims of the shooting. They’ve vowed to #StandWithPP!
Kerry Washington and a plethora of other celebs couldn’t believe it when they heard about the tragic events in Colorado Springs, CO on Friday, November 27. A shooter went on a rampage in the parking lot of a Planned Parenthood clinic, then entering the building. He killed three and left nine others injured after being captured by police. Kerry and others expressed their sorrow over social media, letting the victims know that they were in their thoughts — and that Planned Parenthood wasn’t going to be forgotten, either!

The silence from the GOP candidates on the murders at #PlannedParenthood is telling. And sad.

What beautiful prayers and sentiments from such strong supporters! These celebs know that Planned Parenthood is the biggest provider of women’s health services in the United States, and the fact that it was allegedly targeted by a gunman is an unconscionable crime. Three lives were lost, and nine others forever changed by the shooter’s bullets.
Police have identified the alleged gunman as Robert Lewis Dear, 57. He is being held without bail in the Colorado Springs Jail, and will appear in court on Monday, November 30. Police are still trying to determine Robert’s motives in the incident. Whether he had a problem with services at Planned Parenthood, or different issues, his alleged actions still remain gruesome and unacceptable, and celebs like Kerry, Chrissy and John know that something needed to be said.
