Katy Perry made a $10,000 donation to Planned Parenthood on Friday. The pop star announced she was donating out of fear the organization will be defunded under Donald Trump’s presidency.

As Gossip Cop has reported, Perry was one of Donald Trump’s celebrity opponents and Hillary Clinton’s biggest star supporters during the 2016 election. Clinton, of course, advocated for Planned Parenthood and women’s healthcare during her campaign, while Trump indicated he would defund the non-profit. Following his victory earlier this week, Perry called for people to “peacefully protest” and “take care of your mental health.”

Now she’s going one step further. “It’s time to turn words into action! There are so many steps to take, but my first vow is to support organizations that may have their funding support taken from them in the future by the government,” Perry posted on Instagram.

She continued, “I am making a public donation to Planned Parenthood for the teenage me who made several visits to first a clinic in Santa Barbara and then Los Angeles, CA to educate myself on my sexual health, a subject I had little to no information on because of my sheltered upbringing. I had no idea how things worked down there, and had no idea how to make a plan for them.”

“Planned Parenthood educated me on my body and my reproductive health, so that I could focus on my dreams and using my voice until I knew the timing was right for me to make a plan to have a family. Since then, I have been able to focus wholeheartedly on bringing messages of strength and becoming a voice for others. Without this education, I may have had a different life path,” the songstress wrote.

She acknowledged this is “just my experience,” but went on to note that “Planned Parenthood’s broader range of services can sometimes be the only medical support low-income families ever see.” Perry further wrote, “I am grateful for and stand in support of Planned Parenthood for giving Katheryn Hudson the knowledge to plan, and for continuing to be a haven for women to learn all options for their future. Now, more than ever, we all need to protect and create safe places for each other. I hope I can help inspire you to make a gift as well, and become a member and an ally.”

Perry concluded her post giving the address “to show your support,” stating, “#wewontgoback.” The image accompanying the text was of Planned Parenthood’s donation page, where donors have the option of selecting amounts of $35, $60, $100 or $100. Instead, Perry put in $10,000. See below.

That is just my experience, but I know Planned Parenthood’s broader range of services can sometimes be the only medical support low-income families ever see. I know what it’s like to need help. I came from a lower- to middle-class family and never grew up with the option of health insurance. I remember having 13 cavities as a teenager, and the best option my parents could come up with was to try and take me to Mexico because we couldn’t afford anything in California. I am grateful for and stand in support of Planned Parenthood for giving Katheryn Hudson the knowledge to plan, and for continuing to be a haven for women to learn all options for their future. Now, more than ever, we all need to protect and create safe places for each other. I hope I can help inspire you to make a gift as well, and become a member and an ally.
