This past Saturday the very successful women’s March on DC was held and it inspire many women to take a stand against President Trump and his team. One of those women in particular was pop sensation Halsey. Halsey marched alongside women just like her and felt compelled and motivated to do more.As reported by Elle.com the New Jersey native took to Twitter to deliver this message to her followers:
“Today, I marched on Washington in solidarity with the women I love. The CIS women. The trans women. The WOC. The single mothers. The LGBT. Women of every religion, class, and origin. And the men that supported these women. I marched with stitches in my stomach, my pelvis, and my vagina. I marched in pain and I marched in comfort. The comfort of knowing that I am recovering from a surgery that treats endometriosis, a disease that ravages the reproductive organs. A disease that put my body through hell. The emotional and physical hell of a miscarriage at 20 years old. A disease that would have remained dangerously untreated without the services Planned Parenthood offered me years ago. A clean, caring facility that treated me with compassion, treated me like a warrior. A facility I turned to because I trusted it. A safe place. I am honored to have supported Planned Parenthood as one of the many causes that put me on the streets of Washington D.C. today.”
Following this tweet, Halsey set a challenge for every re-tweet that she gets on that specific tweet it will earn a $1 donation. The $1 turned to $100,000 and it since been donated to Planned Parenthood.
