Keshia Knight Pulliam is sharing laughs with family members and friends while pregnant. The actress recently gave Instagram fans an update on her expectancy by sharing a picture of herself posing while supporting the Georgia Campaign for Adolescent Power and Potential (GCAPP).
“Ella & I had fun last night supporting GCAPP with @egoent & @fauxdecor,” she said of her evening spent with loved ones. “Our conversations are epic,” Keshia added.
Pulliam has been in the public eye lately because of her stance on Planned Parenthood. The actress joins dozens of entertainers and clergymen who stand in solidarity with the organization in recording a special 100th celebration video on Friday.
“You have to challenge people when they say they’re pro-life when the only life they seem to care about is life inside the womb,” Reverend William Barber II shared in the video. “Outside the womb, they’ll send you to the death penalty,” he added. Keshia also chimed in by saying, “My vagina is no politician’s business.”
Planned Parenthood was founded by Margaret Sanger who began the organization with the goal of empowering women to take charge of their fertility. Today, Planned Parenthood carries out the mission of:
- providing contraception and other health services to women and men
- funding research on birth control and educating specialists and the public about the results
- advancing access to family planning in the United States and around the world
Although conservative politicians have condemned the organization for its support of abortion over the years, Planned Parenthood has managed to garner the respect and support of the masses. In fact, the organization recently funded a $2 million ad campaign that slammed supporters of a bill designed to defund Planned Parenthood. The ads placed special focus on Sen. Richard Burr (R-N.C.), Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.), Rep. Joe Heck (R-Nev.) and Sen. Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) who have a record of standing in solidarity with issues that limit a woman’s right to choose.
“Each one of these Republican Senate candidates has voted to defund Planned Parenthood and staked out positions that threaten millions of women across this country,” Deirdre Schifeling, the executive director of Planned Parenthood Votes, revealed in a press release. “Not only is this agenda dangerous, but it is incredibly unpopular.”
Keshia Knight Pulliam is expecting her first child with estranged husband Edgerton “Ed” Hartwell. She is expecting her little one to arrive in coming weeks.
