Yesterday, 31-year-old Jennifer Lawrence, who is now expecting her first child, was spotted at a protest march in New York with 40-year-old Amy Schumer.
On Saturday, rallies were held in all 50 US states in support of women's rights to a safe termination of pregnancy. The reason for public outrage was a controversial law recently passed in Texas, according to which abortions were almost completely banned. By law, it is prohibited to perform abortions after the sixth week of pregnancy, that is, from the moment when the fetus is found to have a heartbeat. This also applies to those cases where pregnancy occurred as a result of rape or incest.
Like many protesters, Amy and Jennifer came to the rally with placards to express their position.
Women can't be free if they don't control their body,
- says the Lawrence poster.
Abortions are necessary,
- it says on Amy's poster.
I don't have a uterus, and she's pregnant, but we're still here,
- Schumer signed a joint photo on her Instagram.
Recall that the comedic actress has been struggling with endometriosis for a long time, and recently underwent surgery to remove the uterus to cope with the pain. According to Amy, after that her condition improved significantly. The actress and her husband Chris Fisher have a two-year-old son, Gene.
The fact that Lawrence and her husband, gallery owner Cook Maroney, are expecting a child, became known in September of this year. Both will become parents for the first time.
