She’s showing us that she’s standing by the organization! The soulful singer took to Twitter to share her support for the women’s rights organization after Republicans have recently called to cut its funding. She wrote:

An anti-abortion group called Center for Medical Progress claims PP is performing illegal activities with the fetus tissue they recover after abortions.

It alleges to have video evidence of Planned Parenthood employees discussing selling body parts for research and profiting off the sale, which is completely against the law.

However, organization officials say the footage is edited and that the organization isn’t doing anything wrong. President Cecile Richards said in a statement:

“The allegation that Planned Parenthood profits in any way from tissue donation is not true.”

She says they don’t make any money by contributing to the research, but will occasionally have travel costs covered, just like any typical medical facility:

“There is no financial benefit for tissue donation for either the patient or for Planned Parenthood. In some instances, actual costs, such as the cost to transport tissue to leading research centers, are reimbursed, which is standard across the medical field.”

The pop powerhouse received a tweet from a Twitter user who addressed this accusation:

She responded:

We love that Pink is very vocal about standing up for what she believes in! But what do U think? Let us know in the comments!
