Within a day of the deadly shooting at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs, celebrities turned to social media to express their grief – and to reiterate that they still #StandwithPP.

As the scene continued to unfold in Colorado, pregnant model Chrissy Teigen tweeted Friday that “Every time s— like this happens, john and I immediately make another donation to planned parenthood.”

Husband John Legend retweeted the message, and she also shared a link to the non-profit’s online donation page, and well as sharing additional messages of support.

Kerry Washington, who spoke out on behalf of the organization this summer as the Senate considered a vote to strip Planned Parenthood of its funding, also tweeted a message of peace.

“Prayers to #ColoradoSprings & #PlannedParenthood” she wrote late Friday.

 

Actress and director Elizabeth Banks, another outspoken Planned Parenthood advocate, simply retweeted presidential candidate Hillary Clinton‘s tweet, who shared a statement from Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains President and CEO Vicki Cowart regarding the shooting.

 

Actor Mark Ruffalo retweeted fellow Democratic presidential nominee Bernie Sanders‘ tweet about the tragedy.
