Celebs Support Planned Parenthood
A very pregnant Ana Gasteyer of "Saturday Night Live" and Wendie Malick of "Just Shoot Me" were just a couple of the stars on hand at a Washington, D.C., gala celebrating Planned Parenthood's 85th anniversary and honoring the TV series "Law and Order," "Sex and the City," and "Days of Our Lives" for dealing with reproductive issues in their storylines, reports PEOPLE. The party was kicked off by Gasteyer, 34, who displayed her belly and declared herself "this year's poster woman for Planned Parenthood." "I'm here tonight because, particularly as a pregnant woman, I felt that it would make a nice statement of advocacy that Planned Parenthood represents a lot of different issues and a lot of different causes -- among them healthy and safe prenatal planning," she told the audience. Malick, 51, who attended Ohio Wesleyan University as a student, told PEOPLE that she has long been a Planned Parenthood supporter. "Planned Parenthood was the first thing I ever marched for in college in 1970," she said. Also at the ceremony, actor Jason Cook, 21, accepted an award on behalf of daytime drama "Days Of Our Lives" for a storyline about two teenagers grappling with abstinence and safe sex. "My character (Shawn Brady) is (the most prudish) character on daytime," Cook joked. "But now that he's learned about safe sex, it looks like he's going to be getting it on this summer, very safely."
