On Saturday, October 2, the comedian, who recently revealed that she had undergone a hysterectomy to treat an debilitating illness, told her Instagram page a photo of her standing at a rally with the Oscar-winning actress, who is expecting her and her husband Cooke Maroney‘s first child.
That day, thousands of people gathered at hundreds of women’s rallies nationwide to protest against abortions. The protests took place a month after a new Texas law banning abortions after six weeks of pregnancy, the most restrictive abortion law in the United States, came into force.
“I do not have a uterus and she is pregnant, but we are here @womensmarch @plannedparenthood #rallyforabortionjustice,” wrote Schumer, 40, who put up a sign reading: “Abortion is essential.”
Lawrence, 31, also carried a poster. It reads: “Women cannot be free if they cannot control their body.”
