Aquaman actress Amber Heard targeted President Donald Trump telling him, “My body. My choice, not yours, Trump” as she showed support for Planned Parenthood.
Heard would make the comments on Twitter where she shared a photo of herself at Planned Parenthood of New York City. Not only would she target President Trump, but she would also write, “Health care is under attack like never before. But the one sure thing? Planned Parenthood is here for good. I stand w/ Planned Parenthood, & Planned Parenthood stands w/ u.”

Heard’s comments come after Planned Parenthood voluntarily removed itself from Title X family planning reimbursements and grants program. Doreen Denny at Fox News notes Planned Parenthood removed itself from Title X after new rules required clinics “to have full financial and physical separation from abortion services and prohibit telling patients where they can obtain abortions.” She does add, “the new rules permit counseling that can include – but no longer require – discussion of abortion.”
This isn’t the first time Heard has made her opinion on Planned Parenthood known. Back in May, the actress attended the Planned Parenthood New York Spring Into Action Gala where she claimed “Planned Parenthood is doing work on behalf of people who have no voice and no position of power.” She went on to tell W magazine, “I can’t be more proud to represent the future and our place in this debate, which is saying, ‘We’re not going to continue to allow people who have never had their feet in the stirrups to decide what we do with our bodies.’”
Heard has also waded into other political areas. Last year, she was called a racist for tweeting, “Just heard there’s an ICE checkpoint in Hollywood, a few blocks from where I live. Everyone better give their housekeepers, nannies and landscapers a ride home tonight…” She has since deleted that tweet.

Heard has also found herself in the middle of domestic abuse allegations with her ex-husband Johnny Depp. Both she and Depp have both claimed they abused each other. In court documents, Depp accused Heard of cutting off his finger. (Related: Johnny Depp’s $50 Million Lawsuit Against Aquaman’s Amber Heard Claims She Chopped Off His Finger)
Heard claimed that Depp violently abused her while he was using drugs and alcohol. She stated, “Whenever he was using, I worried for both os uf. He would become a totally different person, often delusional and violent.” (Related: Amber Heard Details Violent Abuse at the Hands of Johnny Depp – Asks Judge to Dismiss $50 Million Defamation Lawsuit)
