Women came out in great numbers for Pink Out Day on Wednesday, Mar. 29. The women’s health organization planned this day to be as one of protest to fight against the potential threat that it could lose its’ government funding.

“We will fight like hell to protect our 2.5 million patients a year and the 1 in 5 women that will go to Planned Parenthood in her life. It’s a day for people to unite and say: We resist. We are strong. And we’re not backing down — not today, not ever,” the organization posted on the Pink Out Day page.

Women were in pink and also shared on the internet why keeping Planned Parenthood open mattered to them. Celebrities took to Twitter to show their support through the #pinkout.

“Pretty in pink. I’m joining Planned Parenthood to #PinkOut the internet. I #StandWithPP & the 2.5 million who rely on them…,”

Lily Collins, 30, said on her Twitter account.

Elizabeth Banks, 45, had tweeted,

“We’ll never stop fighting for our health, rights & communities. #IStandWithPP & 2.5MM who rely on it.”

Actually, Planned Parenthood’s “Pink Out Day” stands for
