Orange Is The New Black star Selenis Leyva will be hosting abortion giant Planned Parenthood Advocates Arizona’s ‘I Stand‘ luncheon in April.
The luncheon takes place Friday, April 10, 2015 from 12:00 to 1:30 p.m. at the Tucson Convention Center in Tucson, Arizona.
Orange is the New Black is a Netflix original series and will enter their third season in 2015.
Last year Bustle reported that OITNB stars Natasha Lyonne and Selenis Leyva, known as Nicky Nichols and Gloria Mendoza on the show, designed a shirt as part of Planned Parenthood’s celebrity tee series.The shirts were created to promote Planned Parenthood Action Fund’s 2014 Women Are Watching movement.
Planned Parenthood of Arizona advertises that they offer abortion services. A Planned Parenthood of Arizona affiliate in Temp has been under fire recently for failing to report the sexual assault of a teen that came to their facility.
According to reports, the Tempe Planned Parenthood counselor told the alleged victim and her mother at an abortion consultation that it “wasn’t worth the hassle” to report that the minor had been raped. After that, the rapist, Tyler Kost, allegedly committed additional offenses against other young females.
