Jennifer Lawrence praises Planned Parenthood

Jennifer Lawrence claims she wouldn't have had access to birth control without Planned Parenthood.

The 'Joy' star has praised the family planning service and slammed its critics for only seeing it as an abortion clinic.

She told Glamour magazine: "Planned Parenthood is so much more [than an abortion provider]. My mom was really religious with me when I was young. She's not so much anymore.

"And I wouldn't have been able to get birth control if it weren't for Planned P. I wouldn't have been able to get condoms and birth control and all these things I needed as a normal teenager who was growing up in a Jesus house.

"I am a successful woman who has not had a pregnancy ... But seriously. What harm comes from supplying people with birth control, condoms, Pap smears and cancer screenings?"

Meanwhile, the 25-year-old beauty previously revealed she is "picky" when it comes to choose a potential boyfriend.

She said: "I'm picky. I feel a spark very, very rarely. And it's really only about spark for me. Not really anything else. You should see some of the people I find attractive. You'd be shocked ...

"I don't, like, date a lot. I don't meet a lot of guys who I want to go on a date with. I'll find a guy attractive maybe once a year."
