Swimsuit model Chrissy Teigen took to social media to express her support for non-profit organisation Planned Parenthood following the deadly shooting at a clinic, providing reproductive health services, in Colorado Springs.

On Friday, Teigen announced via Twitter that she would always donate to the organisation alongside her husband John Legend. Her tweet immediately garnered 4,237 retweets and 15,169 likes.

“Every time s--- like this happens, john and I immediately make another donation to planned parenthood,” she wrote.

Her husband Legend showed his support to wife by retweeting the post.

Minutes later, the model shared on Twitter a direct link to the donation site of the organisation and encouraged others to do the same. “Donate to planned parenthood today,” she tweeted.

Other celebrities and political figures have also sent their prayers for the victims in the Colorado Springs shooting, as well as their support for Planned Parenthood on social media with the hashtag “#StandWithPP.”

“Scandal” actress Kerry Washington wrote on her Twitter feed, “Prayers to #ColoradoSprings & #PlannedParenthood.” Meanwhile, Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton posted on Twitter, “Today and every day, we #StandWithPP.” Her post was retweeted by Planned Parenthood advocate and actress Elizabeth Banks.

The Colorado shooting on Friday left nine people wounded and a police officer and two others dead, according to New York Daily News. Police have announced that the suspected gunman, identified as Robert Lewis Dear, 57, is now under their custody. Based on Police criminal records, the suspect was previously investigated for animal cruelty, domestic abuse and Peeping Tom accusations. Motive for the attack remains undetermined.

Following the attacks, Vicki Cowart, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains, immediately released a statement on their website. “The heart of Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains (PPRM) is broken as we try to make sense of the horrific tragedy that struck our beloved health center in Colorado Springs," she said.

“Our thoughts are with all those who were impacted and particularly the two families of the two civilians and one heroic law-enforcement officer whose lives were lost,” PPRM’s president added.

In another statement, the organisation revealed that there are already women’s health rivals “pushing to defund” Planned Parenthood health centers nationwide. This will leave millions of patient with insufficient “essential care” such as birth control, access to safe and legal abortion and cancer screenings, she added.
