Variety announced today that "Mom star Allison Janney and series co-creator/exec producer Chuck Lorre on Thursday launched the effort to raise awareness of the threat to Planned Parenthood funding as the Republican-backed American Health Care Act makes its way through Congress".

The Mom team is encouraging fans and concerned citizens to make donations via the ppaction.org/MOMsupport link and rallying support by using the #StandwithPP hashtag throughout social media.

Lorre said when he was discussing Mom's Emmy campaign with the show's studio, Warner Bros.

Every year, TV channels put together budgets for their shows in order to get and win award show nominations.

'Our show is all about women and we don't shy away from dealing with all issues that affect women and families, ' Janney said.

The comedy hopes its donation will encourage fans and non-fans alike to contribute to the national non-profit given the situation in Washington D.C. The American Health Care Act, which will repeal Obamacare and is now being considered by the U.S. Senate, would block Planned Parenthood from being reimbursed for providing services like birth control and cancer screenings to Medicaid recipients and other low-income patients. "It's in danger of.the House of Representatives voted to defund it".

For example, in an article about the Mom donation, Hollywood Reporter writer Lesley Goldberg wrote: "The news comes as the U.S. Senate is mulling legislation that would block low-income patients from going to Planned Parenthood for preventative care". Although a comedy, it nonetheless deals with a variety of heavy subjects including addiction and suicide. "Generous support from our community fuels this work, and we are honored that the team behind "Mom" is launching this campaign at this critical time".

Janney and her family have supported Planned Parenthood and its Los Angeles affiliate for generations.

Janney and Lorre both have a record of supporting the organization that serves 2.5 million people a year. Faris, for her part, supports the Global Alliance to Prevent Premature and Stillbirths.
