Katy Perry loves Hillary Clinton.

Like really, honestly, sincerely loves her.

She was probably Hillary's biggest supporter during her presidential campaign: she spoke and performed at the Democratic National Convention, she constantly urged her fans to support her.

And who could forget Katy's incredible Halloween costume?

Katy loves Hillary so much that she even got naked to inspire people to vote.

Here, remember the good times:

Tragically, Katy's girl lost the election, and now our great country has been catapulted into the End Times.

She took the news hard, just like many of us, but she wasn't about to take things lying down.

The day after the election, she made a series of inspirational posts on Twitter, messages like "WE WILL NEVER BE SILENCED" and "THE REVOLUTION IS COMING."

She requested her fans "peacefully protest" the election results, and to "fight for what is RIGHT."

And then, last night, she donated $10,000 to Planned Parenthood, a little protest of her own.

And she also wrote this touching little letter to go along with it:

It's time to turn words into action!

There are so many steps to take, but my first vow is to support organizations that may have their funding support taken from them in the future by the government.

I am making a public donation to Planned Parenthood for the teenage me who made several visits to first a clinic in Santa Barbara and then Los Angeles, CA to educate myself on my sexual health, a subject I had little to no information on because of my sheltered upbringing.

I had no idea how things worked down there, and had no idea how to make a plan for them.

Planned Parenthood educated me on my body and my reproductive health, so that I could focus on my dreams and using my voice until I knew the timing was right for me to make a plan to have a family.

Since then, I have been able to focus wholeheartedly on bringing messages of strength and becoming a voice for others.

Without this education, I may have had a different life path.

This is just my experience, but I know Planned Parenthood's broader range of services can sometimes be the only medical support low-income families ever see. I know what it's like to need help.

I came from a lower- to middle-class family and never grew up with the option of health insurance. I remember having 13 cavities as a teenager, and the best option my parents could come up with was to try to take me to Mexico because we couldn't afford anything in California.

I am grateful for and stand in support of Planned Parenthood for giving Katheryn Hudson the knowledge to plan, and for continuing to be a haven for women to learn all options for their future.

Now, more than ever, we all need to protect and create safe places for each other.

I hope I can help inspire you to make a gift as well, and become a member and an ally.

Who knew that, in addition to being absolutely gorgeous and creating the catchiest pop songs of them all, Katy Perry was also just a generally wonderful human being?
