After Britney Spears alleged in a court hearing that her conservatorship says she's unable to remove her implanted IUD and have more children, Planned Parenthood released a statement of support.

Planned Parenthood Reacts to Britney Spears’ IUD Allegation: ‘Your Reproductive Health Is Your Own’

Among dozens of shocking allegations made by Britney Spears during a Los Angeles Superior Court hearing on Wednesday (June 23), one of the most disturbing was the fact that the pop star said she wants her implanted IUD birth control device removed so she can have more kids and has been told she could not.

“I want to be able to get married and have a baby,” Spears told Judge Brenda Penny during a 20-minute-plus public statement in opposition to the conservatorship she’s been under for the past 13 years. “I was told right now in the conservatorship, I’m not able to get married or have a baby. I have an IUD inside of myself right now so I don’t get pregnant. I wanted to take the IUD out so I could start trying to have another baby. But this so-called team won’t let me go to the doctor to take it out because they don’t want me to have any more children.”

Spears is the mother of two boys with ex-husband Kevin Federline: 15-year-old Sean Preston and 14-year-old Jayden James. In addition to Federline, Spears was briefly married to a childhood friend named Jason Alexander. She is currently dating actor Sam Asghari.

Late Wednesday, Planned Parenthood Federation of America president and CEO Alexis McGill Johnson released a statement in support of Spears and her freedom to expand her family, saying the organization stands in “solidarity” with the star.

“It is incredibly distressing to hear the trauma that Britney Spears has been through — including the appalling news that she has not been able to remove her own IUD,” the statement reads. “We stand in solidarity with Britney and all women who face reproductive coercion. Your reproductive health is your own — and no one should make decisions about it for you. Every person should have the ability to make their own decisions about their bodies and exercise bodily autonomy.”

The Women’s March also tweeted a statement of support for Spears on Wednesday, writing, “Everyone deserves to be able to make their own choices: for their bodies, for their health, for their lives. We support you, Britney, and all women escaping abusive and controlling situations.”

Justin Timberlake Reacts to Britney Spears Court Hearing: ‘What’s Happening to Her Is Just Not Right’

Justin Timberlake Reacts to Britney Spears Court Hearing: ‘What’s Happening to Her Is Just Not Right’

Following Britney Spears’ explosive public statement against her longtime conservatorship in a Los Angeles Superior Court hearing on Wednesday (June 23), Justin Timberlake took to Twitter to send “absolute support” to his ex-girlfriend.

“After what we saw today, we should all be supporting Britney at this time,” Timberlake tweeted Wednesday. “Regardless of our past, good and bad, and no matter how long ago it was… what’s happening to her is just not right.”

In his three-tweet thread, Timberlake also referenced Spears’ claim that the conservatorship hasn’t allowed her to remove her implanted IUD birth control device in order to have more children.

“No woman should ever be restricted from making decisions about her own body,” he wrote. “No one should EVER be held against their will… or ever have to ask permission to access everything they’ve worked so hard for.”

In his final message, Timberlake said that he and wife Jessica Biel send love and offer their “absolute support” to Spears. “We hope the courts and her family make this right and let her live however she wants to live.”

Timberlake and Spears dated from 1998 to 2002 after initially meeting as kids on The All-New Mickey Mouse Club. The New York Times documentary Framing Britney Spears that came out on FX and Hulu in February focused on the star’s controversial conservatorship as well as the imbalanced media treatment of Timberlake and Spears in the wake of their high-profile breakup.
