Lena Dunham, the writer and star of HBO’s “Girls,” has a killer costume planned for Halloween.
The Hillary Clinton supporter and outspoken feminist plans to dress up as a Planned Parenthood abortionist — a gig she describes as “sexy” and “cool.”

“Still, I want to be accepted and to WIN BIG! And this year, I think I may have finally nailed it. I’m going as something newsy, sexy, and cool: a Planned Parenthood doctor!” Dunham wrote in “Lenny Letter,” her daily email newsletter.
Like many celebrities, Dunham has rallied to support Planned Parenthood after the organization was exposed in an undercover sting operation showing its doctors discussing the sale of babies’ body parts. The undercover videos, which were released by the pro-life group the Center for Medical Progress, have led to a congressional investigation.
Earlier this month Dunham auctioned off a sweater adorned with the image of a woman’s ovaries to benefit the Los Angeles chapter of Planned Parenthood. (RELATED: Lena Dunham Gives Planned Parenthood The Sweater Off Her Back)
And in an interview with Vanity Fair last year, Dunham spoke in glowing terms about the doctors who provide more than 300,000 abortions in the U.S. each year.
“Who are your heroes in real life?” she was asked.
“The men and women who work at Planned Parenthood centers across America,” she said.
Dunham has also endorsed Hillary Clinton and conducted a fawning interview with the Democratic front-runner earlier this month.
