This Wednesday, you may have seen the hashtag #PinkOut in your Twitter feed. The hashtag is being used by Planned Parenthood supporters and opponents alike to speak out about their opinions on the organization and abortion.

From politicians to your next door neighbor, people are supporting Planned Parenthood and the 2.5 million people who rely on the organization with #PinkOut and #IStandWithPP.

Opponents have fired back, using the hashtag to make their opinions heard amongst the supporters.

Some say it's a trick as "real medical services are plummeting."

Others mock the hashtag.

Whether a person is in favor of or against the organization and its services, #PinkOut day has become another platform for people to speak out about their opinions on what Planned Parenthood does for women in America.
