With a government shutdown looming and Planned Parenthood at the crux of the debate, I came across two big name celebrity videos featuring Scarlett Johansson and Gwyneth Paltrow offering support for the organization.
“A cancer that goes undetected, a sexually transmitted disease left untreated, a woman unable to get the birth control she needs to plan her family and take control of her own destiny. This is the disastrous vision of some leaders of the House of Representatives.”
Check out Scarlett Johansson’s Video:
Gwyneth Paltrow’s video is much shorter (and looks like it might have been shot in her bathroom), but still another big name actress lending her support.
Check out Gwyneth Paltrow’s Video:
I’ll admit that Paltrow’s video isn’t stellar, but it’s nice to see support coming from such big name celebrities.
You too can show support for Planned Parenthood today! It’s only a click away!
