Scarlett Johansson and Gwyneth Paltrow Show Support for Planned Parenthood [Videos]

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!

@Patricia S: "Have you personally checked Planned Parenthood's books to see just where the money is coming from for the abortions that they perform?"

Patricia, the money for the abortion services comes from people like me, who donate to Planned Parenthood every year.

& Patricia S - once again, your hard earned tax dollars are not supporting Abortions through Planned Parenthood. You would probably support giving government money to some religious organization but not to where it really counts. No matter how many times people acquaint you with REAL FACTS - you choose to ignore them & go blithely along believing the lies.

Mary M - are you serious???? Paltrow & Johansson are women, aren't they? Paltrow has children. While it is true that they might not need the services of Planned Parenthood, they recognize the need for those services in the lives of poor & middle class women.

Even though both are accomplished actresses and beautiful - they recognize the plight of fellow women. Just because they are Hollywood actresses & blonde doesn't meant that they checked their brains in at the door. They have just as much right as anyone else to speak about serious or non serious subjects.

yes its good for them that they put their name to some good use but seriously this cause is beyond their name it shouldnt matter what they say what should matter is whats happening to a womans rights period. everyones actions to help womens rights are just as important as gwens and scarlets.

@ Mary Meijer. What ever are you talking about? Are you envious of these pretty women or are the sour grapes just typical of your character? PP needs all the help it can get and not much gets the attention of nasty old white men, than a pretty face. It doesn't hurt that they are intelligent as well
