Scarlett Johansson, Eva Longoria and Kerry Washington: Vote Obama! (VIDEO)
In a new political ad by MoveOn.org Political Action, the three actresses take aim Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, slamming his stance on women’s rights.
“I want to talk to you about women,” Johansson says, addressing the camera. “And about Mitt Romney,” adds Washington. “Mitt Romney is for ending funding to Planned Parenthood,” says Longoria. “Including cancer screenings,” warns Johansson.
What else do the A-list ladies critique about the former Governor of Massachusetts?
The ad — directed by Oscar-nominated helmer Rob Reiner, behind such films as the Princess Bride and Misery— slams Romney’s position the United States Supreme Court’s landmark decision on the issue of abortion, which struck down many state laws restricting the medical service.
“He said he’d overturn Roe V. Wade,” explains Washington. “We have Republicans trying to redefine rape,” says Johansson, “[and] trying to force women to undergo invasive ultrasounds,” adds Longoria.
This isn’t the first time Johansson, Washington and Longoria — a co-chair of Obama’s re-election campaign — have rallied behind the POTUS. All three took the podium at this year’s Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C., throwing their Hollywood weight behind the Democratic candidate. “The other side wants to take our voices away and render us invisible,” Washington told the DNC crowd at the time. “But we are not invisible.”
