Listen up, America — because Scarlett Johnasson, Eva Longoria and Kerry Washington have a message for you.

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.

"If you think this election won't effect you and your life," warns Johansson, "think again."  That's why, according to the three actresses, you have to make your voice heard. "Vote," says Washington and Longoria. But not just for anyone: "Vote for Barack Obama," Johansson urges.

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."

    This is the definition of propaganda. I'm in Canada and I feel bad that you guys get subjected to this kind of garbage. I hope the people of America can see through all of these desperate attempts at grabbing the voter's attention.

    This is the most manipulative, uninformed video I have ever seen. First, R Vs. W will never be overturned. None of these things will ever actually happen.

    Wow, talk about a bullshit issue. War on women? Really? Birth control has always been available to anyone who wants it -- so what's the issue now? Abortions are legal. The only issue is why is there such a widespread use of abortion as a birth control device? Mammograms? Please, go to your own doctor and get one. If you can't afford it, apply for Medical or go to the Susan G Komen Foundation and get support from them. Planned Parenthood does not do mammograms. They do abortions, for which they are paid. They don't need the government's money. Do these ladies (and I use the term loosely) even understand the issues or are they just ignorant parrots?
