Scarlett Johansson, Eva Longoria Urge Women to Vote for Obama
(NEW YORK) — Scarlett Johansson, Eva Longoria and Kerry Washington want to talk to you about women and Mitt Romney.
In a new political ad by MoveOn.org Political Action, the three actresses speak about Romney’s stance on women’s health issues, including Planned Parenthood funding and abortion. They also encourage women to vote for Obama.
“If you think that this election won’t affect you and your life, think again,” Johansson says in the video.
Longoria and Johansson have been active in Obama’s campaign. Desperate Housewives star Longoria is co-chairwoman of the president’s re-election campaign and both women made speeches at the Democratic National Convention last month.
Shortly after the MoveOn.org ad was uploaded to YouTube Monday, Romney’s team released an ad about women’s health issues as well.
“You know, those ads say Mitt Romney would ban all abortions and contraception seemed a bit extreme, so I looked into it,” a woman identified as Sarah Minto says in the video. “It turns out Romney doesn’t oppose contraception at all. In fact, he thinks abortion should be an option in cases of rape, incest or to save a mother’s life.”
