Actress Elizabeth Banks talked about her experience with Planned Parenthood and why she supports it in a new video produced by the Obama campaign.
In the video, Banks blasts Mitt Romney over his stance on Planned Parenthood.
“These services that they provide — what is it? Ninety-five percent of them don’t involve anything controversial, so for that little 5 percent that Mitt Romney decides he doesn’t agree with, he’s going to take away cancer screenings? What is he doing? He’s going to take people’s access to health care close by? We’re talking about working-class ladies who need health care,” Banks said.
The actress then goes on to praise President Obama and his support for Planned Parenthood.
“President Obama has not compromised on women’s rights and that’s why President Obama needs to stay in office,” Banks said.
Banks isn’t the only actress to publicly support Planned Parenthood. Gwyneth Paltrow and Scarlett Johansson have also made videos expressing their support.
