She’s sexy, hilarious and she cares about access to healthcare for lower income women. She’s my hero of the day.
The lovely Elizabeth Banks just recorded this video in support of Planned Parenthood and President Obama. The Hunger Games actress relates a personal story about how, after college, she used Planned Parenthood as her medical provider. She goes on to denounce Mitt Romney for threatening to shut down the organization if he wins the presidential race, taking pains to point out the vital role they play in the everyday health care needs of ordinary, working class women — from cancer screenings prenatal care.
She finishes by endorsing Obama’s reelection, because of his unwavering support for women’s rights and Planned Parenthood.
And just because I know you like her for how funny she is…I’ll end this with a fun clip from our pals over at MTV News — a lively interview with Banks at the premiere of The Hunger Games.
