Elizabeth Banks on Planned Parenthood, Women’s Health, and Women’s Rights


[Music] [Elizabeth Banks] Planned Parenthood is something
I care very deeply about. Planned Parenthood was my healthcare provider when I didn’t
have insurance after graduating college. Yes, I got birth control. But it was for my massive
migraine headaches and my heavy flow. Yea, I’m on record saying I had a heavy flow. And
unfortunately, these are the types of things that I don’t want to discuss with employers.
I don’t want to talk about that with my employer. That’s between me and my doctor. And at the
time, my doctor happened to be at Planned Parenthood. So I’m really grateful that they
exist and that they provide essential services for women all over this country. [Banks] The services that they provide, what
is it, 95 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 away people’s access to health care closeby? We’re
talking about working class ladies who need healthcare. That’s it, that’s Planned Parenthood.
And if, and I don’t know how a lot of communities could get by without them [Banks] President Obama has not compromised
on women’s rights and that’s why President Obama needs to stay in office. [Music]
