by at . Comments

Lisa Edelstein is taking on Republicans in a new ad that is sure to stir up a lot of controversy.

In the following spot, sponsored by Move On dot Org, the House cast member dresses like a 1950s-era woman and walks toward a door.

As she gets closer to it, her narration says: "The Republican Party launched an all-out assault on women's health, pushing bills to limit access to vital services... why is the GOP trying to send women back... to the back alley?"

She then opens the door to reveal a closet full of hangers. Watch now and sound off:

Do research before running your mouth about something you clearly know nothing about. Taxpayers were not paying for abortions. Federal funding cannot be used for abortions. So by cutting Planned Parenthood from federal funding, they're cutting off affordable women's healthcare such as pelvic exams, pap smears, cancer screening, and CONTRACEPTION. You know, the stuff that you use, so you don't end up pregnant in the first place. By cutting funding to Planned Parenthood, it's only logical to assume that the abortion rate will increase. Way to go Repubs.

Totally agree with her! Planned Parenthood provides vital medical services and less than 3% of their business is abortions. An abortion is a legal medical procedure and one should be educated on sex to prevent them. If the GOP wants to cut down on the number of abortions they should start educating people on contraceptives.

health care and exams in general are very important, but by the time you find out your pregnant your actually a month already into it, so the baby is two months old when you find out.which is why the morning after pill would be the safest bet if you didnt want to be preggers.im not a republican btw, the creep me out.haha

A baby is not a baby when it is a ball of cells, and abortion is legal. Republicans are trying to change to the definition of rape to deny abortions on technicality. They are also trying to cut funding to Plannd Parenthood, which provides necessary pelvic exams & pap smears far more than they provide abortions.

While birth control is extremely important, abortion is still murder.sorry,but it doesnt matter how small,a baby is still a baby.women need to be educated on sexual health, and stop using abortion as an easy way out of responsibility.
