Elizabeth Banks is doing her part to help President Obama's 2012 reelection bid, extolling the virtues of Planned Parenthood in a new campaign ad.
The 38-year-old Hunger Games actress released a new video praising Obama and Planned Parenthood, while sharing some very personal anecdotes.
Watch the campaign spot below and see what you think:
"Planned Parenthood was my healthcare provider when I didn't have insurance after graduating from college," she says, before delving into detail.
"Yes, I got birth control but it was for massive migraine headaches and my heavy flow," Banks admits. "Yeah, I'm on record saying I had a heavy flow."
"And, unfortunately, these are the things I don't want to discuss with employers."
The actress points out that Obama's opponent, Republican Mitt Romney, has said he would cut off federal funding to Planned Parenthood.
She argues that "95%" of Planned Parenthood's services are not controversial, yet it's become a lightning rod for political controversy.
"For that little 5% that Mitt Romney decides he doesn't agree with, he's going to take away cancer screenings. What is he doing?" she asks.
"He's going to take away people's access to health care close by ... We're talking about working-class ladies who need health care."
"President Obama has not compromised on women's rights," she says, "And that's why President Obama needs to stay in office."
