Scarlett Johansson has made this video strongly defending Planned Parenthood. Scarlett signed an open letter to Congress, and in the video urges others to do the same.
The video was made before a deal was made. Funding for Planned Parenthood was not cut this time. It’s not the end of the matter though, as Republicans are determined not to give up the fight.
House speaker John A. Boehner, a Republican, “faced off” with President Obama in the Oval Office. Boehner demanded a provision to restrict financing to Planned Parenthood and other groups providing abortions.
Obama refused to move an inch on the issue, delivering a flat out, “Nope. Zero”, “John, this is it”. Obama has already agreed to tens of billions of dollars in cuts in many areas but held tough on defending cuts in this area. Will it last?
