Scarlett Johansson, Eva Longoria & Kerry Washington Cast Romney As Dangerous For Women In New Ad

Three top actresses star in a new TV ad from the progressive group MoveOn aimed at drawing a bright line between President Obama and Mitt Romney on women’s health issues.

Scarlett Johansson, Eva Longoria and Kerry Washington — all Obama backers — speak directly to the camera in the ad, highlighting GOP attempts to require ultrasounds in some states and referencing the Republican-led 2011 House effort to insert “forcible rape” in place of “rape” in legislation granting federal funds for abortion coverage. 

“If you think that this election won’t affect you and your life, think again,” Johansson says in the ad.

MoveOn tells TPM the ad will run on TV in the swing states of Colorado and Virginia.
