Scarlett Johansson Slams Planned Parenthood Proposed Cuts

Scarlett Johansson has slammed the proposed Planned Parenthood cuts, explaining that making essential services provided for women less available could put lives at risk.

T he actress believes the cuts are a move backward and she warns that women need access to those essential health services:

“There are countries at war, there’s terrorism, global warming, and we’re like, ‘We should definitely cut the budget for Planned Parenthood. Let’s take away the availability of women’s health initiatives!’… It’s nuts.”

She explains that Planned Parenthood work to keep women healthy and that she always used their services, as well as many of her friends. She believes the proposed cuts will see women more at risk and it’s a step in the wrong direction:

“We’re talking about preventing cervical and breast cancers. Growing up, I used [PP’s] services. All my girlfriends did—not just for birth control but for Pap smears and breast exams. You read about the rise of back-alley abortions, women having to mutilate themselves and teenagers having to seek help in unsafe conditions, and for what?! We’re moving backward when we’re supposed to be moving forward.”

Commenting on the topic of wage inequality, Scarlett explained that she feels she is paid fairly but that it should be a part of a larger discussion because not everyone is as privileged as she is:

“I’m proud to be an actress who’s making as much as many of my male peers at this stage… I think every woman has [been underpaid], but unless I’m addressing it as a larger problem, for me to talk about my own personal experience with it feels a little obnoxious. It’s part of a larger conversation about feminism in general.”
