Scarlett Johansson: Right to Abortion Is a Human Rights Issue

Longtime defender of family planning, actress Scarlett Johansson spoke out at the 2016 Power of Women Los Angeles luncheon for abortion. "A women’s right to choose what to do with her body shouldn't just be a women's rights issue — it's the year 2016 and this is a human rights issue," Johansson said. A woman's right to choose is a deeply personal one and should not be a part of anyone's political agenda. It has nothing to do with politics in the slightest. It is about honoring and respecting women and upholding the law.
