“Draw the Line” on Reproductive Rights

Employing a humorous approach to deliver an earnest message, the Center for Reproductive Rights has launched a “Draw the Line” campaign to urge signatures on a Bill of Reproductive Rights.

CRR has released an engaging video featuring well-known celebrities–including Kyra Sedgwick, Kevin Bacon, Amy Poehler, Lisa Kudrow, Sarah Silverman and Meryl Streep–reacting with disbelief to horrendous headlines attacking women’s reproductive rights.

CRR plans to “deliver a thundering statement–backed by hundreds of thousands of signatures from concerned citizens like you” to the congress and the president emphasizing the need to protect reproductive rights as basic human rights.

The campaign’s long string of celebrity support can only help the cause. After all, as one Youtube commenter noted, “No one can say ‘no’ to Meryl Streep. Problem solved.”
