Several A-list celebrities are standing up for Planned Parenthood by asking Americans to contact their senators and urge them to protect the women’s healthcare organization. Watch the video below.

The star-studded plea is in reaction to the Senate’s recently released version of Trumpcare, which includes a provision to defund Planned Parenthood. Among the famous faces joining forces in support of women’s access to affordable, quality healthcare include Jennifer Lawrence, Jon Hamm, Brie Larson, Amy Poehler, Judd Apatow, Elisabeth Moss, Alison Brie, Andrew Rannells, Aubrey Plaza, Kate Walsh, Lena Dunham, Suki Waterhouse, and many more.

“This is nothing more than a blatantly political attempt to do whatever it takes to attack women’s health and rights, and take healthcare away from the people who need it most,” the stars collectively say in the video. “The right to decide our own bodily future is the most basic of all human rights.” The celebrities further note, “If Congress cuts funding to Planned Parenthood, millions of people will be left without access to birth control, life-saving cancer screenings, and other basic care.”

The video was produced by the online feminist newsletter, Lenny Letter, and the millennial digital news company, NowThis. A statement on Planned Parenthood’s official website says, “We are so grateful to have the support of so many artists, many of whom have themselves relied on Planned Parenthood for health care, and who understand the importance of speaking out.” Watch the video below.
