VIDEO: Scarlett Johansson Explains How Planned Parenthood Helped Her in Women's March Speech
“President Trump, I did not vote for you. That said, I respect that you are our President-elect and I want to be able to support you,” the 32-year-old actress said to start of her speech on Saturday (January 21) in Washington, D.C.
“First, I ask that you support me, support my sister, support my mother, support my best friend and all of our girlfriends, support the men and women here today that are anxiously awaiting to see how your next moves may drastically affect their lives,” Scarlett said. “Support my daughter, who may actually — as a result of the appointments you have made — grow up in a country that is moving backwards, not forwards, and who potentially may not have the right to make choices for her body and her future that your daughter, Ivanka, has been privileged to have.”

“No judgment, no questions asked, Planned Parenthood provided a safe place where I could be treated with gentle guidance,” Scarlett said. “Now, I may have been 15 and surprisingly self-sufficient, but I bet there isn’t one person here who has not been helped by Planned Parenthood, directly or otherwise.”
