Meryl Streep Wants You to be Able to Get an Abortion

The Center for Reproductive Rights, for its 20th anniversary, has launched Draw the Line, a campaign for a bill of reproductive rights. It features videos from Ms. Streep and Sarah Silverman, a near-future dystopic version of the Daily Planet, and more. Here’s what they’re proposing as fundamental reproductive rights:

1. The right to make our own decisions about our reproductive health and future, free from intrusion or coercion by any government, group, or individual.

2. The right to a full range of safe, affordable, and readily accessible reproductive health care—including pregnancy care, preventive services, contraception, abortion, and fertility treatment—and accurate information about all of the above.

3. The right to be free from discrimination in access to reproductive health care or on the basis of our reproductive decisions. [Mother Jones]

Yeah! Tell em, Meryl. I suspect this is part of a fundraising campaign for the Center, but that’s okay—kick them a few bucks if you have it. They do good work.
