The medical show actress joins with Moveon.org take on national Republican legislation in a dramatic new ad — “We Won’t Go Back.”
Republican-sponsored legislation in Washington aims to severely limit access to abortion, and now the liberal activist group MoveOn.org is firing back. In a new controversial and political ad, House actress Lisa Edelstein stands up for the “Right to Choose” with this demand: ”Don’t send women back to the back alley.” How do you feel about bills that would limit reproductive rights?
In the TV spot, Lisa, dressed in 50s-style clothing, walks down a hallway towards a door. “Decades ago, women suffered through horrifying back alley abortions. Or, they used dangerous methods when they had no other recourse,” she narrates. “So when the Republican Party launched an all-out assault on women’s health, pushing bills to limit access to vital services, we had to ask — Why is the GOP trying to send women back … to the back alley?” Lisa then opens a closed door and reaches for a wire coat hanger.
“I decided to do this ad because I believe that every woman needs to know the grave danger that women’s reproductive rights are facing in Congress right now,” Lisa tells RadarOnline.com. “I hope that women across America tell Congress that these bills are an attack on women’s health and that they are unacceptable.”
The ad with Lisa, who plays Dr. Cuddy on the hit Fox show, is set to run for a week on cable outlets.
