Scarlett Johansson: Don’t Let Politicians Take Away a Woman’s Right to Choose

The “Avengers” star was honored for her expansive work with Planned Parenthood. Her award was presented by Robert Downey Jr.

During her acceptance speech, Johansson said, “A women’s right to choose what to do with her body shouldn’t just be a women’s rights issue — it’s the year 2016 and this is a human rights issue….It is time we all stand united so this conversation is taken off the ballot, so to speak, and out of the mouths of politicians.”
