Actress Scarlett Johansson has some thoughts to share with politicians in general, and "politicians" that were "cheering the Supreme Court decision to give bosses the right to interfere in our access to birth control" in particular. She's chosen to do so through the art of t-shirt script.

Hey politicians, the 1950s called..."

"...they want their sexism back."

Planned Parenthood's is now offering the tees in exchange for a minimum donation of $35, which would go to the Planned Parenthood Action Fund that "exists to ensure that elected officials support policies and programs that help women and their families make responsible choices about family planning and reproductive health," according to the site.


ScarJo's statement reads in full:

When I heard that some politicians were cheering the Supreme Court's decision to give bosses the right to interfere in our access to birth control, I thought I had woken up in another decade. Like many of my friends, I was appalled by the thought of men taking away women's ability to make our own personal health care decisions. That's when I knew I couldn't sit on the sidelines and why I'm proud to support Planned Parenthood Action Fund's Women are Watching campaign to ensure that young women know the high stakes for women's health and rights this November.

Women are watching, and we will fight for candidates who will ensure that birth control is affordable and who will protect access to safe and legal abortion. Women will be the key to the elections this November and it's more important than ever that young women register to vote and vote for the candidate that will stand up and fight for them.
