The Center for Reproductive Rights has launched a celebrity campaign called 'Draw The Line,' which asks Americans to sign a "Bill of Reproductive Rights" in support of access to abortion and contraception.

The 'Draw The Line' campaign features celebrities: Meryl Streep, Kevin Bacon, Amy Poehler, Lisa Kudrow, Sarah Silverman, Billy Crudup, and Caroline Kennedy.
