| by Michael Allen

Actress Elizabeth Banks recently appeared in an Obama campaign video (below) saying that Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney's promise to "get rid" of funding for Planned Parenthood will prevent many women from receiving treatment for migraines and “a heavy flow.”

Banks said: “Planned Parenthood was my health care provider when I didn’t have insurance after I graduated from college. Yes, I got birth control, but it was for my massive migraine headaches and my heavy flow. Yeah, I’m on the record saying I have a heavy flow The services that they provide, what is it?"

"Ninety-five percent of them don’t involve anything controversial. So for that little 5 percent that Mitt Romney decides he doesn’t agree with, he’s going to take away cancer screenings? What is he doing? He’s going to take away people’s access to health care close by. We’re talking about working-class ladies who need health care.”

“President Obama has not compromised on women’s rights and that’s why President Obama needs to stay in office."
