NEW YORK — Taylor Schilling, Margaret Cho, Natasha Lyonne, Dan Savage and more celebrities today released a new video urging voters across the nation to cast their ballots for prochoice candidates. In the video, produced by national prochoice project #VOTEPROCHOICE, celebrities tell voters to use the nation's largest prochoice voter guide to vote prochoice all the way down the ballot.
"On Tuesday, November 6th, I will definitely vote prochoice... we are in a crushing Handmaid's Tale-esque moment," said Orange is the New Black actress Natasha Lyonne.
"Right now we need support for women's rights, women's reproductive rights," said comedian Margaret Cho.
"If there's any part of you that believes in democracy as a viable mode of organizing humans, now is the time to vote," said Orange is the New Black actress Taylor Schilling.
"Get in a f*cking time machine and vote prochoice in the last g*d damn election. It's not just important in this election, it's important in every f*cking election," said columnist Dan Savage.
“Our freedom is at stake in this election and voters know it—we must elect proud prochoice champions up and down the ballot, and #VOTEPROCHOICE’s voter guide will allow Americans identify and support prochoice leaders," said #VOTEPROCHOICE co-founder Heidi Sieck.
