"Hollywood A-listers are teaming up to send a message to Washington lawmakers on reproductive rights.

The Center for Reproductive Rights launched its Draw the Line campaign with the help of award-winning actors, including Meryl Streep, Kyra Sedgwick, Kevin Bacon, Amy Poehler, Sarah Silverman and Martha Plimpton.

The organization wants lawmakers to support women's rights to abortion, contraception and other reproductive health services. 

The Center hopes to gather hundreds of thousands of signatures. It then plans to present the bill to Congress and to the president, who according to a statement on their website, 'must guarantee and protect reproductive rights as fundamental human rights and stop the attacks by politicians who want to take those rights away'."
