House Star Lisa Edelstein Takes On Republican Legislation In 'Coat Hanger' Abortion Ad

Posted on Wed Feb 16, 2011 12:11 PM PDT

Talk about an unforgettable commercial.

In a new political ad produced by MoveOn.org, House star Lisa Edelstein challenges Republican legislation by advocating for women's reproductive rights.

Edelstein, decked out in a 1950's ensemble, begins by narrating:

    "Decades ago, women suffered through horrifying back alley abortions. Or, they used dangerous methods when they had no other recourse. So when the Republican Party launched an all out assault on women's health, pushing bills to limit access to vital services, why is the GOP trying to send women back ... to the back alley?"

The ad ends with Edelstein in modern clothes, while frantically reaching for a wire coat hanger in her closet. A bit eerie, but she definitely leaves an impression with this message.

The ad comes on the heels of a decision made by lawmakers in South Dakota Tuesday, who moved to expand the definition of "justifiable homicide" by including those who seek to harm a human fetus by any means.

Whether you're pro-life or pro-choice, this ad will make you take a closer look at your stance.



Lisa Edelstein is a long time advocate of human rights. The House star authored and performed the AIDS-related musical Positive Me at Ellen Stuart's La Mama, in Manhattan. It was one of the earliest AIDS-related theater productions ever done on stage.
