The Center for Reproductive Rights, a global legal advocacy organization, launched a new kind of campaign Tuesday that asks American voters to sign a “Bill of Reproductive Rights” in support of legal access to abortion and contraception. The campaign, called “Draw The Line,” has attracted a long list of high-profile celebrity participants, including Meryl Streep, Kevin Bacon, Amy Poehler, Lisa Kudrow, Sarah Silverman, Billy Crudup, and Caroline Kennedy.
