    Scarlett Johansson is teaming up with Planned Parenthood.

    The pregnant 29-year-old actress recently designed her own T-shirt for the Planned Parenthood Action Fund's new line of celeb-designed shirts. The line of limited edition tees was commissioned by the organization's Women Are Watching campaign, which educates and mobilizes young voters about women's health issues and women's rights.

    Johansson's shirt features her signature on one of the sleeves in addition to a message to politicians about women's rights to health care and birth control.

    "When I heard that some politicians were cheering the Supreme Court's decision to give bosses the right to interfere in our access to birth control, I thought I had woken up in another decade," Johansson said in a statement. "Like many of my friends, I was appalled by the thought of men taking away women's ability to make our own personal health care decisions. That's when I knew I couldn't sit on the sidelines and why I'm proud to support Planned Parenthood Action Fund's Women are Watching campaign to ensure that young women know the high stakes for women's health and rights this November."

    "Women are watching, and we will fight for candidates who will ensure that birth control is affordable and who will protect access to safe and legal abortion," Johansson continued. "Women will be the key to the elections this November and it's more important than ever that young women register to vote and vote for the candidate that will stand up and fight for them."

    A shirt designed by Gabrielle Union will be released and in October, another one designed by Orange Is the New Black stars Natasha Lyonne and Selenis Leyva will come out.
