Scarlett Johansson is taking on a new venture: a collaboration with Planned Parenthood.

E! News reveals that the pregnant 29-year-old actress recently designed a T-shirt for the Planned Parenthood Action Fund's new line of celebrity-designed tees. The limited edition line of shirts was commissioned by the organization's Women Are Watching campaign, which seeks to educate and inspire young voters about women's rights and women's health issues.

Johansson's design features her signature on one of the shirt's sleeves in addition to a message to politician regarding 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 with 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 birth control is affordable and who will protect access to safe and legal abortion," she 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."
