Actress Natalie Portman was seen spending some time with her 1-year-old boy Aleph as the pair made their way into a Los Feliz, Calif. community gymnasium on Thursday (September 20).
Natalie recently made an appearance alongside Jessica Alba at the Women for Obama event in Las Vegas, Nevada in an effort to promote President Obama, discuss her view on abortion and encourage fellow women to vote for Obama’s re-election.
“Talk to everyone you know, tell your story, that’s how we can become positive,” she says. “Luckily we have a president who has so many positives that we can create this win by saying the great things he has done, not talking trash.”
Natalie was particularly adamant about defending the “right to choose,” explaining her perspective as a mother.
“As a new mother – as all of you as mothers, its hard to hear, you know, the word ‘right to life.’ I think as our opponent because we all cherish life, we all love the miracle, the absolute wonder of what our bodies can do and what we are able to create, and we are lucky enough to be able to create as women,” she shares.
“But we also know that losing our right to choose means that we put our sisters in jeopardy. It doesn’t end abortion, it just ends freedom to abortion and safe abortion.”
Natalie went on to highlight some of the President’s accomplishments, reminding the women that he had done enough to deserve re-election.
“I kept seeing his accomplishments and I wondered, ‘What more does he have to do to deserve four more years?” she says.
