WASHINGTON, DC — Ahead of the Supreme Court hearing final arguments in the case of Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores next week, UltraViolet, a national women’s advocacy organization, is releasing a new ad that highlights the dangers of having your boss in the bedroom. The new video, part of a five-figure ad buy targeting young women in swing states, features Daily Show co-creator Lizz Winstead as a puppet navigating the complexities of an intrusive conservative boss and Judge trying to take away her birth control and invade her bedroom.

“Birth control is wildly popular and a critical part of women’s health care for tens of millions of Americans. Across the country, women are sick of conservative efforts to cut off our access,” said Shaunna Thomas, co-founder of UltraViolet. “We hope the Supreme Court rejects this right wing attempt to allow bosses into our bedrooms, but if they don’t, women will remember who caused this mess.”
“The fact that conservatives and the Supreme Court could take away women’s rights to birth control is disturbing and every woman in America should know what’s happening at the court next week,” said Lizz Winstead, co-creator of the Daily Show. “That’s why I teamed up with UltraViolet to make this video. The video is cute, what the Supreme Court may do is anything but.”
Next week, the Supreme Court is set to hear final arguments in Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores on whether corporations can maintain religious beliefs and impose those beliefs upon their employees by limiting access to medical procedures they deem immoral.
