Washington, October 15 : Oscar-winning American actress Gwyneth Paltrow has declared her support for Barack Obama, claiming that the Democratic presidential candidate shares her passions for women's rights issues.
"It is crucial that we elect a president who will make women's health a priority. For his entire career, Barack Obama has stood up for women in this way," Contactmusic quoted the mother-of-two as telling Glamour magazine.
Paltrow also revealed why she did not want Republican presidential hopeful John McCain to become American President.
"MCCain has voted against requiring insurance to cover birth control, and he's opposed funding for education about emergency contraception (EC). MCCain has voted against what is best for women's health 125 times. This year I'll be voting for a champion of women's health care, and a champion for my daughter's future," she said.
