Democrats are counting on a strong get-out-the-vote operation to counter Republican momentum in Tuesday's midterm elections.

Independent analysts have said the GOP is likely to take control of the Senate, though the White House and Democratic National Committee predict it will stay in Democratic hands.

Planned Parenthood's political arms played a major role in shaping the "war on women" narrative that helped Democrats in 2012.

And while debates over birth control and abortion access remain in the news, they are part of a wider mix of issues influencing the political environment this cycle.

Planned Parenthood's electoral affiliates are also leveraging their celebrity supporters in the final weeks of the campaign to boost turnout among unmarried women and those who support abortion rights.

The latest star to promote the groups' agenda is actress Gabrielle Union, who posted a video Monday urging women voters to go to the polls on Tuesday.
