Actress and pro-abortion activist Alyssa Milano has called for women to engage in a “sex strike” after the US State of Georgia and others moved to pass bills protecting the life of unborn children.
Milano has urged women to refuse sex with men until all laws protecting unborn children from being killed repealed.
The actress took to Twitter to call for the strike over the weekend stating
“Our reproductive rights are being erased,” she tweeted. “Until women have legal control over our own bodies we just cannot risk pregnancy. JOIN ME by not having sex until we get bodily autonomy back. I’m calling for a #SexStrike. Pass it on.”
This bizarre move comes after Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp signed a bill into law that last week that made abortions after a heartbeat had been detected illegal in most circumstances. Unborn babies develop a heartbeat around six weeks.
Other States including Kentucky, Mississippi, and Ohio have approved similar legislation in the last several months.
Meanwhile, Pro-life organisations have applauded Milano’s comments saying abstinence is the best way to avoid unwanted pregnancies and that only women already inclined to have abortions were likely to head Milano’s calls.
In another outburst on Twitter Milano said
“We can LOVE sex and fight for our bodily autonomy. There are lots of alternatives to cis men.
Protect your vaginas, ladies. Men in positions of power are trying to legislate them. #SexStrike”
This led to criticism and accusations of transphobia against Milano from the LGBTIQCAPGNGFNBA community who attacked the actress for not recognising that some women have penises i.e. biological men who identify as women.
