Alyssa Milano Calls for 'Sex Strike' to Protest Abortion Bill

The entertainment industry in particular is wrestling over the Georgia law because many films and TV shows are made in the state due to its widely popular tax incentives. JOIN ME by not having sex until we get our bodily autonomy back.

Milano posted a call to arms on Friday on Twitter, urging people to abstain in protest.

Milano told The Associated Press on Saturday that "the stakes are never higher than right now" because the laws are "outrageous" and could be decided by the U.S. Supreme Court, which conservatives hope will overturn Roe v. Wade. Until women have legal control over our own bodies we just can not risk pregnancy ...

The new law outlaws abortions in the state at six weeks into the pregnancy. I'm calling for a @SexStrike.

Georgia state representative confronts Milano over protest; reaction and analysis on 'The Five'.

A number of actors had signed an open letter in March pledging not to work there should the law pass.

Alyssa's controversial request comes after Governor Brian Kemp of Georgia signed what's become known as the "fetal heartbeat" abortion bill into law on May 7.

MS and OH have recently passed "heartbeat" laws of their own, which haven't come into effect yet.

While she must film in the state for at least one more month per her contract, she said she would not return for a potential third season if it is still filmed there.

Other celebrities have also spoken out against the new law. And another said that she is doing the same thing she's fighting against.

Chris Ortman, a spokesman for the Motion Picture Association, issued a statement saying the group planned to "monitor developments".

"Milano was able to garner support from other feminists on Twitter, many using "#Lysistrata2019".

Milano has also threatened to quit her Netflix show Insatiable if its production remains in Georgia.
