Alyssa Milano is responding to Georgia’s new abortion laws by announcing a sex strike, but not everyone is thrilled with her idea.
The new “heartbeat bill” signed into law in Georgia earlier this week makes it illegal to have an abortion after a heartbeat is detected, which is usually about six weeks into a pregnancy. Oftentimes, many women don’t even know they’re pregnant yet at this point.
“Our reproductive rights are being erased. Until women have legal control over our own bodies we just cannot risk pregnancy,” Alyssa wrote on Twitter. “JOIN ME by not having sex until we get bodily autonomy back. I’m calling for a #SexStrike. Pass it on.”
Evan Rachel Wood responded to Alyssa‘s tweet to express her issues with the idea, though she fully supports anyone’s right to express themselves through the strike. Many others have tweeted similar thoughts as well.
“I worry this feeds into the religious belief that sex is for pro creation and never for pleasure. This is in the minds of a lot of people supporting abortions bans. No sex until marriage and babies. Meanwhile me and the other queer ladies let out a huge sigh of relief,” she wrote. “But also. ITS YOUR BODY. Strike. Dont strike. The choice is yours babes. ✌? and I support how you choose to express yourself all the way.”
