Alyssa Milano endorses ‘sex strike’ to protest anti-abortion laws

Actress Alyssa Milano on Saturday called for a sex strike to protest anti-abortion laws. 

“Our reproductive rights are being erased. Until women have legal control over our own bodies we just cannot risk pregnancy,” she tweeted.  

“JOIN ME by not having sex until we get bodily autonomy back,” she added. “I’m calling for a #SexStrike.” 

Milano also said that a sex strikes have been effective, tweeting a Quartz article on the subject. 

Milano is a vocal pro-choice advocate. She said this week that she would be boycotting the state of Georgia after the state’s governor signed a “heartbeat bill,” which would outlaw abortion when a fetal heartbeat is detected, into law. The law could make abortion illegal as early as six weeks into pregnancy. {mosads}

The actress and vocal “Me Too” supporter told BuzzFeed News in a statement Thursday if her Netflix show “Insatiable” continues to film in Georgia, she will not return for a third season. A few production companies also said they would boycott the state.
