Alyssa Milano threatens to leave show to protest Georgia abortion law

Alyssa Milano Calls for Sex Strike to Protest Georgia Anti Abortion Law

Milano says the only way to change the minds of male politicians is to withhold sex.

Georgia's law won't be enforced until 2020, and is likely to be challenged in court based on the Supreme Court ruling in Roe v Wade that found unduly restrictive state regulation of abortion is unconstitutional. JOIN ME by not having sex until we get our bodily autonomy back.

"Our reproductive rights are being erased", the actress tweeted on Saturday.

Actress Alyssa Milano, in response to new pieces of legislation meant to make abortions more hard - if not impossible - to obtain, invoked a protest method with roots in ancient Greece: a "Sex Strike".

"Until women have legal control over our own bodies we just can not risk pregnancy", the actress wrote.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admits it will take a miracle for Manchester United to challenge for the Premier League title next season. Earlier, Legit.ng reported that Man United are set to seal a £15m deal for Daniel James from Swansea City in the coming days.

By Saturday morning, the #SexStrike hashtag was a top trending item on Twitter, though reaction to Milano's suggestion was divisive, with some supporting the notion wholeheartedly, while others outright mocked the idea.

'Bribing men for equal rights with access to our bodies is not how feminism works'. In ancient Greece, the playwright Aristophanes wrote "Lysistrata", in which the title character persuades other women to deny their husbands of sex until they end a war.

Milano did earn a supportive tweet or two ... More recently, director Spike Lee's 2015 film, "Chi-Raq", transferred the same idea to modern-day Chicago and gang violence.

Milano told Buzzfeed that she will do everything in her power to get as many productions as possible to move out of the state in response to Gov. Kemp signing a new abortion law. Her tweet came days after Georgia became the fourth state in the U.S.to ban abortions after a fetal heartbeat is detected - about six weeks into a pregnancy and before many women know they're pregnant.

The American actress called for "not risking pregnancy" until "women have legal control" over their bodies and subsequently proposed that women JOIN her by "not having sex until they regain bodily autonomy".
