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

James Woods shouldnt leave Twitter

Alyssa Milano has joined a host of celebrities calling for a change to the new abortion law passed in the U.S. state of Georgia.

Via Twitter, Milano said "Our reproductive rights are being erased". "It's reminding people that we have control over our own bodies and how we use them".

The former star of "Charmed" and "Melrose Place" urged women in her tweet to stop having sex "until we get bodily autonomy back". I'm calling for a @SexStrike. "Pass it on." Take a look above.

WhatsApp in the blog post also warned users that some of the social-messaging app's platform may stop working on Windows devices. Critics have claimed that the apps available on Windows phones pale in comparison to their iOS and Android counterparts.


Another critique of Milano's suggestion was that it implies that witholding sex would only be punitive to men, and not to women.

Liberal activist Alyssa Milano used Twitter to call for a "sex strike" Friday night. "Bribing men for equal rights with access to our bodies is not how feminism works". Most famously, it was dramatized almost 2500 years ago in the play Lysistrata by Aristophanes. 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 had PLENTY of supporters for this new movement, too, with women all over social media coming forward in solidarity over the idea of a #SexStrike.

Authorities have not yet tried to arrest him, but Maduro has said he will 'face justice'. The opposition does not recognize the assembly's decisions.


As of Saturday morning, the #Lysistrata2019 tag had begun to pick up steam on Twitter, with many of these users deploying it to show support for the sex strike idea. Come on guys, Let's save lives! Some members of the entertainment have sought to protest the bill by calling for a boycott of Georgia. It effectively prohibits abortion once a doctor can detect a fetal heartbeat, which can occur as early as six weeks into a pregnancy. The law won't go into effect until 2020, but since some women sometimes don't even know they're pregnant at six weeks, it's making a huge impact.

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.
