Alyssa Milano calls for sex strike; ignites social media

Alyssa Milano

Some members of the entertainment have sought to protest the bill by calling for a boycott of Georgia.

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

She was joined among others by Duplass Brothers Productions and David Simon, writer of the television series The Wire.

"Our reproductive rights are being erased", Tweeted Milano late Friday night to her almost 3.6 million followers on the social media platform.

The former star of "Charmed" and "Melrose Place" urged women in her tweet to stop having sex "until we get bodily autonomy back".

He said, for example, that Trump's efforts to get ex-White House Counsel Don McGahn to fire Mueller was a "flaming example" of corrupt intent.

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".

Another critique of Milano's suggestion was that it implies that witholding sex would only be punitive to men, and not to women. I'm calling for a @SexStrike.

"I will fight tooth and nail to move Insatiable to a state that will protect our rights".

A number of movie and TV production companies said they will cease operations in Georgia in response to the bill. It also would allow for abortions when a fetus is determined not to be viable because of serious medical issues. This is my leverage. Georgia is the fourth state to enact this kind of law this year, according to the New York Times. "I will use it for the betterment of society and our great country".

Matt Walsh pointed out that "the only dudes affected by the sex strike are the emasculated pro-abortion guys who are already on [the pro-abortion] side". "Make no mistake, this is an attack aimed squarely and purposely at women", the said in a statement. The Georgia law is set to commence on January 2020. "We encourage those who are able to funnel any and all resources to these organisations".
