The state of Alabama in America has passed a law that says women cannot have an abortion, and women and many men are pissed at the abortion law being passed. The law has been kicked into action after the governor, Kay Ivey of Alabama signed off on it. Outrage has come in from many politicians and celebrities with the most notable being Alyssa Milano who shouted the sex strike.
Milano jumped Twitter asking women to go on a sex strike in response to the abortion law passed in Alabama. Although many understood Milano’s no strike comments was to bring attention to women losing their rights of what they do to their bodies- some say Milano’s no sex strike was ignorant. Men are not the ones that like sex. Women enjoy sex as well.
So, Milano suggesting women stop having sex with men until the abortion ban is reversed just doesn’t sit well with not just men but women as well. A vote of 25-6 passed abortion ban in Alabama that would mean any doctor who engages in abortion on any patient can face up to 99 years in prison for doing so. Even if the person was raped or in a case were a family member gets another pregnant, labelled as incest, there are no exceptions.
Your pregnant. You must have the baby according to the new abortion ban passed in Alabama. Many women are horrified by this new bill that was passed- which they feel has placed woman’s rights back by decades. A woman’s body is hers to do with it as she pleases many women have been saying. Milan said this of the abortion ban in Alabama:
“I don’t think there’s a human on the planet that is not pro life. Nobody wants to get an abortion,” she said. “But there are circumstances that we cannot avoid. There’s the mother’s health, there’s just not being ready … And what that means financially.
Just because there are women that don’t believe in abortion doesn’t take away someone else’s right.”
