Alyssa Milano: Don't Have Sex Until GA's Abortion Law Is Dumped

ATLANTA — Actress Alyssa Milano, one of Hollywood’s most vocal opponents of Georgia’s new abortion law, is calling on women everywhere to stop having sex until the law is rejected. Milano, who is currently filming in Georgia, made the call Friday night on Twitter. Last week, Gov. Brian Kemp signed the so-called Heartbeat Bill, which was passed back in March by the Georgia state legislature. The bill, authored by a suburban Atlanta Republican lawmaker, outlaws most abortions after about six weeks, which is when a fetal heartbeat is usually first detected.

The bill would allow abortions in cases where the mother’s life or health is in danger, or in cases of medical emergency. It also says an unborn child at any stage of development in the womb would be included in state population-based counts.

Milano, along with dozens of other entertainment celebrities and executives, protested the measure and is continuing to urge TV and film production companies to abandon the state. The entertainment industry contributes billions of dollars to Georgia’s economy. Tax-credits and other incentives created under former Gov. Nathan Deal made Georgia one of the largest entertainment industry hubs in the world.

So far, no film or production company now doing business in Georgia has announced they are ceasing any projects in the wake of the new law, and Milano herself is still filming the Netflix series “Insatiable” in Georgia because, she told BuzzFeed News, she is contractually obligated to do so.

However, Hollywood executive JJ Abrams and his company, Bad Robot, along with Jordan Peele and Monkeypaw Productions, are filming an upcoming HBO series in Georgia. Over the weekend, the companies announced that all proceeds from “Lovecraft Country” will be donated to Georgia Democrat Stacey Abrams’ organization, Fair Fight Georgia, and the ACLU of Georgia. In a statement reported by Fox News, the companies said the bill” is an unconstitutional effort to further restrict women and their health providers from making private medical decisions on their terms. Make no mistake, this is an attack aimed squarely and purposely at women. We stand with Stacey Abrams and the hardworking people of Georgia, and will donate 100% of our respective episodic fees for this season to two organizations leading the charge against this draconian law.”

Georgia is the fourth state to pass such a measure, joining Kentucky, Mississippi and Ohio. More than 250 bills restricting abortions have been filed in 41 states this year, according to the Guttmacher Institute, a reproductive rights research and advocacy group.
