Alyssa Milano calls for 'sex strike' over Georgia abortion law

Alyssa Milano calls for a sex strike to protest Georgia heartbeat bill

"Our reproductive rights are being erased".

J.J. Abrams and Jordan Peele, whose new HBO show "Lovecraft Country" will begin production in Georgia in several weeks, said that, while there were no immediate plans to move the show out of state, they would "stand shoulder to shoulder with the women of Georgia" and donate their fees to groups that are "leading the charge against this draconian law". Until women have legal control over our own bodies we just can not risk pregnancy.

Under current law, women in Georgia can seek an abortion during the first 20 weeks of pregnancy, but House Bill 481 would only allow women to get abortions before a fetal heartbeat is detected, which is at about six weeks gestation.

The entertainment industry in particular is wrestling over the Georgia law because many films and TV shows are made in the state due to its widely popular tax incentives.

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

'JOIN ME by not having sex until we get bodily autonomy back.

HBO's 'Watchmen' teaser trailer is here
The series will star Oscar and Emmy victor Regina King, Don Johnson , and Jeremy Irons in unspecified roles. Watchmen debuts in fall 2019 on HBO.

A number of actors had signed an open letter in March pledging not to work there should the law pass.

The bill was signed into law earlier this week.

The law is scheduled to come into effect on 1 January, but is expected to face challenges in the courts.

While she must film in the state for at least one more month per her contract, she said she would not return for a potential third season if it is still filmed there.

Already, production companies owned by the Duplass brothers and The Wire creator David Simon are refusing to shoot in Georgia until the bill is repealed.

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. It also would allow for abortions when a fetus is determined not to be viable because of serious medical issues.
