Remember Alyssa Milano? The actress who had enough free time to attend the Kavanaugh hearings? Earlier this year she was behind a Hollywood protest of Georgia’s “heartbeat bill” resulting in dozens of Hollywood actors signing on to her pledge not to film in the state if the bill passed. The bill was signed into law earlier this week.
“Our reproductive rights are being erased,” she tweeted last night. “Until women have legal control over our own bodies we just cannot risk pregnancy.”
While she was unable to stop the law by attacking Georgia’s economy, she is now trying a new approach that hits below the belt, not the wallet. Milano is now calling for a “sex strike.”
At the time of this writing, her tweet has received over 5,000 retweets and more than 13,400 likes. This morning #SexStrike is trending on Twitter, as people are responding hilariously to Milano’s latest attempts at pro-abortion activism:

I love reading tweets that this as they demonstrate inherent prejudice within the Dems/Left & theit #IdentityPolitics. They EXPECT all women to think the same & as they do, all Blacks, all Hispanics, all members of the LGBT community. Yr suppose to be a monolithic group thinker

Hmmmm, I had no idea that condoms & birth control pills are being outlawed – please let us know where this is happening…& abstinence apparently works as well…you have lost no rights – you are spouting propaganda & justification for the murder of innocent babies;- you are evil

Does anyone else see the irony in calling for a #sexstrike to gain choice regarding unintentional pregnancies?

You not having sex just made the world a better place for us dudes. Now there’s one less colossal raging psycho out there we’ll have to possibly date in order to find the right woman. From men everywhere across this great nation, from the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU!!!

I get the point you’re trying to make, but this implies that sex is a commodity given to men. Women enjoy sex too. We’re not toys that can be taken away from men when they’re misbehaving. It objectifies women and doesn’t teach men why freedom over our bodies is important.

She’s admitting that abortion as an option increases risky behavior.
She’s also admitting that abstinence works.
This #SexStrike is going to reduce the number of abortions performed in this country.
I’m not seeing a downside to this.

Abstinence is always the best birth control. THANK YOU for coming around to the Evangelical Right. Love you Alyssa and Praise God 🙏🙌

NARRATOR: This is the moment where Alyssa’s transformation to evangelical Christianity started. She also realized she had solved the “free birth control” question.

Who’s the boss now, Alyssa? It ain’t you.
