Actress Alyssa Milano and other Hollywood celebrities have set their sights on Georgia after the state passed a pro-life “heartbeat” bill, banning abortion after 6 weeks.
In a letter to Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp, Milano and the celebrities threatened to boycott the state if they allowed the heartbeat bill to be implemented.
“But we cannot in good conscience continue to recommend our industry remain in Georgia if H.B. 481 becomes law,” she wrote. “This dangerous and deeply-flawed bill mimics many others which have already been deemed unconstitutional. As men who identify as small-government conservatives, we remind you that government is never bigger than when it is inside a woman’s body or in her doctor’s office.”
The letter continued: “This bill would remove the possibility of women receiving reproductive healthcare before most even know they are pregnant and force many women to undergo unregulated, hidden procedures at great risk to their health.”
In an unexpected twist, pro-life “Unplanned” actress Ashley Bratcher, who plays pro-life activist Abby Johnson in the film, responded to Milano’s letter with a scorching takedown in defense of the unborn.
“For the latter part of a year I’ve watched as women I’ve admired, like you, spoke out in regards to women’s rights, more specifically women’s reproductive rights,” Bratcher wrote. “With radical laws like the ones in New York and Vermont being passed, it’s more critical than ever that we are using our voices to fight for the rights of women.”
She added: “One problem, you’re forgetting about the rights of women within the womb. If feminism is all about equal rights, then where are her rights?”
Hopefully, Milano and the other celebrities actually take Bratcher's words to heart and sees the movie.
