In response to Georgia's new "heartbeat bill," which bans abortions after a fetal heartbeat is detected, actress Alyssa Milano and a few of her pro-abortion pals called for women to take back control of their bodies by "not having sex until we get bodily autonomy back."
"Our reproductive rights are being erased. Until women have legal control over our own bodies we just cannot risk pregnancy. JOIN ME by not having sex until we get bodily autonomy back. I'm calling for a #SexStrike. Pass it on," Milano wrote on Twitter Friday.
Milano was pointing to the popular pro-abortion argument that without the option to abort a pregnancy, women have no control over what happens to their own bodies. However, by stating that women can take back that control through abstinence, she made an excellent argument for reproductive responsibility.
While pro-lifers applauded Milano's efforts (though not for the reasons the actress intended), her critics on the left lambasted the idea of withholding sex to protest anything. Some pointed out that weaponizing sex promotes the narrative that women only have sex to placate men. Others noted that the sex strike ignores the LGBTQ community and disregards cases of sexual violence.
On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck and Stu Burguiere agreed that Milano's "sex strike" was actually a great idea on multiple levels, though they lamented that fellow feminist actress Bette Midler had joined the movement to swear off sex.
