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.
