By Saturday, social media users had responded with comments ranging from total support and agreements to participate in the strike to sarcasm and accusations that Milano is actually anti-abortion herself
She responded to the criticism by doubling down on the call for a “sex strike.”
"I fully support a sex strike. It's not admitting that we are here to service men. It's reminding them that we have control over our own bodies and how we use them. Boycotting sex is an effective method of protest," she tweeted.
Milano, a vocal abortion rights activist and leading member of the #Hashtag Me Too movement, also vowed to boycott Georgia for television or movie production projects if the bill passed, which it did. The bill was then signed into law by Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp last week. Milano urged others in Hollywood to follow suit.
Georgia is just the latest of more than a dozen states trying to restrict access to safe and legal abortions in hopes of forcing a right-leaning, conservative United States Supreme Court to take up the issue as a means of overturning Roe v. Wade, the 1973 decision that legalized abortion.
