Actress Alyssa Milano has been making headlines for years. In 2017, she was instrumental in the #MeToo movement. She has advocated for vegetarianism, supported political candidates, and crusaded against abortion restrictions. She even called for a “sex strike” to protest Georgia’s recently passed “heartbeat bill.”
After Georgia’s governor signed legislation banning abortions once a fetal heartbeat can be detected, more than one hundred actors pledged to boycott productions in the state. Five film production companies announced they would no longer work in the state as well.
One would not expect to find a litany of pro-life testimonies on Alyssa Milano’s Twitter feed, but the actor inadvertently invited the responses. Milano’s new podcast “Sorry Not Sorry” solicited stories from women who had abortions that Milano could share on the podcast. Milano then shared the tweet from “Sorry Not Sorry” and talked about how many stories she was hearing. This provoked a response from many pro-life women who had stories of their own to share.
While Alyssa Milano initially came into fame through her roll on the 80’s sitcom Who’s the Boss, she is better known now for her commitment to liberal political causes. She has been in the news this past week for her advocacy against Georgia’s HB481, which outlies abortion after a fetal heartbeat can be detected.
