Alyssa Milano, the actress-turned-activist behind the protest against Georgia’s pro-life legislation, wants women to share their “personal abortion” stories with her.
On Friday, the “Charmed” star asked women to use voice memo apps to record their abortion stories. She said she’ll feature them on her new podcast, “Sorry Not Sorry.”
Milano began aggressively speaking out about abortion in March, when Georgia’s so-called “heartbeat bill” passed the state Senate. If signed by Gov. Brian Kemp (R), the legislation would ban abortion after a fetal heartbeat is detectable, which usually happens sometime between six and seven weeks into pregnancy.
The 46-year-old celebrity launched a petition, encouraging her fellow Hollywood stars to boycott film and TV production work in the Peach State, should Kemp approve the bill.
Kemp, for his part, has promised to sign the bill, which was approved by a vote of 92-78.
“Georgia values life,” the governor tweeted. “We stand up for the innocent and speak for those who cannot speak for themselves. The legislature’s bold action reaffirms our priorities and who we are as a state. I thank these lawmakers for their leadership and applaud their undeniable courage.”
