Alyssa Milano’s ‘Sex Strike’ Backfires As Pro-Life Christians Praise Call For Abstinence

Actress and pro-choice advocate Alyssa Milano ignited a social media firestorm Friday by encouraging women not to have sex “until we get bodily autonomy back” – an action that pro-lifers said would accomplish many of their goals.

Milano’s tweet was posted the same week Georgia’s governor signed a bill banning abortion when a heartbeat is present. Milano had threatened a boycott by dozens of actors if the bill wasn’t vetoed.

“Our reproductive rights are being erased,” Milano wrote on Twitter. “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.”

But Milano’s Tweet may not have had the consequence she intended. Christians, pro-lifers and social conservatives said her idea sounded a lot like abstinence.

Among the supporters was Joseph Backholm, legal counsel and director of the Embassy at the Colson Center for Christian Worldview.

“This could be accidentally amazing,” Backholm tweeted. “If women stop having sex with men they aren’t married to: STDs plummet. Every kid has dad around. Women don’t feel used. No more abortions cause women are no longer pregnant & alone. What’s not to love? Do it ladies! Make men earn it! #SexStrike.”

Abby Johnson, the former Planned Parenthood clinic director who is now pro-life, backed Milano’s idea. Johnson is the subject of the film Unplanned.

“On this Mother’s Day, I am in FULL support of pro-abortion women going on a sex strike. Sounds great for our movement and significantly damaging to the abortion industry,” Johnson wrote. “Thanks, @Alyssa_Milano!!”
