Black Women Explain Why Alyssa Milano’s Pro-Choice ‘Sex Strike’ Is A Terrible Idea

Twitter, do your thing.

Published May 12th

States like Ohio, Alabama and Georgia turned the clock way back on women’s reproductive rights.

The laws, which are aimed to challenge the 1973 Roe vs. Wade Supreme Court ruling that legalized abortion, have made many women outraged in the states in question.

The laws could even produce jail time for women who leave their residential state for one with less abortion restrictions. And while the anger from so many is very justified, actress Alyssa Milano took to Twitter over the weekend to suggest women fight back with a sex strike.

  1. "Until women have legal control over our bodies we just cannot risk pregnancy," the actress tweeted in-part. "Join me by not having sex until we get bodily autonomy back. I'm calling for a sex strike. Pass it on."

    Well, many women, particularly Black women, weren’t interested in the proposed strike and let Milano know.

  2. What do you think? Is withdrawing from having sex with their partners the right or an effective step toward positive change? Let us know in the comment section below.
