On Friday, the state of Georgia passed a bill protecting the unborn by limiting abortions after the fetus has developed a heartbeat in its mother’s womb. A bill that seems moderate sparked controversy among Hollywood celebrities who oppose the bill calling it “evil” for restricting women from getting abortions after six weeks.
Alyssa Milano, who has been back in the public eye after the Me Too movement was born in 2017, begin her threats to boycott the state of Georgia if Governor Brian Kemp proceed with further action to pass the “Heartbeat” bill. The former actress posted a letter via Twitter with over 50 celebrity names who stand behind Milano to boycott the state from producing or spending anymore more money.
All the commotion from the celebrities did not stop Governor Brian Kemp and legislators from signing the bill into law on Friday the 29th of March that will restrict abortions after a fetal heartbeat is detected.
Once the bill was signed into law, the Governor posted a few statements on his twitter page where he affirms that legislators will continue to fight for life, speak for the those who cannot speak, and protect humans regardless of age.
At least 20 out of the 50 states in the United States have implemented similar bills that will protect life, according to legislators.
States with Fetal Heartbeat Bill:
- North Dakota
- South Carolina
- West Virginia
