The star of Charmed and Melrose Place urged women in her tweet to stop having sex until we get bodily autonomy back.

Her tweet came days after Georgia became the fourth state in the US this year to ban abortions after cardiac activity is detected about six weeks into a pregnancy and before many women know they are pregnant.

We need to understand how dire the situation is across the country, Milano said. Its reminding people that we have control over our own bodies and how we use them.

She noted that women have historically withheld sex to protest or advocate for political reform. She cited how Iroquois women refused to have sex in the 1600s as a way to stop unregulated warfare. Most recently, she noted that Liberian women used a sex strike in 2003 to demand an end to a long-running civil war.

Milano received support from fans and her fellow actor Bette Midler joined her in calling for a sex strike. But both liberals and conservatives also lampooned the idea, conservatives praising her for promoting abstinence and liberals saying she was pushing a false narrative that women only have sex as a favor to men.

Milano said the criticism didnt bother her and that her tweet was having her desired effect, which is getting people to talk about the war on women.

She said she feared one of the laws could eventually be decided by the conservative-leaning US supreme court, which Republicans hope will overturn the 1973 Roe v Wade decision legalizing abortion.

That is absolutely horrifying to me, Milano said. Anyone who is not completely and totally outraged by this and doesnt see where this is leading, I think, is not taking this threat seriously.

Milano said people have to determine for themselves how long the sex strike should last. For her part, she hasnt decided yet how long she will forgo sex.
