Actress Alyssa Milano has become a prominent face in the pro-abortion movement lately.
This week, she lashed out at pro-life advocates, calling them “evil, sexist and racist” for wanting to overturn Roe v. Wade and protect unborn babies. Milano is known for her roles in “Who’s The Boss?” “Charmed” and “My Name is Earl.”
“This is evil,” she wrote in an op-ed for Refinery29. “It’s sexist, it’s racist, and it’s going to result in women turning to illegal options. It’s part of the institutionalization of sexual violence against women in our courts and in the laws enacted by our elected representatives.”
Of particular concern to Milano was U.S. Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation. The U.S. Senate confirmed him as the fifth conservative justice to the high court earlier this month.
“The future of that right, the right of women to control their own bodies, was dealt a devastating blow by a Senate that is only 23 percent women, led by a Republican Judiciary Committee that is white and entirely male,” Milano wrote in reference to the vote. “And it cannot stand.”
She said the high court may slowly dismantle or completely overturn Roe, the 1973 decision that allowed abortions for basically any reason up to birth.
The problem goes beyond Kavanaugh to the lower courts, where more than 80 newly approved federal judges have been “rammed through” by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) in what she calls a “cowardly assault against a woman’s reproductive freedom.” …
“If anti-abortion politicians have their way, they will force even more women to carry unwanted pregnancies to term because they can’t afford an abortion or because the clinics in their state have been shut down,” thanks to the growing list of restrictions on providers. “The ability to decide when and whether to become a parent should never be tied to how much money a woman makes, how she gets her health insurance or where she lives.”

Worse yet, she says, is that these appointees will be the ones deciding whether those restrictions violate U.S. law.
She urged pro-abortion voters to flood the midterm elections so much that “Noah himself will get his hammer ready and start counting out cubits.” Abortion activists hope Democrats will take over Congress in November and block any future pro-life measures.
Pro-abortion groups labeled Kavanaugh a “serious threat” to “women’s right” to abortion, while national pro-life leaders have expressed high hopes for Kavanaugh and the future of unborn babies’ rights.
Kavanaugh served on the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for D.C. for more than a decade, where he wrote decisions protecting religious liberty and enforcing restrictions on abortion. Pro-life leaders believe he will do the same on the U.S. Supreme Court.
