Actor brothers Stephen and Alec Baldwin went public this week with their disagreements about the rights of unborn babies and legalized abortion.

Alec (“Saturday Night Live”) recently joined dozens of celebrities in criticizing Georgia for passing a bill to ban abortions after an unborn baby’s heartbeat is detectable.

A few days later, his pro-life brother Stephen (“The Usual Suspects”) said he could not be silent anymore about his brother’s abortion advocacy, Breitbart reports. Stephen criticized Alec for promoting a “spirit of hate” by supporting the killing of unborn babies.

“avoided tweets like this long as I could,” Stephen wrote Monday on Twitter. “Love will ultimately wins Jesus [Loves], but for so long I’ve sat back & trusted God as my own family members have perpetrated the spirit of hate … through abortion Mockery & blindness. #sad #Alec #hates #pray.”

Stephen also shared a quote from conservative political commentator Ben Shapiro at the March for Life: “We built our lives for our children. And then something happened …” He promoted the new pro-life film “Unplanned” on his Twitter feed as well.

The Georgia legislature passed the heartbeat bill (House Bill 481) last week, and Gov. Brian Kemp said he will sign it. The legislation would ban abortions on an unborn baby after their heartbeat is detectable, around six weeks. It would allow exceptions for rape, incest and threats to the mother’s life. In addition, the bill would allow parents to claim unborn babies as dependents on their taxes and include the unborn baby in census data. It also would allow mothers to collect child support for pregnancy and delivery costs from the father prior to the baby’s birth.

The bill recently drew the attention of actress/abortion activist Alyssa Milano, who encouraged Hollywood to boycott the state for being pro-life. Alec Baldwin was one of dozens of celebrities who signed an open letter by Milano in opposition to the bill.

In the letter, Milano claimed the pro-life bill is “dangerous” and unconstitutional.

“As men who identify as small-government conservatives, we remind you that government is never bigger than when it is inside a woman’s body or in her doctor’s office,” Milano wrote. “This bill would remove the possibility of women receiving reproductive healthcare before most even know they are pregnant and force many women to undergo unregulated, hidden procedures at great risk to their health.”

Celebrities are threatening to boycott Georgia if Kemp signs the bill. Many Hollywood television shows and movies are filmed in the state.

Kemp told WTOC News 11 that the pressure from Hollywood will not change his mind, and he will sign the bill when it reaches his desk.

“I do not think it will hurt the film industry in Georgia or any other business whatsoever,” Kemp said. “Us sticking up for our Georgia values and protecting life is not going to protect a bad business environment in Georgia, I can promise you.”

The American Civil Liberties Union said it will sue to overturn the law if Kemp signs it.
