Actress and singer Bette Midler has joined Alysia Milano in her call on women to “stop having sex with men” in response to Georgia’s new “Heartbeat” bill that bans most abortions once a fetal heartbeat can be detected.
“I hope the #womenofGeorgia stop having sex with men until these indignities are overturned,” Bette Midler said.

The law, dubbed the Living Infants Fairness and Equality (LIFE) Act (HB 481), prohibits abortions in the state after a heartbeat is detected, usually at about six weeks of pregnancy. Cases of rape, incest, or if the life of the mother is in danger are exceptions to the law.
In March, assorted Hollywood activists including Ashley Judd and Mark Ruffalo joined Alyssa Milano’s effort in threatening Georgia with a boycott prior to the “heartbeat” bill being signed into law by Gov. Brian Kemp (D-GA).
Midler’s opposition to Georgia’s “heartbeart” law joins other Hollywood-based political reactions, including three film companies pledging to boycott Georgia as long as the law remains on the books. David Simon’s Blown Deadline Productions, Killer Films CEO Christine Vachon, and Mark Duplass have vowed to boycott the state.
In November 2018 Midler called for President Trump and his family to be hanged ‘good and high’ in the form of a poem.
In her post, she included a video of Donald Trump Jr. talking about business dealings in Russia in 2011.
She recently attacked First Lady Melania Trump, using a revealing photo from her days as a model to label her “FLOTITS.”
The 72-year-old star has also referred to President Trump as a murderer, saying “the world is coming under siege from murderers, plunderers like him.”
The Hocus Pocus actress also found herself in some hot water in October for tweeting that women were the “N-world of the world.”
“‘Women, are the n-word of the world’ Raped, beaten, enslaved, married off, worked like dumb animals; denied education and inheritance; enduring the pain and danger of childbirth and life IN SILENCE for THOUSANDS of years. They are the most disrespected creatures on earth,” she said, later deleting the tweet and issuing an apology.
