(WHAS 11) – Alyssa Milano, an outspoken critic of Georgia’s new anti-abortion law, is calling for people across the nation to participate in a “sex strike” in an attempt to reverse the law.

Milano joined over 40 celebrities and dozens of film production representatives from across Georgia signed an open letter to Kemp trying to stop the measure from becoming law — threatening to pull film and TV production out of Georgia.
