'Unplanned' Actress Responds to Pro-Abortion Loon Alyssa Milano
Pardon my mid-thirties CW Network ignorance, but I'm not sure when the last time Alyssa Milano did anything notable in the acting space. Sure, I could look her up on IMBD.com, but that just goes to my point. It seems the "actress" is now a full time activist. Milano headed up the letter-sending committee on behalf of 50 or so actors who you'd also have to look up on IMBD.com, -- boycotting Georgia for Georgia daring not to kill babies after the detection of a fetal heartbeat. Heading a letter committee of her own, Ashley Bratcher who's staring as Abby Johnson in the biopic Unplanned responded to Alyssa Milano with a powerful message of her own.
For the latter part of a year I’ve watched as women I’ve admired, like you, spoke out in regards to women’s rights, more specifically women’s reproductive rights. With radical laws like the ones in New York and Vermont being passed, it’s more critical than ever that we are using our voices to fight for the rights of women. One problem, you’re forgetting about the rights of women within the womb. If feminism is all about equal rights, then where are her rights?
It's a good point, but I fear that one will be lost on Milano and her baby-killing cohorts. Pro-choice people don't see unborn people as having any rights at all. As long as you can't see the baby, it's okay to kill the baby. As long as the baby is hidden by a layer of flesh, it's okay to chop it up and suck it out. Which is why Unplanned is even a movie at all: Abby Johnson saw an ultrasound of a baby being killed and it changed her entire world.
Bratcher then explained how Georgia was raking in fat cash from the movie business, which Milano used as part of her cudgel against Georgia in her threat of boycott. That's when Bratcher dropped this point, which is quite good:
Well Alyssa, let me make something very clear to you. In Georgia, we care just as much about being pro-life as being pro-film. We don’t believe in putting a price tag on the value of a human life. Our brave leaders have stepped up to say enough is enough, we will no longer sit idly by as innocent lives are taken by the thousands each day. If you fault Georgia for choosing to be morally correct over politically correct, then that says more of your personal agenda than the goal of our governor to protect life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness for all. You claim that the HB481 “Heartbill Bill” would make Georgia the most regressive state in the country; I couldn’t disagree more. Abortion is so 1973. Welcome to 2019, a time in which medical advances preserve the life of babies born as early as 21 weeks. In case you didn’t know, that’s three weeks earlier than what most states in the U.S. consider “viable” in their abortion legislation.
Here's why that point is brilliant: abortion isn't about women, it's about money. Milano inadvertently exposed herself by threatening Georgia's Hollywood cashflow over the heartbeat bill, and Bratcher threw it back in her face.
Bratcher further points out that Milano was born in 1972, when abortion was illegal, thus escaping the slaughter from inside the womb.
All in all, the entire letter is powerful, and I recommend you read it in its entirety. What I'm kind of loving about certain Millennials is their willingness to go toe-to-toe with people, and doing it publicly, damn the consequences. Like what Bratcher did here. I approve.
Unplanned hits theaters today.
