Actress Alyssa Milano pushed back Tuesday against a Georgia bill banning abortion after a heartbeat is detected in a letter to Republican Gov. Brian Kemp signed by about 30 other Georgia-based TV and film makers.
Milano, who is currently filming her Netflix comedy “Insatiable” in Atlanta, brought a letter to Kemps office in Atlanta urging him to veto the so-called heartbeat bill. The bill plans to ban abortions after the babys heartbeat can be detected.
Milano has claimed the bill strips “women of their bodily autonomy.” (RELATED: Alyssa Milano Says The Red MAGA Hat Is The New White Hood)

The heartbeat bill (HB 481) would not apply in cases of rape, incest, or if the mothers life was in danger, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. If a woman conceived through rape or incest, she would have to file a police report in order to have the abortion performed.
“We are going to do everything in our power to move our industry to a safer state for women if HB 481 becomes law,” Milano said, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Despite Milanos outcry, Kemp plans to sign the heartbeat bill in April. The Georgia General Assembly approved the bill on March 29.
