Hollywood celebrities have hit the panic button after Texas officially enacted its “heartbeat” abortion law early Wednesday, making it the first state to ban abortions once a fetal heartbeat is detected.
Stars including Michael Moore, Amy Schumer, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Dave Bautista, Alyssa Milano, and Amy Brenneman have hit out against Texas GOP lawmakers, dubbing them the “Texas Taliban” and accusing them of enacting “sharia” law.
“Force vasectomies on men,” actress Rosanna Arquette tweeted.
As Breitbart News reported, abortion providers attempted to block the law at the last minute by beseeching the U.S. Supreme Court for an injunction. But the Court has so far not ruled on the matter, though it could do so at any time.
The Texas law also contains a unique enforcement mechanism allowing any private citizen to file a civil lawsuit against an abortion provider or any other individual who “aids or abets” a “criminal abortion.”
The pro-life victory has triggered Hollywood stars, who are urging their fans to fight back.
