Emily Ratajkowski has made herself loud and clear, she wants the Alabama abortion law to be stripped.
Yesterday, Governor Kay Ivey signed the new Alabama Human Life Protection Act, and people are outraged by the decision made that effectively bans abortion for those living in Alabama.
In a tweet, she said, “Today, I signed into law the Alabama Human Life Protection Act. To the bill’s many supporters, this legislation stands as a powerful testament to Alabamians’ deeply held belief that every life is precious & that every life is a sacred gift from God.”

Today, Emily has responded to the new law, saying, “This week, 25 old white men voted to ban abortion in Alabama even in cases of incest and rape.
These men in power are imposing their wills onto the bodies of women in order to uphold the patriarchy and perpetuate the industrial prison complex by preventing women of low economic opportunity the right to choose to not reproduce.
The states trying to ban abortion are the states that have the highest proportions of black women living there. This is about class and race and is a direct attack on the fundamental human rights women in the US deserve and are protected by under Roe vs. Wade. Our bodies, our choice.”
