Women are threatening not to have sex with men in protest of the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade as pro-choice supporters continued to rally through the weekend.
Protests erupted on Friday following the court’s ruling to overturn women’s federal right to abortions, with 26 states expected to further restrict or outright ban abortions.
And now, women are being called to withhold sex from men ‘until abortion rights are federal law’ as calls for a nationwide sex strike also gain momentum on social media.
Women of America: Take the pledge. Because SCOTUS overturned Roe v. Wade, we cannot take the risk of an unintended pregnancy, therefore, we will not have sex with any man — including our husbands — unless we are trying to become pregnant,’ one Twitter user wrote.
‘I live in New York and I am DOUBLE FURIOUS with the Supreme Court. I want to find people who are coordinating a mass sex strike. That is our power,’ another woman raged. ‘Women have the power here. No more sex until abortion rights are federal law.’
There were also calls for ‘sex strike’ across the country as terms including #SexStrike and #abstinence began trending online.
