Alyssa Milano asks social media users to share their 'personal abortion' stories to show 'importance of bodily autonomy'

Actress and activist Alyssa Milano is asking women to share their "personal abortion" stories for her to broadcast on her new weekly podcast, "Sorry Not Sorry."

What are the details?

In a Friday tweet, Milano wrote, "If you'd like to share your personal abortion story on my podcast to help shine a light on the importance of bodily autonomy, please record story on your voice memo app and email it to below address."

"If you'd like to remain anonymous please say so in your email," she added.

According to Deadline, Milano's latest project is set for a spring release.
The outlet reported that Milano's podcast will address "social, political, and cultural issues from the perspective of unapologetic guests."

"The podcast will focus on shaping narratives and changing hearts and minds to bridge the ideologies of a divided nation," the Deadline's report added.
Some of those "unapologetic guests" include former Vice President Joe Biden, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, and more.

"I'm not sorry for using my voice. I'm not sorry for making people uncomfortable while being the voice for those who have been silenced," Milano said. "I am grateful for this opportunity to instigate empathy and conversation while highlighting the people leading change by service throughout our great country."

What else?

In March, Milano was one of the celebrities instrumental in trying to strongarm Virginia Republican Gov. Brian Kemp into vetoing a bill on abortion.

The "heartbeat bill," Georgia H.B. 481, would prohibit the majority of abortions as early as six weeks from conception. Current Georgia state law permits abortions up to 20 weeks. Abortions after six weeks would be permitted in cases such as incest, physical emergency, rape, and any pregnancies considered "medically futile."

Earlier in April, the Georgia House of Representatives approved the bill by a vote of 92 to 78. The bill awaits Republican Gov. Brian Kemp's signature. The governor has said that he will sign the bill into law.

"Georgia values life," Kemp said of the bill. "We stand up for the innocent and speak for those who cannot speak for themselves. The Legislature's bold action reaffirms our priorities and who we are as a state."

Milano and her Hollywood cronies promised to withdraw production work from the state if Kemp signed the bill into law, and circulated an open letter to that effect.
