Hollywood actress takes her clothes off in anger to protest Alabama abortion law
In an apparent act of defiance toward Alabama policymakers, Hollywood actress and model Emily Ratajkowski has removed her clothes for everyone to see.
In response to the recent passage of a law outlawing abortion in the state, and employing what can only be described as an “I’ll show them” approach, Ratajkowski posted a naked photo of herself on Instagram with a caption deriding members of the Alabama legislature who voted in favor of the ban.
Below a photo showing her wearing only a strategically placed flower, the British-born, California resident provided her own analysis of Alabama public policy and legislative intent.
“This week, 25 old white men voted to ban abortion in Alabama even in cases of incest and rape,” she wrote. “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.”
A common theme among those voicing opposition to the law has been the involvement of men in the process despite the legislation having been sponsored by State Rep. Terri Collins (R-Decatur) and signed into effect by Governor Kay Ivey.
As the Daily Mail noted, Ratajkowski has been a frequent supporter of liberal causes and was a vocal critic of the confirmation of Justice Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court of the United States.
