On Monday, the Good Place actor shared a thread of posts on Twitter regarding the foetal heartbeat law, calling it “inhumane” and “blatantly demonstrative of a hatred of women”.
“This anti-abortion law in Georgia is so upsetting, inhumane, and blatantly demonstrative of a hatred of women, a disregard for our rights, bodies, mental health, and essentially a punishment for rape victims, forcing to carry the baby of their rapist,” Jamil wrote.
Jamil continued: ”I had an abortion when I was young, and it was the best decision I have ever made. Both for me, and for the baby I didn’t want, and wasn’t ready for, emotionally, psychologically and financially.
The actor and body positivity advocate continued by addressing the large number of children that end up in foster homes before suggesting Georgia’s new law will mean the state could become “inundated with children who are unwanted or unable to be cared for”.
“It will be hard to find great fostering for them all,” Jamil explained.
”The anti-abortion law is also especially targeted at those without the means/ability to move state.
“Women who are marginalised, poor or disabled will, as ever, be the ones to suffer the most.
”The wealthy will have so much more freedom.“
Jamil isn’t the only celebrity to speak out against the ban.
