Abortion rights women are on a sex strike across the country to protest the US Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade abortion rights law.
Hundreds of women who marched with protesters in New York City and other cities on Friday and Saturday held signs that read “No sex until we have abortion rights.”
Women say they are no longer willing to risk becoming pregnant since their options are severely limited.

Now women on social media have pledged to keep their legs closed to men – including their own husbands – to avoid unwanted pregnancies until the Supreme Court reverses its decision.
“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 tweeted. “Women have the power here. No more sex until abortion rights are federal law.”
To all the pro-Abortion sex strike chicks: good on you! No more allowing yourself to be used by morons who look at you purely as toys! You’ll be amazed at how good self-respect will feel!

Do all these women who say they’re going on a sex strike realize that they’ve now solved their abortion problem?

The whole sex strike thing feels so slut shamey to me like it’s just another way of saying “you won’t need an abortion if you just don’t have sex”. It’s still a form of trying to shame and control people’s bodies
