Emrata pose nue contre les lois anti-​​avortement

La star a décidé de frapper fort pour montrer son opposition aux sénateurs de l'Alabama qui ont voté pour l'interdiction de l'avortement.

Sur ce sujet
Une faute?

La mannequin et actrice Emily Ratajkowski s'est entièrement dénudée sur Instagram pour protester contre la nouvelle loi anti-avortement en Alabama. Les sénateurs de l'État ont voté la loi HB 314 qui interdit l'avortement, sauf en cas de danger pour la mère ou le fœtus. Les médecins pratiquant l'IVG seront quant à eux passibles d'une peine allant de 10 à 99 ans de prison.

Nombreuses ont été les stars à se mobiliser contre la loi, et la dernière en date est Emily Ratajkowski, qui a posée nue sur Instagram, cachant ses seins de son bras droit, et ses parties intimes d'une fleur. «Cette semaine, 25 vieux hommes blancs ont voté pour interdire l'avortement en Alabama, même en cas de viol ou d'inceste. Ces hommes de pouvoir imposent leurs volontés sur les corps des femmes afin de perpétuer le patriarcat et le complexe carcéral en empêchant les femmes ayant peu de moyens de choisir de ne pas se reproduire. Les États qui tentent d'interdire l'avortement sont ceux qui ont les plus fortes populations de femmes noires. C'est une affaire de classe et de race et une attaque contre les droits fondamentaux des femmes, protégés depuis Roe vs Wade en 1973. Nos corps, nos choix», a-t-elle posté en légende.

Une loi qui rend «malade» Kylie Jenner

Quelque temps plus tard, l'actrice a publié une photo d'elle manifestant à Washington D.C. contre la nomination de Brett Kavanaugh à la Cour Suprême en octobre 2018, où elle avait été arrêtée aux côtés d'Amy Schumer. On peut la voir tenir une pancarte sur laquelle est écrite «Respectez l'existence des femmes ou attendez-vous à notre résistance», sur la photo.

Le droit à l'avortement est aussi menacé dans l'Ohio, au Mississippi, au Kentucky, dans le Missouri, en Géorgie, dans l'Iowa et dans le Dakota du Nord. Rihanna, Minka Kelly, Mandy Moore et Busy Philipps font partie des célébrités qui se battent contre ce mouvement anti-avortement en utilisant le hashtag #YouKnowMe (vous me connaissez, en français), afin de faire passer leur message.

«J'en fais encore des cauchemars»

Kylie Jenner, quant à elle, a expliqué à ses abonnés que la nouvelle loi de l'Alabama la rendait «malade», en postant un montage des 29 sénateurs républicains qui ont voté la loi, dans sa Story Instagram. Minda Kelly a, elle, partagé sa propre expérience de l'avortement. Elle a expliqué y avoir eu recours étant jeune. «C'est la décision la plus intelligente que j'ai pu prendre à l'époque, que ce soit pour moi ou mon petit ami de l'époque, mais aussi pour ce fœtus», a-t-elle confié.

De même, Milla Jovovich a elle aussi confié avoir eu recours à l'avortement en 2016. «C'est l'une des expériences les plus horribles que j'ai vécues. J'en fais encore des cauchemars», a-t-elle écrit sur Instagram.

When I was younger I had an abortion. It was the smartest decision I could've made, not only for myself & my boyfriend at the time, but also for this unborn fetus. For a baby to've been born to two people – too young and completely ill equipped – with no means or help from family, would have resulted in a child born into an unnecessary world of struggle. Having a baby at that time would have only perpetuated the cycle of poverty, chaos and dysfunction I was born into. Forcing a child to be born to a mother who isn't ready, isn't financially stable, was raped, a victim of incest (!!), isn't doing that theoretical child any favors. For those of you insisting abortion is murder, and to Rep. Terri Collins who said »an unborn baby is a person who deserves love and attention – forget bringing up the mother might be in need of some »love and attention. What do you think happens to these kids who end up bouncing around in foster care, live on government assistance because the mother has no help, can't afford childcare while she works a minimum wage job, and is trapped in a cycle of trying to survive on the meager government assistance so many of you same pro-lifers are determined to also take away. If you insist on forcing women to carry to term, why do you refuse to talk about comprehensive sex-ed, the maternal mortality rate, free daycare, paid maternity leave? Our lives, traumas & family planning is for no one to decide but us. Certainly not a group of old white men. Speaking of men... With all this punishment for women I wonder where all the punishment is for the men in this scenario. By looking at the photo of all the men who are making this mess, I find it hard to believe that if it were the autonomy of a man's body, health and life in question, I cant help but be certain we wouldn't be having this conversation in the first place. I appreciate seeing men speak up on this issue - women do not get pregnant alone. Lest we forget, outlawing abortion has never stopped women from attempting it. @abortionfunds @yellowfund & @EmergeAmerica @emilys_list @runforsomethingnow who work 2 elect pro-choice candidates. #YouKnowMeUne publication partagée par Minka Kelly (@minkakelly) le 16 Mai 2019 à 5 :48 PDT

I don't like to get political and I try to only do it if a really have to and this is one of those times. If someone doesn't want to continue reading, you have been warned. Our rights as women to obtain safe abortions by experienced doctors are again at stake. Last Tuesday, Georgia Governor Brian Kemp signed a draconian bill into law that outlaws all abortions after six weeks – before most women even realize they're pregnant – including in cases of RAPE OR INCEST. This makes Georgia the sixth state to pass such a restrictive six-week abortion ban, joining Ohio, Mississippi, Kentucky, Iowa, and North Dakota. These laws haven't been passed yet, but lawmakers in these states are trying. Abortion is hard enough for women on an emotional level without having to go through it in potentially unsafe and unsanitary conditions. I myself went through an emergency abortion 2 years ago. I was 4 1/2 months pregnant and shooting on location in Eastern Europe. I went into pre term labor and told that I had to be awake for the whole procedure. It was one of the most horrific experiences I have ever gone through. I still have nightmares about it. I was alone and helpless. When I think about the fact that women might have to face abortions in even worse conditions than I did because of new laws, my stomach turns. I spiraled into one of the worst depressions of my life and had to work extremely hard to find my way out. I took time off of my career. I isolated myself for months and had to keep a strong face for my two amazing kids. I started gardening, eating healthier and going to the gym everyday because I didn't want to jump into taking anti depressants unless I had tried every other alternative. Thank God I was able to find my way out of that personal hell without turning to medication, but the memory of what I went through and what I lost will be with me till the day I die. Abortion is a nightmare at its best. No woman wants to go through that. But we have to fight to make sure our rights are preserved to obtain a safe one if we need to. I never wanted to speak about this experience. But I cannot remain silent when so much is at stake. #prochoice #prochoicegenerationUne publication partagée par Milla Jovovich (@millajovovich) le 14 Mai 2019 à 11 :02 PDT
