Evan Rachel Wood – activist. She is not afraid to express their opinions. This time, the actress opposed the tightening of the abortion law and asked to make a “vasectomy mandatory.” 

The other day in the US state of Georgia tightened the law banning abortion. A ban was introduced on termination of pregnancy for a period of more than six weeks, when the child’s heartbeat was already heard. The governor of Georgia said he signed the bill to “ensure that all of Georgia’s residents have the opportunity to live, grow, learn and prosper in our great state.” A few weeks before the law was signed, activists organized protests and are now fighting against it. Rachel Wood is among those opposed to the law. On Twitter, the 31-year-old actress said her position: “I beg. We were used and harassed enough. Now they want to control our bodies. I cannot even begin to explain what horrible consequences this law will have. Help. You are welcome. They want to cross out Row’s decision against Wade (a historical court ruling whereby a woman has the right to terminate a pregnancy until the fetus becomes autonomous (according to the law, this period occurs approximately at the 28th week). – Ed.).

Countless women just die! Don’t be silent! ”- wrote Wood on her blog. In response to the tightening of the law, Rachel exhibited her response measures – the introduction of mandatory vasectomy for men. “Introduce a mandatory vasectomy until you want to have children. After all, everything can be returned. Come on guys! Let’s save lives! Oh, what, hard? Why so? Because it is your body and we can not make a choice for you? Wow! ”The actress continued her reasoning. For violation of the new law, which will come into force on January 1, 2020, it is envisaged (with the exception of special cases) punishment up to life imprisonment and even the death penalty as murderers. Earlier in Georgia, women could have abortions up to the 20th week. Similar toughening of the law has also been passed in Kentucky, Mississippi and Ohio, and last year in Iowa. Recall that Evan had previously said that she wanted to commit suicide, but again touched on this topic in an article for Nylon to help other women cope with depression and choose life.

“Now, looking back, I understand that this is the worst thing that has ever happened to me,” said the star of the series “The World of the Wild West”. Already in 22 years, the actress decided to go to a psychiatric clinic to cope with the injury due to rape. “I felt like I was hit by a truck. Then, without thinking twice, I picked up the phone: “Mom, I tried to kill myself,” recalls Wood. On that day, Ryachel helped her mother call, confess and talk with a loved one. In response to her mother’s questions “Why,” the star just uttered “just wanted some space.” “My post-traumatic syndrome was caused by several rapes and a violent attitude that lasted for several years. When it came time to find a psychiatric hospital, my main concern, which most people do not have to worry about, was to find a way to get help so that no one would know about it. If the public had become aware of my problem, I would have much less chance of recovering, since I would have met with the cruelty of strangers, ”writes Wood.
