A Democrat who ran for Florida Congress is calling on all women to stop having sex with conservative men.
Her comments come on the heels of feminist Alyssa Milano calling for a #SexStrike.
Our reproductive rights are being erased.
Until women have legal control over our own bodies we just cannot risk pregnancy.
JOIN ME by not having sex until we get bodily autonomy back.
— Alyssa Milano (@Alyssa_Milano) May 11, 2019
USA Today reported that Milano is calling on her followers to join her in a sex strike to protest anti-abortion laws – and the response has not been great.
The actress and activist, 46, took to Twitter late Friday to share her idea, which comes after one of the most restrictive abortion laws in the nation was signed in Georgia earlier this week. The “heartbeat bill” makes it illegal to have an abortion after a heartbeat has been detected in the womb — about six weeks into a pregnancy.
“Our reproductive rights are being erased. Until women have legal control over our own bodies we just cannot risk pregnancy,” she wrote. “JOIN ME by not having sex until we get bodily autonomy back. I’m calling for a #SexStrike. Pass it on.”
However, one notable difference between Pam Keith’s call and Alyssa Milano, is that Milano wants women to stop having sex with all men, while Pam is targeting conservative men.
Keith’s latest tweet, though, seems to be a contradiction to a 2018 interview where she earnestly said, “I’m going to be honest with you. My recommendation to women is to always tell yourself yes because there’s a lot of people out there who are going to tell you no.”
Keith bills herself as a former U.S. Navy JAG officer, an experienced litigator, and an expert on workplace law.
The Floridian made her first abortive stab at running for office in 2016, when she ran for the U.S. Senate but could not clear the Democrat primary, losing to Democrat candidate Patrick Murphy, who, in turn, lost to sitting U.S. senator and Republican Marco Rubio.
Undaunted, Keith immediately threw her hat in the ring for the 18th District congressional race in 2018. She did not win that primary, either, and was handily defeated by Democrat candidate Lauren Baer — who also lost to a Republican, Rep. Brian Mast.
But that is not all. Keith also filed a lawsuit to try and force the state to allow her to run for the 17th District, as well. Keith was trying to force the state’s Democrat Party to let her vie to replace candidate April Freeman, who died suddenly of a heart attack in the middle of the 2018 House race. The party had to pick a successor, and Keith wanted to be that candidate by hook or crook. But she had to mark that up as yet another political campaign she lost when a judge threw her case out of court.
