Actress and #MeToo activist Alyssa Milano has urged women to take part in a "sex strike" to protest against a new abortion law in the state of Georgia.

Axar.az reports citing foreign media.

"Until women have legal control over our own bodies we just cannot risk pregnancy," she tweeted.

Georgia is the latest state to enact legislation restricting abortion.

Ms Milano's tweet divided opinion on social media, sparking a debate that led to the #SexStrike hashtag trending on Twitter in the US.

The so-called "heartbeat" bill, which was signed by Governor Brian Kemp on Tuesday, is scheduled to come into effect on 1 January.
