Busy Philipps counters anti-abortion laws with #YouKnowMe; Lady Gaga, others speak out


Actress and talk show host Busy Philipps is asking women who have had abortions to tell their stories as part of a push against anti-abortion legislation being considered and enacted in a number of states.


Many other celebrities, including Lady Gaga, actors Reese Witherspoon and Alyssa Milano and director Ava DuVernay, took to social media to push back against anti-abortion legislation.


Gaga offered her prayers and detailed her thoughts : "It is an outrage to ban abortion in Alabama period, and all the more heinous that it excludes those (who) have been raped or are experiencing incest non-consensual or not.


Actress Michelle Rodriguez also posted a series of tweets decrying the legislation in several states, offering her followers information on how to get involved, urging women to move and saying, "Turning back time to the knuckle dragging era of cave men, sad."


"The Good Place" actress Jameela Jamil warned: "Hope the people of Alabama who want the abortion ban are up for donating their money and space to the MEGA influx of kids in need of care, coming your way."


"Terrifying + insane" is how musician Maggie Rogers described the legislation in one tweet, adding, "all I’m left with is this boiling feeling of helplessness + anger + fear in my chest.
