The Daily Wire reports that the actress wrote on Twitter yesterday, “I love God. I believe in God, but I don’t believe my personal beliefs of which we can’t confirm should override scientific facts and what we can confirm.”
She then ended the post with the following Bible quote: “‘If I have told you earthly things and you do not believe, how can you believe if I tell you heavenly things?’ John 3:12.”
Lila Rose, founder of pro-life advocacy group Live Action, responded to Milano, writing on Twitter, “You don’t have to love God to acknowledge the irrefutable science that a unique, individual human life begins at the moment of conception. But if you love God, then you also will love His children. He’s a father, and every single one of us are created in His image.”
The Daily Wire’s Matt Walsh wrote to Milano, “Do you think God creates a child in a woman’s womb just so it can be killed, or do you think He might have better plans in mind for it?”
Milano has been leading the charge against the state of Georgia after the senate passed H.B. 481–otherwise known as the “heartbeat bill”– which would ban abortions after six weeks unless the pregnancy was conceived through rape or incest.
Last week, the actress sent a letter signed by 50 Hollywood celebrities to Georgia Governor Brian Kemp and Georgia House Speaker David Ralston threatening them with the loss of “billions of billions of dollars” if H.B. 481 becomes law.
“As actors, our work often brings us to Georgia. We’ve always found your state to be populated with friendly and caring people,” she writes. ”We’ve been glad to bring millions of dollars in revenue to support Georgia’s schools, parks and communities. But we cannot in good conscience continue to recommend our industry remain in Georgia if H.B. 481 becomes law.”
