The outrage continues to grow over new Republican-led abortion legislation being introduced in Georgia and Alabama that call for long jail sentences for women who terminate a pregnancy after a fetal heartbeat can be detected, which typically takes place at around six weeks after conception — when many women may not even realize they’re pregnant.
In addition, the laws make no allowance for the victims of rape or incest, leading to a nightmare scenario in which a teenage victim (or younger) would be forced to carry her rapist’s baby to term or face years in prison.
Migos rapper Offset joins the chorus of celebrities who are speaking out about the new laws, comparing the legislation to “slavory [sic],” adding the all-caps message, “IM NOT PROUD TO SAY IM FROM AMERICA!!!”
A few minutes later, he tweeted an update after realizing he misspelled the word “slavery,” which he said was due to his “anger.”
Offset isn’t the only celeb to come out against the new laws, joining his voice to such stars as Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Pink and others.
