John Cusack Seems to Link Georgia's Abortion Law to 'Children In Cages' and Advises People to Speak Out

If you follow John Cusack on Twitter, you already the actor tends to state his opinion bluntly. More often than not, Cusack can be found sharing his support of presidential hopeful and Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders or his disdain for President Donald Trump—it's never a surprise to see a tweet calling for impeachment on his feed. He regularly uses social media to share his opinions on all types of important issues, like climate change and the potential war between the U.S. and Iran.

The latest cause Cusack is taking a stand against on social media: A woman's right to an abortion.

The Serendipity star recently urged Americans to use their voices to speak out against the latest round of adversity women in states like Georgia, Ohio and Alabama—all of which have recently implemented draconian abortion laws that all but completely ban women from exercising their rights under Roe v. Wade.

However, it wasn't just the changes to abortion laws Cusack seemed to want people to be more vocal on—it's everything. To help support his point, Cusack managed to link the atrocities of "children in cages"—likely a reference to the harsh circumstances migrants are reportedly facing at the U.S. border—to the surplus of new laws targeting reproductive rights.

"Reproductive rights in Georgia Now Children in cages – now," Cusack wrote on Wednesday.

The tweet was in response to a follow-up a fan had to one of Cusack's earlier comments. "We all need good trouble – Silence & non-action is a deeply political choice in these times – there is neutral space to inhabit – no avoiding the fight – Zero chance of it happening," the 52-year-old wrote.

Cusack's comments come following Alabama's Republican-led Senate's passing of HB 314, which places a near-total ban on abortion in the state, on Tuesday night. Under the new bill, doctors could face up to 99 years in prison for providing abortions to women under any circumstance other than instances of "serious health risk" to a pregnant woman, a "lethal anomaly" of a fetus or an ectopic pregnancy, in which a fertilized egg grows outside of the uterus.

Meanwhile, CNN on Tuesday released exclusive images of migrant children sleeping on blankets on the ground at the Border Patrol facility in McAllen, Texas.

Alabama's abortion restrictions come following Georgia and Ohio, who recently passed laws preventing women from aborting a pregnancy after an embryo's heartbeat is detected. Missouri also passed a bill banning abortions after eight weeks of pregnancy on Thursday.

Cusack isn't the only Hollywood star to speak out against the new laws. Alyssa Milano, Ava DuVernay, Chris Evans, Busy Philips and Minka Kelly are just a few celebrities to criticize states' bans on abortion.

Newsweek's request for comment to Cusack was unanswered at time of post.
