Offset Sounds Off on Controversial Alabama Abortion Law
Offset is one of many music stars expressing their view on Alabama's recent abortion ban.
The Migos rapper shared a tweet Saturday (May 18) about his disapproval of the Alabama Human Life Protection Act, which bans women from having an abortion after six weeks into their pregnancy. The act, which was signed by Alabama Governor Kay Ivey on May 15, essentially outlaws abortions, even in cases of rape and incest.
"New laws is slavory," Offset tweeted. "To force a rape victim to keep a child is SLAVORY IM NOT PROUD TO SAY IM FROM AMERICA!!!"
The new law -- which won't take effect for six months -- makes it a Class A felony to perform an abortion, with doctors facing a prison sentence of 10-99 years under the provisions voted on by an all-male slate of 25 Republican Alabama senators.
Offset isn't the only music star speaking out against the law. Lady Gaga, Rihanna Janelle Monae, Kacey Musgraves and many others have also expressed their disapproval on social media.
