Actress Bette Midler called for women to go on a sex strike to protest the recently passed Texas abortion law. She also called for Congress to protect women's abortion rights.

The Texas abortion law took effect on Wednesday, banning all abortion procedures after the detection of a fetal heartbeat. The law also allows private citizens to sue abortion providers.

“I suggest that all women refuse to have sex with men until they are guaranteed the right to choose by Congress,” Midler tweeted on Thursday.

Midler targeted the GOP in another tweet, saying the party's "cruelty" to women is "endless."

“The cruelty of the #GOP is endless. We are suffering COVID-19, hurricanes, apocalyptic flooding, wildfires from hell, joblessness, homelessness, evictions, racial strife, and they pick this hideous time to pile on yet another shock to women, by taking away their right to choose,” the actress wrote.

Democrats have already begun taking measures to thwart the Texas law.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, a California Democrat, announced that the House will vote to pass the Women’s Health Protection Act, which would protect abortion providers' rights, as well as a woman's right to seek an abortion.

She said the legislation would be voted on when the chamber returns to session on Sept. 20.

President Joe Biden asked the Gender Policy Council and White House counsel to begin a “whole-of-government effort” to address the new law.
