Evan Rachel Wood jokes men should get 'mandatory vasectomies' after Georgia 'heartbeat' bill signed into law

Actress Evan Rachel Wood jokingly suggested "mandatory" vasectomies for men until they want to have children on Twitter this week after Georgia passed a bill that would ban abortions once a fetal heartbeat is detectable.
“Mandatory vasectomies until you want to have children,” the “Westworld” actress tweeted on Thursday. “They can be reversed, so. Come on guys, Lets save lives!”
“Whats that?” she continued. “A hard no? Why? Cause its your body and we don't get to make that choice for you? Ooooooohhhhhh!!!”

She later followed up in another tweet clarifying her stance on Friday, saying: “I don't want mandatory vasectomies because I don’t believe we should legislate peoples bodies, its a dangerous slippery slope.”
“I used the example to point out the hypocrisy of always putting the responsibility, punishment,  blame, or means of prevention, solely on women,” she added.

Her comments come as a number of Hollywood actors and high-profile figures voice their opposition to multiple anti-abortion laws that have made passage in a number of states recently.
Earlier this week, Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp (R) signed a bill into law on Tuesday that bans abortions in the state once a fetus’ heartbeat is detected, which typically occurs around six weeks into a pregnancy.
Last week, another bill in Alabama that seeks to ban nearly all abortions in the state passed through its state House of Representatives. The bill received overwhelming support from the Republican-led legislature, with only three members voting against it.
