Emily Ratajkowski has posed naked to draw attention to the passage of Alabama’s near-total ban on abortion.
The 27-year-old model posted a nude photo of herself on Instagram on Thursday, posing with her arm draped across her breasts and a single Anthurium flower covering her vagina. While the content of this snap is pretty status quo for Ratajkowski’s social media account, the caption is serious, targeting the recent legislation banning nearly all abortions that was signed by Alabama’s governor Kay Ivey on Wednesday.
“This week, 25 old white men voted to ban abortion in Alabama even in cases of incest and rape,” the “Easy” actress wrote alongside the image. “These men in power are imposing their wills onto the bodies of women in order to uphold the patriarchy and perpetuate the industrial prison complex by preventing women of low economic opportunity the right to choose to not reproduce. The states trying to ban abortion are the states that have the highest proportions of black women living there. This is about class and race and is a direct attack on the fundamental human rights women in the US deserve and are protected by under Roe vs. Wade. Our bodies, our choice.”
This is hardly the “Blurred Lines” video star’s first foray into politics. Ratajkowski has long been outspoken about issues involving women’s rights, previously getting arrested in October with Amy Schumer while protesting then-Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh.
