Actress and activist Alyssa Milano is beside herself. Singer Rihanna denounced Alabamas’ legislature as “idiots.” Lady Gaga calls the decision to outlaw almost all forms of abortion “heinous.”

These are just some of the superstar entertainers who have cried out vociferously against the all-male Alabama Senate voting block that has now criminalized abortions on any level, sans when the woman’s life is in danger. Alabama’s female Governor Kay Ivy signed the bill into law on Wednesday.

Alabama passed the most restrictive abortion bill in the country, shockingly warning that the punishment for doctors performing an abortion may be 99 years in prison. Other states including Georgia, Ohio, Missouri and a dozen others have also passed similar bills, though much less Draconian in nature.

The reported long term goal is to finally have the U.S. Supreme Court finally overturn the Roe vs. Wade decision made by the same court that legalized abortions nationwide back in 1973.

Check out the blazingly-hot reactions from a herd of big-name celebrities, beginning with Ms. Robyn Fenty on Twitter:
