Some conservatives are now condemning actor Jim Carrey after he published a cartoon on Saturday depicting Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey being aborted as furor over the state’s controversial abortion ban continues to grow.
The ban, described as the strictest in the nation, was signed into law last Wednesday with no exceptions for rape or incest. It makes it a Class A felony for a doctor to perform an abortion and a Class C felony for attempting to perform an abortion in six months. The only exemption under the bill is if there is a serious health risk to the mother.
“I think If you’re going to terminate a pregnancy, it should be done sometime before the fetus becomes Governor of Alabama,” Carrey wrote in a tweet on Saturday which contained graphic artwork of Ivey being aborted.
Some conservatives reacted in disgust.
“You were one of my favorite actors. Honestly I’m disgusted by your lack of respect for the image is what happens to babies. They are sucked out of the mother. Shame on you Jim,” Christian recording artist Kaya Jones tweeted at the actor.
Live Action founder and President Lila Rose called out Twitter for what she argued was the “extreme double standard” in allowing Carrey to publicly promote Ivey’s death.
“The extreme double standard of @jack & @Twitter on full, gross display here. @JimCarrey publicly wishes death on someone and posts a gory photo of them being killed. He explicitly promotes a very violence that kills almost 1M people a year in the United States. & zero response,” she wrote on Twitter.
Outspoken internet preacher and lead pastor of Global Vision Bible Church in Tennessee Greg Locke said Carrey had “destroyed” his voice.
