Eva Longoria On Alabama Abortion Ban: ‘It’s Archaic, Not Progressive, Not American’

Eva Longoria looked so chic as she arrived at the Kering Women in Motion Talks event held during the 2019 Cannes Film Festival at the Majestic Hotel in Cannes, France on Friday afternoon, May 17.

During the event, the 44-year-old Time’s Up co-founder opened up about the future of the movement, which aimed at combating sexual assault and promoting gender equality.

“We’re trying to figure out what is Time’s Up’s role in these elections, and how can we have an impact,” Eva said, according to Variety.

Eva also emphasized a need to focus on down-ballot votes at state and local levels, and pointed to Alabama’s recent passage of an anti-abortion law as a key example.

She said, “We see what’s happening in Alabama right now, which is crazy, archaic, not progressive, not American. That’s a state legislature… What’s happening in Alabama is so important in the world. It’s going to affect everybody if we don’t pay attention.”
