Emily Ratajkowski has made a powerful statement about a cause she feels incredibly passionate about.
The 27-year-old model stripped bare using nothing but a pink anthurium flower petal to cover her vagina in a stand against the new Alabama law, which makes nearly all abortions in the state illegal and performing one a felony.
But her naked protest has since been slammed by British journalist Piers Morgan who deemed t inappropriate.
Morgan agreed with her message, but said the image she chose to accompany her views, he had took issue with.
“Right message, ruined by such a dumb self-promoting photo,” the Good Morning Britain host tweeted.

In her post, Em Rata wrote: “This week, 25 old white men voted to ban abortion in Alabama even in cases of incest and rape.”
“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.”
She went on to explain she believed the decision was “about class and race” — calling it a “direct attack” on fundamental human rights of women.
“Our bodies, our choice,” she concluded her powerful post.
The poignant message was shared just hours ago and has already received huge support from fans.
“Total boss, thank you,” one person said.
“You said it,” another fan agreed.
While one person wrote: “A woman’s body is her temple alone and any decision is hers to make.”
