Kacey Musgraves takes jab at Alabama senators over abortion ban: What happens when they knock up their mistresses?

Kacey Musgraves maintains her “country rebel” reputation after taking a jab at Alabama lawmakers for passing a near-total abortion ban.

The celebrated Grammy winner, 30, who sings “Space Cowboy” and “Butterflies” asked a very important question on Thursday:

She had some help from Saturday Night Live’s Kenan Thompson, in GIF form, for the zinger, directed at hypocritical politicos.

Country singers tend to lean the other way politically — or avoid the conversation altogether. Musgraves was praised by her followers for speaking out and using her “platform so beautifully.”

Her comment was described as “Dixie Chicks serious.”

There were plenty of stinging remarks directed at the politicians, including the state’s former governor Robert Bentley.

Most of the comments, though, were how politicians would find work-arounds to get abortions, if needed.

The current governor, Kay Ivey, signed the bill into law — and it’s one of the toughest state anti-abortion laws we’ve seen. It makes no exception for incest or rape survivors. Doctors performing abortions would get significantly more prison time than rapists. (Reminder: Abortion is still legal in all 50 states.)

Celebrities have been speaking out in the wake of Georgia and Alabama passing these laws recently — and putting Roe v. Wade in jeopardy. They have been sharing their abortion experience, lead by Busy Philipps’s with her “You Know Me” hashtag getting women to bravely share their abortion stories.

Padma Lakshmi has been using the hashtag “Him Too” to get men to come forward and speak out on behalf of women’s rights.
