Several celebrities, including Viola Davis, Bette Midler and Stephen King, responded after the Supreme Court voted Roe v. Wade on Friday, guaranteeing the woman the constitutional right to abortion.
“They did it. They TAKE YOU! This #SCOTUS completely dulls the will and even the real need of the Americans. – Bette Midler, via Twitter.
“This Supreme Court is an absolute disaster. From granting people the right to bear arms to removing women’s rights to autonomy over their own bodies. We are not reactive, we see it coming.” – Patricia Arquette, via Twitter. “I am absolutely afraid that this is where we are – that after so many decades of men fighting for women’s rights on their own bodies, this decision has led us to do so.” – Taylor Swift via Twitter.
“It’s very difficult to tell your country that the life you live is not as important as some cell sharing.” – Elizabeth Banks, via Instagram.
“This is a dark day in American history. The Supreme Court has destroyed women’s right to vote. The result will be the destruction of women’s lives, poorer children and families, an increase in the financial burden on men and the destroying American economy. It is a terrible tragedy for all of us. – Aisha Tyler, via Twitter.
“Gutted. Now more than ever we have to use our voice and power! WE are human.” – Viola Davis, via Twitter.
“Not so long ago, it became dystopian sci-fi. But the aftermath of the 2016 elections and the indelible GOP brand are printed here in black and white. How far this can go depends again on American voters. Blame it on extremism or apathy, but this is America. – Seth MacFarlane, via Twitter.
“It is difficult now, but we are not ready here, because here in the country the conversation and the struggle for our civil rights will continue. Equality for all, not just for some.” Stand with those who need our help today. – Cyndi Lauper, via Twitter.
“It’s a sad day for this country. Weapons are for everyone and no reproductive rights. Rotated. Rotated.” – Andy Cohen via Twitter. “It’s the best Supreme Court ever built in the 19th century.” – Stephen King via Twitter.
“The Supreme Court’s current decision to reverse #RoeVsWade has fatal consequences, with the most harmful being people of different skin colors who already face unequal discrimination in our country and face a serious maternal crisis.” – Alyssa Milano, via Twitter
“AMERICA, IF YOU HAVE NOT VOTED YET, NOVEMBER is your choice.” – Henry Winkler via Twitter.
“Yes, no one told me what I could and must not do with my body. No one told me who I would love and whom I would marry because of it.” America … you’re fighting for your life. – Ariana DeBose, via Twitter.
