Several celebrities, including Viola Davis, Bette Midler and Stephen King, reacted after the Supreme Court voted Friday to overturn Roe v. Wade, which guaranteed women’s constitutional right to abortion.
“They did it. They did it to us! He overturned the #SCOTUS #RoevWade, enshrined in the Constitution as stable law for over 50 years. How dare they? This #SCOTUS is completely silent to the will and even the actual needs of the American people.” — Bette Midler, via Twitter.
This Supreme Court is an absolute disaster. From giving people the right to bear arms to depriving women of their rights to autonomy over their own bodies. We weren’t interacting, we saw it coming. — Patricia Arquette, via Twitter.
“I’m so horrified because that’s where we are – that after so many decades of fighting for women’s rights in their bodies, today’s decision stripped us of it.” – Taylor Swift, via Twitter.
“It’s very hard for your country to tell you that the life you actually live is not as important as some dividing cells.” – Elizabeth Banks, via Instagram.
“This is a dark day in American history. The Supreme Court has ruled out a woman’s right to choose. The result will shatter women’s lives, make children and families poorer, increase the financial burden on men, and erode the American economy. This is a terrible tragedy for all of us.” – Aisha Tyler, via Twitter.
“Guss the animal. Now more than ever we have to use our voice and our power! We are people.” — Viola Davis on Twitter.
“Not long ago, this would have been dystopian science fiction. But the legacy of the 2016 election and the indelible mark of the Republican Party is here in black and white. How far this will go again depends on American voters. Blame it on extremism or Indifference, but this is America.” – Seth MacFarlane, via Twitter.
“Today is tough, but we are not finished here because the conversation and struggle for our civil rights in this country will always go on. Equality for all, not just some. Standing with those who need our help the most right now.” – Cyndi Lauper, via Twitter.
“What a sad day for this country. Guns are for everyone and no reproductive rights. Crooked. Crooked. – Andy Cohen via Twitter.
“It’s the best 19th century Supreme Court so far.” Stephen King, via Twitter.
“Today’s Supreme Court decision to repeal the #RoeVsWade will have deadly consequences, with the greatest harm falling on people of color who already face disproportionate discrimination in our country and struggle with a severe maternal mortality crisis.” – Alyssa Milano, via Twitter.
“America, if you’ve never voted, November is your choice.” – Henry Winkler, via Twitter.
“Yes, no one tells me what I can and cannot do with my body. No one tells me who I will love or marry for that matter. America… you are in the fight for your lives.” – Ariana Debus, via Twitter.
“I hope more people will understand that the decision to have an abortion is very personal and complex. It is a decision that must be approached with compassion and empathy, not denigrated or criminalized.” – Padma Lakshmi via Twitter.
