Stars speak out against Roe V. Wade Draft Leak by Supreme Court

Sophia Bush, Lea Thompson, Shonda Rhimes and more are speaking out after overturning of Roe V. Wade.   

June 24th, the Supreme Court voted by a 6-3 vote to overturn the landmark ruling that guaranteed a woman’s constitutional right for an abortion. The decision comes just over a month after a draft opinion was leaked in May that revealed the Supreme Court’s plans to revoke the ruling.

“The Constitution makes no reference to abortion, and no such right is implicitly protected by any constitutional provision, including the one on which the defenders of Roe and Casey now chiefly rely — the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment,” Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito wrote in the opinion, per CNBC. “It’s time to listen to the Constitution, and to return the abortion issue to the people through their elected representatives.” 

Shortly after the news broke, stars took to social media to share their thoughts on the rollback.
