On June 24, 2022, the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, thus making it a state's decision to decide on abortion laws.

50 years of federal abortion laws have been overturned in an instant and the American woman is mostly angry and grieving.

Celebrities have stepped up, condemning the actions as at least half of the states are now expected to outlaw or severely restrict abortions.

Until now, abortions were legal in the first and second trimesters of pregnancies.

Celebrities and activists have responded, largely condemning the decision and calling it a regression of women's rights as well as reproductive rights.

Michelle Obama stated she was heartbroken while Hillary Clinton vowed to fight on.

Younger gen stars like Dua Lipa and Hailey Beiber aired their disappointment in IG stories.

Amy Schumer, Viola Davis, Jamie Lee Curtis all stepped onto social media to express their grief with Davis saying, she was “gutted”.

Former POTUS Barack Obama also spoke up, calling the decision an attack on “the essential freedoms of millions of Americans.”
