After the US Supreme Court upheld the universal right to abortion, Hollywood actors and singers reacted to the statement. Singer Taylor Swift tweeted: “I am absolutely terrified that this is where we are – that after so many decades of people fighting for women’s rights to their own bodies, today’s decision has robbed us of that.” (Read also | Billie Eilish questions internet’s focus on Johnny vs Amber lawsuit over abortion law

Singer Selena Gomez tweeted: “It’s horrible to see a constitutional right being taken away. A woman should have the right to CHOOSE what she wants to do with her own body. End of story.”

On Twitter, actor Halle Berry wrote: “I’m furious! What the Supreme Court has done is b******. Something must be done! Guns have more rights than women. Stop this war against women and keep your laws off our bodies We must ban this together & DO NOT accept this! We can’t just post about it, we have to DO SOMETHING about it.”

Actor Cynthia Nixon tweeted: “This statement today at the height of Pride Month is particularly devastating. The foundation on which Roe rested is the same that has protected so many of our rights as LGBTQ+ people. Clarence Thomas says the same thing. We’re all in this together .” Actor Patricia Arquette wrote: “This Supreme Court is an absolute disaster. From giving people the right to bear arms to taking away women’s autonomy over their own bodies. We weren’t reactive, we saw it coming.”

Alyssa Milano said: “Today’s Supreme Court ruling overturning #RoeVsWade will have deadly consequences, with the damage being hardest for people of color who already face disproportionate discrimination in our country and who struggle with a serious maternal mortality crisis. If abortion is banned nationwide, pregnancy-related deaths could increase by 21 percent nationwide, and 33 percent among black women.”

“Banning abortion will have a disproportionate impact on people of color, LGBTQ+ communities, people struggling to make ends meet, youth and people living in rural areas. Banning abortion is about controlling women and trans men It’s about white supremacy, the patriarchy and misogyny It’s a sad day for America,” she also wrote on Twitter.

Jessica Biel wrote on Instagram Stories: “I’m furious. You should be too. What happened today isn’t just a disgusting step backwards for women – it undermines our ability to make decisions about our own bodies… “But it is also dangerous. You have not banned abortion. You have banned safe access to abortion.”

Actor Richa Chadha wrote on Twitter: “You don’t get rights until you fight for them. Americans will organize after the sexist overthrow of Roe V Wade by two sex predators they had on SC’s couch. The French took to the streets when the Fuel prices rose a few years ago. Protest is an essential part of democracy.”

The US court overturned the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that established a woman’s right to abortion, stating that individual states can restrict or prohibit the procedure on their own. “The constitution does not grant the right to abortion. The power to regulate abortion is returned to the people and their elected representatives,” the court said in a 6-3 ruling quoted by the AFP news agency.
