Stars in Hollywood are making their voices heard in response to the leaked Supreme Court draft opinion that seeks to overturn Roe v. Wade. The document, written by Justice Samuel Alito, was published by Politico on Monday (May 2nd).
“It is time to heed the Constitution and return the issue of abortion to the people's elected representatives,” the document reportedly states.
Many stars spoke out on the issue. Reese Witherspoon tweeted, “Hey SCOTUS. Let Roe Vs. Wade stand. You did it in 1992. Stare Decicis. This has been decided.”
Sophia Bush posted to Twitter, “How nice that these ideological nuts who don't care about democracy or the will of the people—who overwhelmingly support a woman's right to choose—can feel safe inside whilst they eviscerate our rights and condemn women to die. Abortion will never end. Only safe abortions.”
Jameela Jamil added a gender-inclusive line to her Instagram post on the issue, writing, “This of course applies to people of all genders who can become pregnant.”
Rosanna Arquette added, “Get your Boots off our wombs.”
