Celebrities react to Supreme Court ruling on abortion. Celebrities including Viola Davis, Bette Midler and Stephen King, among others, have spoken out after the US Supreme Court today overturned Roe vs. Wade, landmark 1973 ruling that legalized abortion nationwide, according to information from Associated Press.

«They did it. THEY DID IT TO US! #SCOTUS has nullified #RoevWade, enshrined in the Constitution as law established for more than 50 years. How dare they? This #SCOTUS (Supreme Court of the United States, for its acronym in English) is absolutely deaf to the will and even to the real needs of the American people,” said Bette Midler via Twitter.

For her part, actress Patricia Arquette, who has won an Oscar, three Golden Globes, a BAFTA, two Screen Actors Guild Awards and two Emmys, also used her social networks to express her point of view after the decision of the Supreme Court on abortion.

“This Supreme Court is an absolute disaster. From giving people the right to carry weapons to taking away from women the right to autonomy over their own bodies. We weren’t being reactive, we saw it coming.»

The reactions of celebrities after the Supreme Court ruling on abortion continued. Singer Taylor Swift said: «I am absolutely terrified that this is where we are – that after so many decades of people fighting for women’s rights over their own bodies, today’s decision has stripped us of that.»

Also, Elizabeth Banks expressed: “It is very difficult for your country to tell you that the life you are living is not as important as some dividing cells.” Aisha Tyler commented: “This is a dark day in history from the United States. The Supreme Court destroyed the right of women to choose. The result will shatter women’s lives, impoverish children and families, increase the financial burden on men, and erode the US economy. This is a terrible tragedy for all of us” (Filed As: Celebrities React To Supreme Court Ruling On Abortion).

“Destroyed. Now more than ever we have to use our voice and power! WE, the people”, expressed the renowned actress Viola Davis on her social networks, who was joined by the singer Cyndi Lauper: “Today is difficult, but we are not done because in this country the conversation and the fight for our civil rights always will continue. Equality for all, not just for some. Stand united with those who most need our help at this time.”

But it was the actor, screenwriter and producer Seth MacFarlane who held nothing back: “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 are printed here in black and white. How far this will go will once again depend on American voters. Blame it on extremism or apathy, but this is America” (Filed As: Celebrities React To Supreme Court Ruling On Abortion).
