On Friday morning, Roe v. Wade was overturned, leaving women in a precarious situation as a 50-year constitutional right was taken away.
Some influential female artists took to social media to express their dismay of the ruling!
Megan Thee Stallion quickly expressed her displeasure with the decision on Twitter and Instagram:
“The court has failed us all — but we won’t back down. I’m going to keep fighting because everyone deserves access to the care they need.”
She invited her supporters to join her and PPact, Planned Parenthood Action, in a demonstration calling for the re-codification of constitutional rights.
On her Instagram Stories, Summer Walker also commented on various posts:
“let me gone now that people made I start telling the truth. This is a sad day in history, but catch me at my la show tonight. It’s gonna be a vibe.”
She added these two stories later:
“Imagine doing allll this just to try n keep the white population declining as it has been so rapidly lol. so i guess we should all start saying goodbye to the rest of our natural born rights lol, since this is a dictatorship & all.”
On her Instagram story, Kelly Rowland also addressed the issue, saying:
“My heart just sunk!”
A fan's below-the-belt tweet that was later deleted was placed with a dance video that Cardi B had already tweeted, and this set her off.
The Bronx rapper is renowned for communicating with her audience on politics. She seems to be reluctant to share now, though.
Tweeted by her:
“30,40,50 …Don’t bring my kids up on shit…This is all because I put a video of me dancing and y’all wanted me to talk about rod vs wade …WHY YALL BRING UP KIDS FOR? Wtf my kids gotta do wit yall misery?”
After over 50 years, the constitutional right to an abortion was overturned by the Supreme Court in Roe v. Wade.
Roe v. Wade's decision to be overturned will instantly have an impact on the 13 states that passed trigger laws that forbade or severely restricted abortion and were meant to go into effect when Roe was overturned.
