Halle Berry, Donald Trump and More Stars React to SCOTUS Roe v. wade
“Arms have more rights than women.” This was Halle Berry’s response after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade on Friday, June 24, ending a woman’s constitutional right to an abortion as roughly half of the nation’s states moved to ban the procedure. In Louisiana, Kentucky and South Dakota, abortion is now prohibited in virtually all cases, including rape and incest. “I’m outraged! What the Supreme Court did was BULL****,” Halle said on social media. “Something needs to be done! Guns have more rights than women. Stop this war on women and keep your laws out of our bodies. We need to ban together and NOT accept this! We can’t just post about it, we have to DO SOMETHING about it.” Other stars opposed to the historic decision include Taylor Swift, who said on social media that she was “terrified” that the United States had come to this, and Mark Ruffalo, who noted that “this country has been founded on the separation of church and state,” stating the SCOTUS destroyed that ideal and “morphed into a political organ of the religious right,” among many others. “What a sad day for this country,” Andy Cohen posted. “Guns for everyone and no reproductive rights.
