Roe v. Wade Overturned, Celebrities React #Roe #Wade #Overturned #Celebrities #React Welcome to JeroVibes:
This morning, June 24, 2022, The Supreme Court has ruled to overturn Roe v. Wade officially.
A draft of the decision leaked around early May 2022 that sent everyone around the country in a spiral, meaning Friday’s official decision doesn’t come as shock to many.
Celebrities and politicians took to their social accounts to address the situation.
President Barack Obama, who promised to codify Roe during his first term in office in 2008 and never did so, released a statement.
“Today, the Supreme Court not only reversed nearly 50 years of precedent, it relegated the most intensely personal decision someone can make to the whims of politicians and ideologues—attacking the essential freedoms of millions of Americans,” the statement read in part.
Obama urged people to stand with everyone who has been fighting for the right to choose.
