Padma Laksmi,, Taylor Swift and More Celebrities React to the Supreme Court Overturning Roe v. Wade: ‘A Disgusting Step Back’

Many celebrities shared their reaction to the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade after nearly 50 years.

Just one month after an opinion authored by Associate Justice Samuel Alito against the constitutional right to abortion was leaked to the public, the Supreme Court formally overturned the landmark case.

The decision will affect the reproductive rights of women across the country, as the legality of abortion will now be decided on a state-by-state basis.

Padma Laksmi, who has also been a vocal proponent of women’s rights, echoed those comments in a series of Twitter posts. “People will still get abortions,” she wrote on Friday. “These procedures won’t stop just because Roe v. Wade is overturned. This will only prevent safe, legal abortions from taking place.”

Taylor Swift retweeted former First Lady Michelle Obama's statement on the decision, which she called a "horrifying decision" that will have "devastating consequences." Swift added that she was "terrified that this is where we are" after decades of "fighting for women’s rights to their own bodies."

Demi Burnett declared: "ABORTION IS A CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT!!!!! THE GOVERNMENT SHOULD NOT CONTROL THE RIGHTS OF MY BODY!!!! I AM SICK!!!!!"
