Earlier this week, 25 white male senators voted passed the most restrictive abortion laws in the country, outlawing abortion in the state, including cases of rape and incest. The state’s governor Kay Ivey signed the bill a day later, with the law’s architects pushing for the matter to be taken up in the Supreme Court, with the overturning of 1973’s Roe vs Wade Ruling in their sight.
General reaction to the bill has been expectedly negative, with a worldwide outcry and the hypocrisy of 25 men making a law that will affect women, and the notion of a doctor getting 99 years imprisonment for aiding an abortion process causing rightful anger. An array of celebrities have joined the protest, with many sharing statements on social media, and some even talking about the bill during live appearances and concerts (Matty Healy, we stan.)
