See what Reese Witherspoon, Kerry Washington, and Alyssa Milano Tweeted about the new law of Texas
After the U.S. Supreme Court denied the request to avail emergency relief blocking Texas’ on Wednesday night. A new law was made that bans this abortion at six weeks and, opponents, effectively eliminate access to abortions statewide. In this law, some big names in the entertainment industry also expressed their opinions about the legislation.
An entire group of well-known actors, musicians, other artists, and companies shared their own opinion on the news on social media. Kerry Washington, Dua Lipa, Alyssa Milano, St. Vincent, Bad Robot, Reese Witherspoon, Eva Longoria Baston, and Pink were among them. A lot of celebrities also shared an image with the text supporting reproductive freedom.
Celebrities all around have reacted with anger to the new Texas abortion law followed by the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision. They have all raged out to the idea of not blocking the strictest prohibitions in the country. Actors, musicians, and other public figures joined abortion rights groups and expressed their outrage over the last few days at the passage of the new law of Senate Bill 8, which states that abortions are banned after a fetal heartbeat is detected.
Banning abortion from six weeks of pregnancy has given rise to an outrageous outcome to the justices’ refusal to change the law. Also, the court did not rule on whether it was constitutional, which has caused controversy. Equally outrageous is the ban which makes it completely illegal to “aid or abet” an abortion, which seems incriminating to doctors, health care workers, and even for those who took women to the procedure.
Reese Witherspoon tweeted that she supports all the women of Texas who have the right to make their own decisions about their own bodies. #BansOffOurBodies

Planned Parenthood, get a boost when a Texas judge gave a ruling that temporarily clinics stops from being targeted by lawsuits from an anti-abortion group. However, it does not invalidate the law whose passage is likely to embolden moves for stricter abortion laws in other GOP-led states.
