LGBTQ+ Celebrities & Allies React to Overturning of Roe v. Wade

Even though leaked reports indicated that the U.S. Supreme Court was set to overturn Roe v. Wade – thereby allowing individual states to ban abortion under any circumstances as they see fit – broke some time ago, it still hit hard when the decision was officially announced on Friday, June 24.

Progressive organizations have already started vehemently speaking out against the ruling and calling for those in power to act.

“Women are under attack, LGBTQ+ people are under attack, BIPOC people are under attack, and we are justifiably outraged,” Human Rights Campaign Interim President Joni Madison said in a statement. “We cannot relent — we must fight back.”

While organizations have offered pre-planned statements in defense of reproductive rights and activists have been trying to educate people on how to navigate this new, bleak reality, the rest of us have been left to react out of anger, fear, and frustration for what has been done and what is yet to come.

Many celebrities are among those who have been using their platforms to draw attention to the outrage and injustice of this decision, while also warning that the Supreme Court’s unprecedented decision is unlikely to stop with Roe v. Wade.

Here’s what some LGBTQ+ celebrities and allies have been saying:
