Jennifer Lopez has been very vocal towards her stance on women’s reproductive rights, she has a strong opinion towards the ability for women to have access to medical facilities that can perform abortions if needed.
She does not agree with what is happening:”We are living in an American I don’t recognize.,” Lopez said in a post on Instagram clearly stating that it is confusing to women in the country that a nation that prides itself for being about freedom and choice would act in a way that prevents women to choose whether or not have children.
This weekend the Supreme Court of the United States has made abortion illegal and left it to the states to decide what consequence if any would a woman have if she had an abortion. This is an utter denial of reproductive rights to women and a situation that has ignited the organization of women across the country and there have been protests everywhere and are growing.
The Supreme Court had ruled that Roe v. Wade could no longer be used as an argument so that the right to have an abortion can be protected by the constitution of the United States.
“The Constitution does not confer a right to abortion; Roe and Casey are overruled; and the authority to regulate abortion is returned to the people and their elected representatives,” said the Supreme Court of the United States this past weekend when it voted.
In response many brands have come forward to help women in need of having an abortion, companies like Netflix, Dicks Sporting Goods and others have said that they would pay up to four thousand dollars for those who would need to travel out-of-state to an facility that can perform the procedure.
