Leftists are having an absolute meltdown over the leaked Supreme Court draft opinion that appears to show the potential for Roe v. Wade being overturned. These abortion proponents made their opinions known on Twitter.

Some of the most vocal advocates of upholding abortion access include celebrity figures. Many of these Hollywood stars took to social media to express their fear over the possibility of abortion law decisions returning to the state level. For example, “Star Trek” alum George Takei gave his opinion on the news by urging followers to “strike back.”

“Those motherf*****s really did it. First they came for Black voters, then they targeted LGBTQ+ families. Now, women of America, they’re overruling Roe v. Wade,” the 85-year-old actor tweeted. “We have to unite and strike back. Take to the streets. Overwhelm them at the ballot box. They have gone too damn far.”

“Those justices lied in their confirmation hearings about Roe being settled law,” Takei added in a follow up tweet. “That is grounds to impeach them, or at least to expand the court to counter the effect of their blatant and intentional deception.”

Actress Amber Tamblyn wrote: “Tonight our highest court declared war on more than half of its citizens – women and birthing people everywhere. The overturning of Roe V Wade is a political act of violence against us and we will not accept it. We will fight and we will not stop. EVER.”

“As the staggeringly partisan, right wing-dominated SCOTUS nudges America closer to Handmaids Tale status, the importance of voting in EVERY election becomes even more obvious,” Seth MacFarlane shared. “One would hope today’s news erases any further delusions that ‘both parties are pretty much the same.’”

Activist comedian Kathy Griffin used the news as an opportunity to remind everyone that this likely would not have happened if Hillary Clinton had won the 2016 election. She shared a photo of Clinton and wrote, 

“Roe v Wade has been overturned. Yes I know. Stay in my lane. Well I’d love to be posting about the met gala but this is the only attendee I care about. President Hillary Clinton never would’ve let Roe be overturned.”

Mia Farrow was also upset by the news. “Forced birth? Not really. I lived through the abortion ban years. The fact is that there wont be fewer  abortions,” she wrote. “Women will continue to get the abortion they need. Except those abortions wont be safe. Many, many women and girls will be mutilated or die.”

“The Handmaid’s Tale” actress Ever Carradine used the idea of Roe v. Wade being overturned to reference the show, which has been understood as an allegory for the fight to keep abortion legal. “Under His Eye,” she said. This line features prominently in both the television series and the book by Margaret Atwood.

“I’m already on this show. I don’t want to live it,” Carradine wrote in a follow up.

“Trust women. Vote,” Carradine went on. “Trust women trust women trust women. And vote. And trust women to make decisions about their bodies. #VoteBlueToSaveAmerica.”

She continued: “Quoting my cousin here ‘Just because you have a uterus does not mean that the state gains ownership over you when you become pregnant.'”

“I’m so, what’s the word right now? I can’t say it. Everyone is focused on whose wearing what at the Met Gala and women’s rights are taking the biggest hit in plain sight. I wish everyone would focus on one thing. We need everyone to focus on the news coming out regarding #SCOTUS,” Maria Shriver wrote.

“It’s an early draft, that’s important to say. Drafts can be overturned. If people raise their voices, drafts can be overturned. This is what one has to hope for in this type of situation, that this will be overturned,” she wrote in a follow up.
