CELEBRITY Female health

On June 24, 2022, the Supreme Court decided to officially overturn the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling that once guaranteed the right to abortion in the United States. The consequence of the court's 6-3 conservative majority now means that many states have now banned or restricted access to safe abortions, putting the lives of so many women at risk. This sparked a wave of celebrities to speak out about their personal experiences in an attempt to destigmatize abortion and turn the tide of conservatism restricting women's healthcare. 

A similar attack on women's rights occurred back in May 2019, when the Alabama Senate voted to pass a bill that would outlaw almost all abortions in the state. Numerous female celebrities came forward with their abortion experiences. Actress and TV host Busy Philipps was the most outspoken voice at the time, and since then thousands of women posted in support of the #YouKnowMe campaign, recounting their experiences with abortion.
