    24 Furious Tweets About The Supreme Court Overturning Roe V. Wade That Are Just As Biting As They Are Insightful

    Maybe the real problem dates all the way back to 1788.

    In the aftermath of the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade, people on Twitter are understandably irate that six justices can govern half the nation's bodies based on religious doctrine. They're calling out political hypocrisy and the the government's long history of mistreating people with uteruses — especially since this decision will further marginalize millions of already vulnerable people.

    if you’re saying abortion should ONLY happen if a woman is raped or abused, you’re basically saying that she has to be violated FIRST to have access to a basic human right.

    1. No should be forced to birth a baby. 2. Adoption is not an alternative to abortion. 3. Adoption does not guarantee a healthy upbringing. Bad parents are bad parents, whether they are bio or adoptive. 4. Adoption ALWAYS comes with trauma that most people aren't ready for.

    I am the “innocent child” pro-lifers love to slap on posters/use to bolster arguments. My mother gave me up for adoption after being unable to access abortion. She was poor, homeless. There was no parenting help. I received a life of pain+abuse. I would’ve rather been aborted.🧵

    I take methotrexate to control my Rhumatoid. I was told today I could not be prescribed it any longer as I am viably fertile and it is a medication that can be used for abortion.

    I’ve said it once, and I’ll say it a thousand times: The treatment for an ectopic pregnancy, a septic uterus, or a miscarriage that your body won’t release is abortion. If you can’t get those abortions, you die. You. Die.

    Countless tweets are calling out the anti-abortion government's hypocrisy.


    Your son made me take plan b after we hooked up but carry on

    “pro life” but no baby formula on the shelves? yeah okay.

    So child support will start at conception right? Social security numbers will be assigned? Women can claim fetuses as dependents on their taxes? Right?

    Twitter: @Ally_Sammarco


    So, to sum up the Supreme Court’s week: life begins at conception and ends in a mass shooting.

    the supreme court: “just use the democratic process” also the supreme court:

    Others are positing that maybe the real problem dates back to 1788.


    has anyone considered that maybe the constitution is bad

    Twitter: @lyzl


    Making abortion a felony when most states don’t allow felons to vote is effectively reversing the 19th Amendment.

    "The Founding Fathers wouldn’t stand for this!" The founding fathers if they were alive today : YOU FREED THE WHAT?!!

    Twitter: @JamaicanJihadi


    the founding fathers would be like what do you mean there are catholics on the supreme court

    me and my friends would’ve beat the founding fathers with hammers i can tell you that much

    Many people are lamenting all the ways marginalized groups have been let down over the years.


    In Jewish law, an abortion is not only recommended but REQUIRED should a pregnancy endanger the health or life of the individual that's pregnant. This is also a religious freedom issue

    i am seriously begging y'all to uplift the voices of trans and gendernonconforming individuals as we speak about the overturning of roe v. wade. this is not an issue that only affects women.

    Twitter: @bIackcello


    “They won’t stop with Roe” They didn’t start with it either, you just didn’t consider anti-trans mobilization a legitimate attack on human rights.

    Twitter: @alaskastardust

    There's some room for hope, though, as long as people fight for what's right.


    Overturning Roe and outlawing abortions will never make them go away. It only makes them more dangerous, especially for the poor + marginalized. People will die because of this decision. And we will never stop until abortion rights are restored in the United States of America.

    Just putting this out there again as a reminder to USPS employees in any of the 13 states that just banned abortion and/or emergency contraceptive: You are explicitly *NOT ALLOWED* to comply with civilian police attempting to search your vehicle at any time.

    Seeing a depressing amount of US physicians tweeting versions of "Now I have to watch women die." No, you don't. Canada views abortion as healthcare because Dr Morgentaler, a Holocaust survivor, ignored the law, performed abortions anyway & dared the government to stop him.

    Twitter: @JulieSLalonde

    But while most progress is achieved through protest and civil disobedience, remember to watch what you say and how you organize!


    y’all better be careful with what you’re tweeting rn bc homeland security WILL turn up to your house. im saying this from personal experience FKSKKDKSKS
