Hollywood celebrities were inconsolable Friday following the announcement of the Supreme Court’s highly anticipated ruling on abortion. The Left-wing stars expressed their expletive-filled outrage and fury, directing their anger at the high court’s decision overturning Roe v. Wade.
Stars including Seth MacFarlane, Bette Midler, Michael Moore, Alyssa Milano and CBS’ Two and a Half Men star Jon Cryer publicized their emotional meltdowns.
“How dare they,” Bette Midler demanded.
“Not too long ago, this would have been dyrstopian sci-fi,” Seth MacFarlane despaired.
“Banning abortion is about controlling women and trans men.,” Alyssa Milano bizarrely tweeted, adding that that the court’s decision is also about upholding “white supremacy.”
Singer-songwriter Matt Nathanson even wondered, “How can we overturn the Supreme Court?”
On Friday, the Supreme Court released its 5-4 decision on Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, weeks after a draft version of the decision was leaked to the media, resulting in violent attacks on pro-life centers and angry protests outside the homes of conservative justices.
“Abortion presents a profound moral question. The Constitution does not prohibit the citizens of each State from regulating or prohibiting abortion. Roe and Casey arrogated that authority,” Justice Samuel Alito wrote in the court’s decision.
“We now overrule those decisions and return the authority to the people and their elected representatives.”
Fox’s Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane compared the court’s decision to “dystopian sci-fi.”
Not too long ago, this would have been dystopian sci-fi. But the legacy of the 2016 election and the indelible mark of the GOP is printed here in black and white. How much farther this will go once again depends on American voters. Blame extremism or apathy, but this is America: pic.twitter.com/WefAworLlW

Disney’s Hocus Pocus 2 star Bette Midler raged: “They did it. THEY DID IT TO US!”
They did it. THEY DID IT TO US! #SCOTUS has overturned #RoevWade, enshrined in the Constitution as settled law for over 50 years. How dare they? This #SCOTUS is absolutely tone-deaf to the will and even the actual needs of the American people. #WakeUpAmerica

Alyssa Milano bizarrely claimed that the ruling is all about “controlling women and trans men.” She also likened the decision to “white supremacy.”
Banning abortion is about controlling women and trans men.
