Just 16 Tweets Summing Up The Hellscape Of A Post-Roe World

“That’s a wrap on the United States.”

Abortion-rights activists chant during a rally in front of the Supreme Court

On Friday, the Supreme Court made the landmark decision to end Americans’ constitutional right to abortion and overturn Roe v. Wade, and millions across the country are furious. 

The ruling triggered immediate bans on abortions in 13 states, and another 13 are expected to several limit or ban abortion. 

Plus, in an opinion written by Justice Clarence Thomas in support of the decision — and raised with concern in the dissent written by three liberal justices — legal protections around marriage for same-sex couples and contraception are now possibly at risk. 

On Twitter, thousands shared their grief and anger at the decision, and what it could mean for their bodily autonomy:

It’s OK to mourn today and fight tomorrow. You deserve your anger, grief, and fear, but remember the power will always be with the people.

Absolutely gutted for my sisters in the states. Abortion bans are an attack on all women, but that disproportionately impact women who are poor, women of colour, and women trapped in abusive relationships. Abortion bans are barbarism.

a chilling line from the joint dissent -- Kagan, Breyer, & Sotomayor do not believe this Court will stop with Roe.
