Stars denounce Texas’s strict abortion laws

Hollywood stars like Reese Witherspoon and Kerry Washgington are calling for a fight for self-determination in the USA because of an extreme abortion law and the decision of the Supreme Court to do so.

Los Angeles – Dozens of Hollywood stars and artists, including Academy Award winners Reese Witherspoon, 45, and Rita Moreno, 89, are storming Texas’s tough new abortion law.

“I stand behind the women of Texas who have the constitutional right to decide about their health and their bodies,” wrote Witherspoon on Twitter on Thursday. She linked a call by the family planning organization “Planned Parenthood”, which calls for resistance with a petition.

US singer Pink warned on Twitter that the “extreme” ban on abortion in Texas will serve as a blueprint for similar laws in other states if nothing is done about it. Actress Kerry Washington called for the struggle for self-determination and free planning for the next generation. Amy Schumer, Eva Longoria, Bella Hadid, Dua Lipa, Elizabeth Banks and many other celebrities also supported the action.

The US Supreme Court rejected an urgent motion against the Texas law. The law, which went into effect on Wednesday, prohibits abortions once the fetus’s heartbeat has been detected. This can be the case as early as the sixth week of pregnancy. Many women do not yet know that they are pregnant at this point. Exceptions are only allowed in medical emergencies. dpa
