After the Roe v. Wade verdict, Busy Philipps couldn’t control her tears

Numerous celebrities, like Busy Philipps, have spoken out in response to the Supreme Court’s decision on Friday to reverse the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that granted every women the right to an abortion in each and every state.

The news hits just around Philipps’ 43rd birthday on Saturday. The actress wrote on her Instagram Story about how she was feeling. She wrote, “I couldn’t do it yesterday but it’s my birthday so even though I woke up crying, I’m making myself move,” alongside a video of her exercising. “Because I won’t stop. We can’t stop,” she added.

After Friday’s verdict, Philipps earlier joined protesters urging pro-choice legislation on the streets of New York City. She then wrote “I have no words” in an Instagram post.

“This is total devastation,” Philipps continued. “See you tonight New York and I hope you show the f— up wherever you live. #abortionisahumanright #abortion #f—thesupremecourt.”

Philipps has previously spoken out against legalizing abortions, as evidenced by her posts over the weekend.

The mother of two confessed during a 2019 edition of her talk show series Busy Tonight how she experienced an abortion previously after Georgia governor Brian Kemp passed a bill outlawing abortions after 6 weeks of pregnancy.

“I have a thing that I would like to say,” she began at the time. “I hope that whatever it is that you believe personally that maybe you’ll be open to hearing what I’m saying.”

“I know that people feel very strongly about abortion, but let me just say this. Women and their doctors are in the best position to make informed decisions about what is best for them,” Philipps said, as the audience cheered. “Nobody else. Nobody.”

“Here is the reality,” she continued. “No bill that criminalizes abortion will stop anyone from making this incredibly personal choice, but these laws will put more women at risk. Every woman deserves compassion and care, not judgment and interference when it comes to their own bodies.”

Philipps continued by sharing with the crowd her life story.
