New US abortion law
Celebrities cancel Independence Day
“Cancelled for lack of independence”: Many stars protested the US abortion ruling on July 4th.
In June, the US Supreme Court overturned the previous national right to abortion. The decision triggered a political earthquake. Numerous citizens, including many celebrities, were appalled. And also on “Independence Day”, the national holiday of the United States, which is celebrated every year on July 4th, many stars expressed criticism.
Reality TV personalities Kim Kardashian, 41, and Kris Jenner, 66, along with other celebrities, summarily “cancelled” July 4th this year in light of the Supreme Court’s recent decision to reverse the 1973 landmark Roe v. Wade decision . Many other stars also took to social media to address the disconnect between Independence Day and the lack of independence women have after making controversial decisions about their own bodies.
