On Wednesday, actress Reese Witherspoon went outside of “character,” (pardon the pun) and used her social media to verbally attack states that have passed legislation designed to criminalize women who seek abortion once a heartbeat is detected in the womb.
Witherspoon tweeted: “I’m beyond upset about the passing of new abortion bans in Alabama, Kentucky, Mississippi, Georgia, and Ohio,” the Big Little Lies star said. “This is Unconstitutional and Abhorrent. We can not tolerate this attack on women’s fundamental rights.”

Bless her heart, isn’t she special. But no Reese, this is the grown up section. I know your PR department wrote your tweet. Romper Room’s message board is another section!
If a woman wants abortions legal so they can exercise “control” over their bodies, why would there ever be such a thing as an “unwanted” pregnancy?
There is nothing in the US Constitution that uses the word “abortion” or delegates power to the United States Government to regulate the practice of Medicine. These are powers reserved by the States to themselves. There is nothing unconstitutional about Alabama’s new law.
If anything, Roe v Wade is unconstitutional as it was never voted on by “We the People.” It is a Supreme Court ruling. an opinion and only an opinion, It is not a law. Roe v Wade took a state’s rights issue and tried to make it a federal issue. Alabama’s law, if it goes to the Supremes will get Roe v Wade overturned and turned back into a state’s rights matter. People in Hollyweird shouldn’t use big words or concepts they don’t understand.
I believe that life begins at conception, but If people are declared dead when there is no pulse, it would be logically consistent to believe that life begins when the heart starts beating.
Liberals scream about any restrictions on abortion and claim that it’s unconstitutional, which it is not. And yet at the same time, they rant endlessly about gun control, which *is* unconstitutional. Their understanding of the constitution is as shaky as their understanding of everything else in life.
“Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness” is a well-known phrase in the United States Declaration of Independence. The phrase gives three examples of the “unalienable rights” which the Declaration says have been given to all humans by their creator, and which governments are created to protect.
Without life, the other two don’t matter.
