    Reposted from @liberaljane ⚡️Breaking: The U.S. Supreme Court has overturned Roe v. Wade, which means abortion legality will go back to the states. I am devastated, angry and sad.

    Today’s ruling will have deadly consequences, with the harm falling hardest on Black women and other people of color who already face disproportionate discrimination in our country.

    No matter what, abortion is unstoppable.
