Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Chris Evans and more stars slam Alabama’s abortion bill


Famous faces are outraged over Alabama’s new abortion bill.

On May 15, Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey signed into law the nation’s strictest abortion bill, which makes it a felony for doctors to perform the procedure, even in the case of rape or insest. She said she hopes it ultimately prompts the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade.

While stars take to social media to share their own stories of abortion using the hashtag #YouKnowMe, other high-profile celebrities are voicing their anger for Ivey.

Rihanna shared an Instagram post showcasing 25 white men who were part of the lawmaking decision to pass the legislation.

“Take a look. these are the idiots making decisions for WOMEN in America. Governor Kay Ivey…SHAME ON YOU!!!!” she captioned the shot.

Chelsea Handler also spoke out against the absurd new law. “Of those 25 men who voted to ban abortion in Alabama, I’d like to know how many of them have ever been pregnant. Or have gotten pregnant as a result of rape. I’d like to know how many of those men know exactly what it is like to be a woman. The answer is zero,” the comedian tweeted.
