Story highlights

After the US Supreme Court shockingly overturned Roe v. Wade ruling, celebrities were quick to share reactions on social media. 

On Friday, the US Supreme Court shockingly overturned Roe v. Wade ruling, which would end the constitutional right to abortion across the country. "The Constitution does not confer a right to abortion; Roe and Casey are overruled, and the authority to regulate abortion is returned to the people and their elected representatives," the court said. After the decision, US Supreme Court has now given rights to individual states and it's on them whether they want to permit or ban the procedure. 

It is expected that out of 50 US states, half would make new laws and will make abortion illegal.

Calling the news devastating for families, Banks wrote ''This is devastating news for families - Men and women - who believe the government should not decide when and with whom they become parents. This is not the end of this fight for human rights.''
