On Wednesday (1 September), a ban on abortions after six weeks of pregnancy came into effect within the state after the US Supreme Court voted down an emergency request to dam it.
The laws, which is the nation’s most radical abortion regulation, bans terminations as soon as foetal cardiac exercise is detectable, which happens at round six weeks’ gestation and earlier than most girls know they’re pregnant.
This quantities to a near-total ban on abortions and has no provision for victims of rape or incest.
Writing on Instagram Stories on Friday (3 September), Eilish reshared a lot of posts criticising the brand new legal guidelines. She then shared her frustration at seeing few men speaking concerning the ruling.
“I really wish men cared more,” she wrote. “I’m so f***in tired.”
Eilish then added: “Makes me sick how many men say nothing when it comes to women’s rights.”
In addition, the 19-year-old reposted a picture studying: “If you and your ‘homies’ or bros’ aren’t talking about the abortion laws in Texas, chances are you’re part of a problem.”
Other celebrities to speak out against the laws this week have included Reese Witherspoon and Pink.
Lizzo, who grew up in Texas, shared an Instagram Live saying: “You have the right to do what you want to do, but the people who are making laws need to stay the f*** out of people’s bodies’ business.”
