VSeveral American sports stars have been highly critical of the US Supreme Court’s repeal of abortion.
the former Billie Jean King is one of those who spoke of a historical setback for American women. “It’s a sad day in the United States,” the 12-time Grand Slam winner said on her social media. “It will not end abortion, it will end healthy and legal access to this vital medical intervention.”
Soccer player Megan Rapinoe also spent many minutes at a press conference giving her opinion on the Supreme Court’s decision. “We know that the abortion ban does not prevent abortions, but it prevents safe abortions. I cannot describe the sadness and cruelty of this, I think cruelty is the key point, because this is not being pro-life “, Said the footballer.

“This will disproportionately affect poor women, African-American women, immigrant women, women in violent relationships, women who have been raped, women and girls who have been raped by members of their own families, or maybe just haven’t taken the better decisions,” Rapinoe declared after the repeal of abortion.
For his part, NBA star LeBron James spoke on his networks about this decision: “It’s absolutely about power and control,” he said in response to the news about the repeal.
Also the tennis player Coco Gauff, number 12 in the world, published that she was “incredibly disappointed by the decision made today. The sad part is that this will not prevent abortions from happening … it will only increase illegal and unsafe abortions. Today is a very sad for our country and I can’t believe that once again history repeats itself.
I am incredibly disappointed in the decision made today
