Uma Thurman who recently wrote about her experience while dealing with abortion as a teenager hopes that by telling her story, she can give hope to young girls who are still ashamed of their sexuality.
According to the actress, Texas’ abortion law is unconstitutional “another discriminatory tool used against economically disadvantaged people and, in many cases, against their partners’ Women and children from wealthy families continue to have all of the world’s opportunities and face few risks,” she stated.
This law makes abortion after the sixth week of pregnancy illegal, even in cases of incest or rape. This law, which was upheld by the Supreme Court on the night of Wednesday, September 1 to Thursday, September 2, was described as “radical” by US President Joe Biden.
“It is a flagrant violation of the constitutional right recognized in Roe v. Wade,” he says, referring to the 1973 Supreme Court decision that guaranteed abortion rights in all U.S. states. It “is so extreme that it does not provide an exception in cases of rape or incest,” slammed the White House occupant.
So Uma Thurman wishes to address all women, particularly those who will no longer be able to obtain free abortion assistance as of tomorrow.
“To all of you – to the women and girls of Texas who are afraid of being traumatized and hunted down by predatory bounty hunters; to all women who are outraged that the state has taken away our right to our bodies; and to all of you who are made vulnerable because you have a uterus – I say: I see you. Be courageous. You are stunning. You make me think of my daughters.”
