Actress Amy Schumer ranted against pro-life efforts to protect unborn babies from abortion this week, calling it “f—ing sick” that Roe v. Wade may be overturned.
An actress/comedian and cousin of Democrat Senate leader Chuck Schumer, she lashed out after the U.S. Supreme Court heard a major abortion case out of Mississippi last week, according to Yahoo News. The case could result in Roe being overturned so that states may protect unborn babies from abortion again.
“Fight, fight, fight,” Schumer responded on Instagram.
She shared a video of an older woman wearing a pin with the image of a coat hanger on it, a symbol of back alley abortions.
“She had this pin before Roe v. Wade,” Schumer wrote. “She said she never thought she’d have to take it out again.”
The actress went on to question what would happen if abortions become illegal and “white privileged sons get a girl pregnant,” her assumption being that aborting the unborn baby is the solution, rather than the young man and young woman taking responsibility for their child.
Later, Schumer implied that women need to be able to abort their own children to succeed, writing, “Are girls going to only apply for colleges on states where they will have access to reproductive rights?”

“This is why I got arrested to try and stop Kavanaugh confirmation while I was pregnant,” she continued, referring to the confirmation of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. “This is f—ing sick. Fight fight fight.”
Schumer is well known for her abortion advocacy. In October during the Women’s March, she claimed that “women can’t be free” without the legal right to abort their unborn babies.
But millions of women disprove this notion. In amicus briefs to the Supreme Court, hundreds of women scholars and professionals told the justices that women do not need to abort their own unborn babies to succeed. Hundreds more told the high court how they regret aborting their unborn babies and how their abortions hurt them, too. And since Roe, tens of millions of unborn baby girls were denied basic human rights when they were aborted.
Pro-life advocates hope the Supreme Court will overturn Roe v. Wade in their ruling on the Mississippi case.
If they do, states would be allowed to protect unborn babies from abortion again, possibly from the moment of conception or at least after the first trimester, and groups estimate anywhere from a dozen to two dozen states would do so. As a result, hundreds of thousands of babies could be spared from violent abortion deaths every year across America.
The Supreme Court is expected to publish its ruling on the Mississippi case sometime next year, potentially June 2022.
