Mariah Carey Explains Roe v. Wade To Her Daughter

On Friday (6.24,) after the United States Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 case that protected a woman’s choice to have an abortion, Mariah Carey can’t help but think about the future for her 11-year-old daughter Monroe.

Taking to social media, the superstar singer/songwriter tweeted “It is truly unfathomable and disheartening to have to try to explain to my 11 year old daughter why we live in a world where women’s rights are disintegrating in front of our eyes.

Given the new ruling, individual states can now decide what a woman can do with her body. It’s expected that abortion will soon be illegal in at least 16 states moving forward and according to CNN. at least 21 states have laws or constitutional amendments already in place in an attempt to ban abortions.

The vote was 5-4 in favor of overturning Roe and Justice Samuel Alito wrote in his majority opinion “Roe was egregiously wrong from the start,” “Its reasoning was exceptionally weak, and the decision has had damaging consequences. And far from bringing about a national settlement of the abortion issue, Roe and Casey have enflamed debate and deepened division.”
