Ziggy Marley, the first son of Reggae legend, Bob Marley, is standing in solidarity for women’s rights following the United States Supreme Court’s ruling to overturn abortion rights.
On Instagram, Ziggy Marley shared a pic of the female reproductive system that he captioned, in part, “States rights huh! What about a woman’s universal right?”
He continued, in part, “She must do what the state tells her to, no matter the price or consequences she has to pay? Wow! Holy dictatorship. Talk about Talibanistic aspirations.”
Under the post shared with his over 1.3 million followers, many women and men in the comment section lauded Ziggy Marley for lending his voice and standing up for women’s rights.
Since Friday’s ruling, at least 10 states have effectively banned abortion, and 26 states have laws indicating they could outlaw or set extreme limits on abortions.
The U.S. Supreme Court’s decision Friday (June 24) to end constitutional protections for abortion was met with celebration and anger, as crowds continue to gather in cities like Washington, New York, Atlanta, and Los Angeles.
The ruling signifies an end to a half-century guarantee of federal constitutional protection of abortion rights and allow each state to decide whether to restrict or ban abortion.
