Joe Burrow Slams Supreme Court’s Abortion Decision

Many prominent athletes across the sports world have been voicing their frustration after the Supreme Court overturned Roe V. Wade last week, thus halting the nation-wide precedent for abortions to be legalized. And on Monday, Joe Burrow joined the masses speaking out.

The Bengals QB took to social media to slam the Supreme Court.

“I’m not pro-murdering babies,” he said. 

“I’m pro-Becky who found out at her 20 week anatomy scan that the infant she had been so excited to bring into this world had developed without life sustaining organs.

“I’m pro-Susan who was sexually assaulted on her way home from work, only to come to the horrific realization that her assailant planted his seed in her when she got a positive pregnancy test result a month later.

“I’m pro-Theresa who hemorrhaged due to a placental abruption, causing her parents, spouse, and children to have to make the impossible decision on whether to save her or her unborn child. 

“I’m pro-little Cathy who had her innocence ripped away from her by someone she should have been able to trust and her 11 year old body isn’t mature enough to bear the consequence of the betrayal.”

Last week, LeBron James joined Joe Burrow’s abortion sentiment, claiming this was about something much larger than one law.

“It’s ABSOLUTELY ABOUT POWER & CONTROL!!” he wrote in response to a tweet.

All throughout the weekend, there have been protests and distrust following the Supreme Court’s ruling. But good for people like Joe Burrow and LeBron James who have decided to use their platform to speak out against something they believe is wrong.
I wouldn’t expect the outrage to die down any time soon…
