Mariska Hargitay Reacts to the Supreme Court’s Decision to Overturn Roe v. Wade: ‘I am Outraged’

The Supreme Court has voted to overturn Roe v. Wade, so said a leaked draft of the judgment, and people are rightly pissed.

In a bombshell leak shared on Monday amid the Met Gala red-carpet furor, Politico reported that it obtained a draft of the majority decision, which Chief Justice John Roberts later confirmed is authentic.

The decision is not yet in effect. However, since the leak, politicians and civilians alike have expressed their outrage over this violation of human rights—including celebrities. 

Here’s who’s expressed their opinion (a.k.a. rage) over the appalling Supreme Court decision to overturn its own ruling from 1973. 

Mariska Hargitay

Speaking from her experience as the star and executive producer of Law & Order: SVU, a TV show about survivors of sexual assault, Mariska Hargitay wrote on Instagram that she is “outraged at what is unfolding” after the SCOTUS leak.

“The dismantling of nationwide legal abortion will disproportionately affect women of color, women with disabilities, women of modest or no means, trans people, and any person who doesn’t have the ability to travel out of state to obtain healthcare,” she said. “The re-litigation of our rights must end.”
