Rihanna took to Instagram on Thursday (May 16th) to call out Alabama’s governor, Kay Ivey, for signing the abortion ban. According to Rap-Up, Governor Ivey signed the Alabama Human Life Protection Act into law, which prohibits women in Alabama from having an abortion after six weeks into their pregnancy. However, at that time many don’t even know they are pregnant. Also, the bill says that any doctor who performs an abortion in the state will face a minimum of 10 years in prison and a maximum of 99 to life.
Rih wrote on social media, “Take a look. these are the idiots making decisions for WOMEN in America. Governor Kay Ivey…SHAME ON YOU!!!!”
Other celebs such as Diddy, John Legend and Janelle Monae have also spoken out against the ban.
