Alex wrote: ‘I am absolutely devastated for the people in America who have lost the right to make safe and informed decisions about their own bodies.’

‘I’m terrified. I’m terrified for the people who will now feel they need to take matters into their own hands. The consequences will be heartbreaking,’ she continued.

‘I’m angry, I’m sad and right now I’m in total disbelief that in 2022, Women’s rights are STILL being taken away from them.’

The Supreme Court ended constitutional protections for abortion that have been in place for nearly 50 years by deciding to overturn the landmark 1973 Roe v Wade ruling.

Power has now been handed back to individual states to decide whether or not to permit the procedure.  

Women with unwanted pregnancies in America will now face the choice of traveling to another state where the procedure remains legal and available, buying abortion pills online or having a potentially dangerous illegal abortion.
