Michelle Obama has expressed her heartbreak over the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v Wade calling it "Horrifying"

Just moments after the Supreme Court’s ruling on Friday eliminated the constitutional right to abortion in the US, the Former First Lady shared a statement that condemned the decision

Michelle Obama says 'channel your frustration and anger into action'

Michelle Obama wrote in a statement Friday that she is "heartbroken" that the U.S. is returning to the "painful lessons of a time before Roe was made law of the land."

The former first lady wrote "So yes, I am heartbroken – for the teenage girl, full of zest and promise, who won't be able to finish school or live the life she wants because her state controls her reproductive decisions; for the mother of a nonviable pregnancy who is now forced to bring that pregnancy to term; for the parents watching their child's future evaporate before their very eyes; for the health care workers who can no longer help them without risking jail time," 

She also shared resources for Planned Parenthood and The United State of Women Reproductive Justice Hub. 

She concluded saying- "Our hearts may be broken today, but tomorrow, we've got to get up and find the courage to keep working towards creating the more just America we all deserve"

"We have so much left to push for, to rally for, to speak for – and I know we can do this together."

Taylor Swift reposted Michelle's speech on Twitter, adding that she is "absolutely terrified that this is where we are – that after so many decades of people fighting for women's rights to their own bodies, today's decision has stripped us of that."

"From giving people the right to carry guns to taking away women's rights of autonomy over their own bodies. We weren’t being reactive we saw it coming."
