"Men should not make women’s choices". Billie Eilish has shared her feelings about recent anti-abortion legislation passed in states like Georgia, Ohio, and Alabama.
Billie Eilish has shared her thoughts on the controversial abortion laws recently passed in states like Georgia, Ohio, and Alabama. The 17-year-old singer opened up about her feelings on recent legislation that is rolling back abortion protections for women in some states. Billie told Variety that she is "so mad" about the new laws.
Last week, celebrities like Hayley Williams, Cole Sprouse, and Ariana Grande used their social platforms to highlight the issue, now Billie Eilish has joined the chorus of voices expressing disappointment over this wave of anti-abortion legislation.
“Honestly, I can’t even look at my phone,” Billie told Variety. “I have no words for the bitches in the f**king White House.”
“It’s so unbelievable," Billie continued. "It makes me, like, red. It makes my ears f**king steam out of my head. Women should say, should do and feel and be exactly what they want. There should be nobody else telling them how to live their life, how to do sh*t."
"It just makes me so mad that if I start talking about it, I won’t stop. Men should not make women’s choices — that’s all I have to say.”
Stars like Rihanna, Lili Reinhart and others shared Instagram posts calling out the lawmakers "making decisions for women in America".
The most extreme law signed last week by Alabama governor Kay Ivey would effectively ban abortion in the state WITHOUT an exemption in the case of incest or rape. Abortion was legalised in the United States after the landmark Roe V. Wade Supreme Court decision in 1973.
The ACLU says it plans to sue the state of Alabama to "stop this law from ever taking effect".

Abortion is NOT a crime — it's a constitutional right.
We will sue to stop this law from ever taking effect.
