Kimberly Elise Comes Out in Support of Roe v. Wade Being Overturned

The ‘For Colored Girls’ actor ignited the internet with her response, but has yet to comment on the fallout.

Kimberly Elise has recently joined in the wide range of comments in favor of the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.

On Tuesday, June 28, the For Colored Girls actor took to Instagram to post an image of a sleeping baby along with the caption, “Millions of babies will be saved from death by abortion due to the overturning of Roe V. Wade. Hallelujah! #allglorybetoGod,” next to a series of emojis, including babies and celebratory hands.

Her comments arrive just a few days after the court’s ruling ended the nearly 50-year-old legal precedent that protected aborting rights, giving states the green light to significantly limit access to reproductive health care. 

Elise’s post quotes Psalm 139:13-14, “For you formed my inward parts; You knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are Your works; my soul knows it very well,” the scripture reads.

In related news, The View co-host Sunny Hostin recently said she disagreed with the Supreme Court ruling, but that she opposes all forms of abortion without “any exception.”

“It’s because I’m Catholic and that’s my faith,” Hostin said on Monday during the talk show. “This has always been a very difficult discussion for me. But what is not difficult for me is the fact that this is an activist Supreme Court and they should not be deciding the law based on their faith.”

Meanwhile, Elise, who will be next seen in HeadShop with Nicole Ari Parker, has not responded to the fallout from her commentary.
