Bengals and former LSU QB Joe Burrow share pro-choice stance online
(WVUE) — Following last week’s landmark Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, voices from the crowd have emerged on both sides of the debate.
Cincinnati Bengals quarterback and former LSU national champion Joe Burrow weighed in to show his support for women’s reproductive rights with a “pro-choice” stance.
Burrow’s post appeared on her Instagram Story on Monday, June 27.
The post shared by Burrow is a popular meme shared in pro-choice circles that explains the view that women supporting Roe see the issue as a health care issue and that the position is not “pro-murder.” of babies. With no federal protections for abortion, leaving the matter to individual states, many fear that the recent Supreme Court ruling could open the door to extremely restrictive abortion laws, including those without exceptions for cases related to rape or incest.
Those who support Roe’s reversal argue that leaving the matter to states’ rights grants more freedom on a case-by-case basis, or that it reduces federal government oversight over individual state affairs.
