The overturning of Roe v. Wade last week has shaken people around the U.S. to their core, with protests breaking out across the country in response to the Supreme Court decision. Since the news broke, public figures have spoken out, loudly and with rage, and so have many celebrities.

Here's what people in the entertainment industry have had to say about the legal move that will make access to abortion so much more dangerous for millions of people with wombs.

Sophie Turner

A visibly emotional Sophie Turner expressed exactly how she felt about the decision to overturn Roe via Instagram Stories. "Overturning Roe v. Wade is setting us back 50 years," she said.

"This isn't going to save any lives. It's going to kill and endanger millions of women who are gonna end up getting backstreet abortions, dangerous backstreet abortions, and end up dying from it.

"If this was actually about saving lives, if anyone cared about saving lives, then after any of the mass shooting that have happened here in the United States, we would have gun control. It's not about saving lives, it's about controlling a woman's body and controlling a woman's right to choose. And it's absolutely f***ing disgusting."
