Female Athletes Speak Out Against Potential Roe v. Wade Reversal

A day after Politico disclosed a draft of a U.S. Supreme Court opinion that would reverse the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision allowing abortion rights, several high-profile female athletes spoke out against the proposed change.

Among the dissidents were tennis legend Billie Jean King, WNBA players and Olympians.

Mystics forward Tianna Hawkins, who is the mother of a 6-year-old son, said she cannot fathom the idea of ​​living in a society where people “can’t freely choose what they want to do.”

“I don’t think there’s ever a situation where someone who isn’t yourself should say,‘ Oh, well, you can’t keep your baby, ’or,‘ You should keep your baby, ’or stuff like that… you should have the freedom to do that, ”Hawkins said after a Mystics practice, per The Washington Post.
