Hollywood Legend James Woods took to Twitter to rip California Governor Gavin Newsom over his statement on abortion.
Woods, an outspoken conservative celebrity actor, was responding to a previous message posted by Governor Newsom.
Newsom had tweeted a response to the decision of the Supreme Court to reverse Roe v Wade, ending abortion’s protected status as a constitutional right.
“A dark day in America,” declared the Governor of California. “This is a dangerous decision from a court hell bent on pushing a radical ideological agenda and infringing on the rights of states to protect our citizens from being gunned down in our streets, schools, and churches. Shameful.”
James Woods, best known for starring roles in films like Once Upon a Time in America and Hercules, wasted no time in blasting the claims from Newsom. He specifically called out Newsom for calling the Bill of Rights, which reserves rights not included in the constitution or decided in Congress for states to determine, a “radical ideological agenda”.
“The “radial ideological agenda” to which you refer used to be called the Bill of Rights, back when schools actually taught history,” Woods tweeted to his 2.5 million followers.
Last week the US Supreme Court ruled 5-to-4 to reverse the decades old abortion rights ruling, paving the way for individual states to ban abortion. While this is expected to affect abortion access in a significant number of states, it does not ban states from allowing abortion or making their own rules around it.
Do you agree with James Woods and the Supreme Court that their ruling on Roe V Wade was correct regardless of your stance on abortion? How far do you think the Left is willing to take this fight?
