Obama has come unhinged!

After learning about Roe v. Wade being overturned this morning, Former President Barack Obama lashed out at the Supreme Court over the ruling.

According to Fox, Obama lashed out at the Supreme Court and said, “Today, the Supreme Court not only reversed nearly 50 years of precedent, it relegated the most intensely personal decision someone can make to the whims of politicians and ideologues—attacking the essential freedoms of millions of Americans.”

“For more than a month, we’ve known this day was coming—but that doesn’t make it any less devastating,” Obama added.

This isn’t the first time Obama has spoken about the overturning of Roe, after learning about the leaked draft of the opinion on May 2nd, Barack and Michelle Obama said in a joint statement, “Few, if any, women make the decision to terminate a pregnancy casually — and people of goodwill.”

“But what Roe recognized is that the freedom enshrined in the Fourteenth Amendment of the Constitution requires all of us to enjoy a sphere of our lives that isn’t subject to meddling from the state — a sphere that includes personal decisions involving who we sleep with, who we marry, whether or not to use contraception, and whether or not to bear children,” the Obama’s added.
