Stranger Things star Maya Hawke who plays robin in the show, recently during her visit to The Tonight Show, she didn’t hold back as she discussed her family history with abortion in light of the Supreme Court’s recent decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.
On the show, the Stranger Things star Hawke explained that she and Thurman ended up discussing Washington Post op-ed that Thurman wrote in September 2021 about abortion the actress described having had in her late teens.
Maya Hawke Screams ‘F**k The Supreme Court’
“We just got into talking about the Supreme Court ruling and this essay that my mom wrote a couple of months ago when they were putting these further restrictions on abortion access, and it was sort of preceding this whole thing,” Hawke, 23, recalled. “My mom wrote this really beautiful essay about her abortion that she got when she was really young, and about how if she hadn’t have had it, she wouldn’t have become the person that she’d become, and I wouldn’t exist, and how both of my parents lives would’ve been totally derailed if she hadn’t had access to safe and legal health care — fundamental health care.”
In continuation to her statement she said :“Of course, wealthy people will always be able to get abortions, but so many people, because of this ruling this week, will not only not be able to pursue their dreams, but actually lose their lives and be unsafe. And I just wanted to say that, like, f**k the Supreme Court.”
