What did Kyler Murray have to say about the Roe vs Wade decision?

Murray took to Twitter to voice his opinion about the recent Supreme Court decision. The Supreme Court recently overturned Roe vs Wade in an iconic decision. As a result of this decision, the constitutional protection of abortion was reversed and the subject of abortion became a matter for the states to decide, rather than a central law on it.

Murray tweeted in support of the women who would be disadvantaged by the ruling. He wrote, “No one should be able to force their beliefs on anyone’s body, that is not right. Sending love to our women.” His view summed up the majority view in the US. From the widespread protests taking place, it seems like 80% of the US populace does not support the decision.
