While appearing on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday night, Stranger Things star Maya Hawke addressed the Supreme Court ruling last week which overturned the constitutional right of access to abortion. The remarks came up during the interview segment where the actor was promoting the upcoming Stranger Things 4 volume 2 dropping Friday, July 1 on Netflix.

Maya Hawke joins the growing number of public figures who have shared very passionate reactions to the ruling and has motivated birthing people to demand action. Read and watch Maya Hawke’s comments below.

“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,” “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.”

“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, fuck the Supreme Court.”
