"Independence Day, unless you have a uterus."

Celebrities like Kim Kardashian have “canceled” celebrating the 4th of July holiday over the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.

On Monday various celebrities pointed out the “shortage” of independence on Independence Day after women were stripped of sovereignty over their own bodies by the highest court in the nation.

Kim, her mother Kris Jenner, and many others online shared a post by @bitton that read: “4th of July has been canceled due to a shortage of Independence. Sincerely, Women”.
