Meghan Markle has promised to take her fight for equal rights, as she ultimately expressed disapproval regarding the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v Wade.

Meghan was asked whether she felt the Supreme Court decision was a "canary-in-the-coal-mine moment", she said "absolutely", describing it "feels like the tip of the iceberg" for the future of "same-sex marriage, contraception access, and many fundamental rights to privacy".

"We have to channel that fear into action. We can start this November in the midterms. I know hearing that feels so repetitive, but we have to vote, every time, from local elections to state and national elections." Meghan firmly warned that an abortion ban was already compromising women's health, "It tells us that our physical safety doesn't matter, and as a result that we don't matter. But we do. Women matter." She has pledged to continue her activism "without question."

"Being home [in America], seeing what's happening in our country and feeling energized and motivated, if this is the type of legislation that we need pushed through, then this is a moment that I am absolutely going to show up for," she said. 

Award-winning journalist and founder of the independent media company News Not Noise, Jessica Yellin, called two people she believed could put the matter into perspective, including Gloria Steinem and the Duchess of Sussex. In an interview with Vogue magazine, together with author and activist Steinem and journalist Yellin, Meghan urged men to be "more vocal" with their anger at the repealing of Roe v. Wade. Steinem also shared the story of her own abortion, executed in London, which she said permitted her to live the life she chose.

Meghan has officially joined feminist campaigner Steinham to publicly criticize the decision as endangering women, warning of a "blueprint for reversing rights." Sharing that the reaction to the ruling in her house was "guttural," with the "feminist" Prince Harry also despairing, she firmly believes that it is now essential for legislation enshrining equal rights to be "pushed through." Steinem is considered the face of American feminism, while Meghan is a vocal advocate for paid leave and fair labor rights for women.
