Many people in America were stunned by the US Supreme Court's decision to overturn the Roe v Wade court ruling on Friday. The decision essentially meant that states were now allowed to ban abortions moving forward. It was a divisive decision that saw a lot of negative reactions from some US citizens, including NFL stars.

After the decision was made official, NFL stars immediately let their thoughts be known on the topic. Kyler Murray, the quarterback of the Arizona Cardinals, expressed his disappointment at the court's decision.

Darius Slay, one of the most underrated cornerbacks in the NFL, dryly commented that abortion was banned first before guns.

Cam Jordan also talked about the injustice of this decision, pointing out that no one should be controlled to that extent by anyone.

Bobby Wagner, on the other hand, retweeted former US president Barack Obama's Tweet about the Roe v Wade decision.

Other NFL stars chimed in on the matter, expressing their own views on the topic.

Most of the NFL stars that spoke out against the overturning of Roe v Wade had one key criticism of the decision. Their issue mostly stems from the fact that the state is suddenly taking control of women's bodies by refusing to give them the right to abortion. There are many reasons why a woman would want to abort their baby: unwanted pregnancy due to rape and health complications are two of those factors.

NFL players aren't the only ones that chimed in on the controversial Roe vs Wade decision. LeBron James was among the many NBA stars who also spoke out against the decision, echoing many of their football brethren's thoughts on the matter.
