After a pro-life law took effect in Texas banning abortions after a baby’s heartbeat is detected in the womb, the singer Cher had a massive freakout on social media.
“BAREFOOT & PREGNANT, WOMEN AT THE MERCY OF TYRANTS !! WOMEN WILL DIE FROM BACK ALLEY ABORTIONS, SAME AS BEFORE ROE V WADE !! POOR WOMEN WILL BE HIT THE HARDEST !! CAREERS VANISH !! SEXISM, RACISM, trumpism, CULTISM, FASCISM, TERRORISM,” declared Cher in her all-caps Twitter rant. “DEMOCRACY WILL WITHER & DIE, & DICTATORS WILL THRIVE.”

Last week, Cher faced backlash from her followers after wondering “when Texas will start mandating Burqas,” It was another one of her reactions to the state’s “heartbeat” law, which bans most abortions after six weeks of pregnancy.
“Wondering When Texas Senate Will Start Mandating Burqa’s⁉️” Cher tweeted, trivializing the barbaric oppression women in Muslim majority nations face and comparing it to a law that sets out to protect the unborn. “IF Texas IS Going 2 Take Women’s Rights Away THEY SHOULD AT LEAST FURNISH STATE AUTHORIZED UNIFORMS. WONT [be] LONG, TILL Texas OFFERS ‘HANDMAID’S TALE’ JEWELRY ON LINE. [Be] 1st. ON UR BLOCK 2 GET NEW ‘SHUT MY MOUTH’ LIP RINGS.”

The pop star was quickly called out by her followers, who accused her of engaging in “Islamophobic rhetoric” by criticizing the Burqa.
“OK !! IM NOT ISLAMOPHOIC !! I WANT WOMEN 2 HAVE THE FREEDOM 2 CHOOSE !!” Cher responded to one critic, doubling down on her previous comments which likened the burqa to a law that protects a baby from being killed.
