“Happy ‘Independence Day’ from me and my reproductive rights,” she wrote sarcastically in the post.
Activist Jameela Jamil also weighed in and spoke strong words on her various social media platforms.

Stoner shared the post on her Instagram Stories, adding: “Anyone else find it hard to tap into the ‘holiday’ spirit when this is the reality for us?”
