David Lee Roth Mocks Texas Abortion Law As He Poses With Three Pregnant Women
David Lee Roth, known for posting interesting content on his social media, recently tweeted a new artwork on his Twitter account, featuring himself with three pregnant women smoking and drinking alcohol. The photo had the American flag as a background and wrote ‘Texas,’ which was interpreted by fans as a mockery of the recent abortion law in the state.
The most strict abortion law in the country has been issued in Texas starting from September 1, 2021. The law states that no woman can have an abortion after six weeks of pregnancy, after hearing the fetus’ cardiac rhythm. There was a lot of uprising and protest within the state since most women don’t realize they are pregnant until at least eight weeks.
Thus, this law was considered absurd, against human rights, and an attack on women. The saddest aspect of this law was that it didn’t take cases like rape and incests into consideration. Many celebrities, including musicians, have reacted to this law and stated that they are against it.
One of them was Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Flea, who argued that women should have the right to make their own decisions about their bodies. He shared the stories of women finding out they were pregnant between 7 to 21 weeks and had to have an abortion due to various circumstances.
Van Halen’s David Lee Roth recently posted a photo on Twitter and touched upon this sensitive topic. The photo featured the musician and three pregnant women consuming alcohol and holding cigarettes in their hands. The singer also made this post his cover photo on Twitter without making any statements.
Although this confused his fans about his stand on the abortion law, it can be interpreted as mocking the controversial law. Since those who prefer not to have a child will have to give birth if they get pregnant, this will result in many unfortunate circumstances, such as unresponsible parenting, as reflected in the photo.
