Bette Midler Calls for a Ban on Viagra Following SCOTUS Ruling

Share

Actress Bette Midler invoked Viagra into her reaction to the Supreme Court’s ruling on Roe v. Wade.

Earlier this week, Midler tweeted, “Time to ban Viagra.”

She added, “Because if pregnancy is ‘God’s will’, then so is your limp d***.”

Midler posted an earlier reaction to the ruling, saying, “They did it. THEY DID IT TO US! [SCOTUS] has overturned [Roe v Wade], enshrined in the Constitution as settled law for over 50 years.”

She added, “How dare they? This [SCOTUS] is absolutely tone-deaf to the will and even the actual needs of the American people. [Wake Up America].”

Additionally, Midler issued a warning to the LGBTQ community.

“GET READY, GAYS. YOU’RE NEXT,” Midler tweeted.

She appeared to be referring to Justice Clarence Thomas’ concurring opinion suggesting the Supreme Court “should reconsider” its past rulings on contraception access, same-sex relationships and same-sex marriage.

While delivering remarks after the decision was released, President Joe Biden said with his concurring opinion Thomas “explicitly called to reconsider the right of marriage equality [and] the right of couples to make their choices on contraception.”

He added, “This [is an] extreme and dangerous path the court is now taking us on.”

Midler made headlines recently after she received criticism over her take on the baby formula shortage.

“TRY BREASTFEEEDING! It’s free and available on demand,” Midler tweeted last month.

Ilyse Hogue, president of the social impact organization Purpose, issued a response to the tweet.

“Bette, respectfully, this is a very bad take. I had twins. I didn’t produce enough milk for both. Without formula, I would have had to have chosen which one got to eat. To say nothing of kids that get separated from the birth mothers very young,” she tweeted.
