Madonna opens up about 'terrifying news' – 'I'm scared for my daughters'

The singer has four daughters

Madonna is a proud mother to four daughters, Lourdes, 25, Mercy James, 16, and nine-year-old twins Estere and Stella, so she was no doubt shocked to hear that the Roe v Wade case, which granted women in the US the right to terminate a pregnancy, was overturned last week.
