She captioned the post: "A message from me: I absolutely believe that adoption is a wonderful wonderful thing. There are so many children who deserve good homes who, through adoption, will be able to find them. With that being said, I cannot attend in good conscience an event in a pro-life state and pro-life platform."

While Gracie turned the comments off on her post, it was inundated with 'likes' from her 56.8 thousand followers, who would have no doubt also sent the talented singer messages of support.

The overturning of Roe v. Wade was reached on 24 June 2022 by six of the nine justices who ruled that the right to an abortion was not covered under the constitution. It is thought that 23 states will now ban abortion entirely.

Gracie isn't the only star to share her heartache over the news. Former President Barack Obama said on Twitter: "Today, the Supreme Court not only reversed nearly 50 years of precedent, it relegated the most intensely personal decision someone can make to the whims of politicians and ideologues — attacking the essential freedoms of millions of Americans.

"Across the country, states have already passed bills restricting choice. If you're looking for ways to respond, Planned Parenthood, United States of Women and many other groups have been sounding the alarm on this issue for years — and will continue to be on the front lines of this fight."
