The Roe vs Wade case was overturned in the United States this week, ruling it “unconstitutional” that Americans had the right to abortions. Several US states will now introduce new restrictions.

Hamilton posted on social media on Friday: “Disgusted by the decision made by the Supreme Court in the US today.

“I don’t understand why some in power pushed and continue to push to strip rights away from millions of people. This decision will impact the most vulnerable among us. Women, people of colour, members of the LGBTQIA+ community and so on.”

Lewis Hamilton previously commented on the issue

Earlier this year, at the F1 Miami Grand Prix, Hamilton had posted: “I love being in the States. But I can’t ignore what’s going on right now and what some in the government are trying to do to the women who live here. 

“Everyone should have the right to choose what they do with their bodies. We can’t let that choice be taken away.”

The Supreme Court’s decision has sparked outrage in the US this week and many high-profile people have spoken out against it.

Hamilton, a regular commentator on social issues, has now lent his support.

The seven-time F1 champion is likely to further comment at next weekend's British Grand Prix at Silverstone.
