Gwyneth Paltrow is celebrating the anniversary of the United States’ groundbreaking abortion decision with a new limited edition candle.
An entrepreneur who turned into an actress said Hands Off My Vagina Candle praised the January 22 Roe v. Wade case.
In a famous 1973 ruling, the US Supreme Court ruled that women’s right to abortion is within the scope of privacy rights protected by the 14th Amendment.
It gave women the right to abortion during pregnancy and defined different levels of state interest in regulating procedures between late and late pregnancy.
However, the ruling has been under pressure in recent years, and the states of Texas and Mississippi are trying to reduce these rights.
Paltrow wrote on social media: “The word” vagina “has great power.
“Still, you need to say: Hand over. In uninvited situations, hand over your vagina.
“Your reproductive organs; your choice.”
The cost of the candle is $ 75 (£ 55), and $ 25 (£ 18) will be donated to the American Civil Liberties Union’s Reproductive Freedom Project for each sale.
Candles will be sold on Paltrow’s Goop website and donations will be made until July 1.
However, UK fans need a US shipping address, as the website currently states that candles cannot be shipped to the UK.
