An old tweet of Hillary Clinton has gone viral on the internet after the US Supreme Court upheld the Texas abortion ban. On late Wednesday night, September 1, three former president Donald Trump-appointed justices along with two other conservative justices decided to block a Texas law that prohibits abortions after six weeks of pregnancy. However, Chief Justice John Roberts and the court's three liberal judges disagreed with the decision.

The ruling stated, “In reaching this conclusion, we stress that we do not purport to resolve definitively any jurisdictional or substantive claim in the applicants' lawsuit. In particular, this order is not based on any conclusion about the constitutionality of Texas's law, and in no way limits other procedurally proper challenges to the Texas law, including in Texas state courts.”

The SCOTUS’ upholding resulted in an uproar on social media. People started slamming the decision as a user tweeted, “I had a college friend who was raped… and from that rape she was impregnated.  She was able to have an #Abortion In today’s Texas she would have to carry her rapist’s child to term.  WTF? Traumatized further? #TexasAbortionBan #Rape #WomensRights.” “Congratulations texas on the abortion ban, you can look forward to the countless dumpster babies and overcrowding in the orphanages, you want these unwanted babies to be born fine find some place to put them!” another one added.



 



 

 

But one tweet that garnered everyone’s attention is the former secretary of state’s "prediction" from way back in 2016. It left people wondering if the 73-year-old knew that this was going to happen beforehand. A user named Jake Lobin shared Hillary’s old tweet with a caption, “Tweet sent: February 15, 2016 Hillary Clinton was right... About EVERYTHING.” The tweet by the former first lady had noted at the time, “5 and right now, a case from Texas could determine whether the right to abortion will be a reality for all or some.”

A person reacting to Hillary's old tweet said, “This is why elections matter. Hillary Clinton was always right about everything. Things could have been so different. Now you know the panic we all so feared with the passing of #RBG.” The second one noted, “Hillary has a wide breadth of knowledge but too many ignorant Americans voted for the three card monte dealer.” “People, even a lot of Democrats, couldn’t deal with having a brilliant woman in charge. All of them are to blame,” the third one added.



 



 



 

 

A tweet read, “Elections have consequences. I wonder how all those self-righteous pricks who couldn't find it in their heart to vote for Hillary feel right about now. The SCOTUS would have an entirely different make up and women wouldn't have to worry about losing their goddamn rights.” “Which is why some of us have been proud to have voted for her She won by 3 million votes And yet we allowed the loser in Because of an archaic and racist Electoral College An incompetent fool Was allowed to be installed With the intention of destroying the US And he has,” another one stated.
