CM Punk has never shied away from expressing his opinions and political views.
Recently, it was leaked that the United States Supreme Court made the decision to overturn Roe v. Wade –the 1973 case that gave women a constitutional right to abortion. This decision has been extremely divisive in America for obvious reasons.
In response to the Supreme Court’s decision, CM Punk wore a shirt with the message “Abortion Rights Are Human Rights!” in support of women’s rights to abortion while he was on commentary last night on AEW Dynamite.
Known and vocal conservative republican and former WWE wrestler, Jaxson Ryker, took to Twitter to express his frustration with CM Punk and his T-shirt:
“How is wearing an ‘Abortion rights are human rights’ shirt on live tv stand for Human rights? Aborting a baby is taking away that living breathing child’s rights. Truly sad. That baby has rights. It’s a human. Jesus change hearts. Jesus we need you”
This is not the first time CM Punk has worn a t-shirt to show his support for women’s rights and the right to abortion, and it likely won’t be the last. He wore a pro-choice shirt last year in Texas (one of the hardest states for women to get access to abortions in) as well.
