Who is Phoebe Adele Gates?

What did Phoebe Adele Gates say about Roe v. Wade?

On June 24, 2022, the United States Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, which previously made abortion a constitutional right.

Shortly after the decision was announced, protests erupted across the country and many celebrities have since been using their platforms to speak out against the decision.

Among those celebrities was Phoebe, who wrote an opinion piece that was later published in Vogue.

In the article, she recalled a trip to Rwanda, where she saw firsthand what a lack of reproductive rights can do to children.

Phoebe recalled: "One 14-year-old girl, already a mother of twins, talked to me while trying to wrangle her two boys.

"There was a hopelessness in her voice. 'This is our only community,' she said."

During her visit, she believed that showing Americans what the pre-Roe era looked like would help show the country why the piece of legislation was important, but after it was overturned, she realized she was wrong.

She continued: "The problem was never that we didn't share enough compelling stories or appalling statistics.

"One more viral Gloria Steinem or RBG quote wouldn't have saved Roe."

Phoebe added: "This wasn't about persuasion at all. It was about power.

"The wrong six people were in positions of authority. And they are why women lost the right to choose."

Phoebe went on to add that the decision has given her a passion to fight for what is right.

She added; "But I am sure of this: Wherever I end up, I'll still be working to ensure that no woman – in America, or in any country – ends up in a room like the one where I met those 52 teen girls in Rwanda."

Who are Phoebe Adele Gates' siblings?

Bill and Melinda have three children together.

Phoebe has one brother and one sister.
