Jeffrey Dean Morgan is speaking out in support of his wife, Hilarie Burton, after she shared her abortion story following the Supreme Court's reversal of Roe v. Wade, which established the right to an abortion. 

In a post on Twitter, a gray-haired Morgan sported a "Pro Roe 1973" shirt, along with a stern message for anyone coming at his wife following her Instagram post, in which she wrote about her struggles with infertility.

"I got OPINIONS. You don’t like em? Piss off. Go follow someone else. I’m in a block n delete kinda mood today," Morgan tweeted. "Before you clap back with some bulls**t… read my wife’s last instagram post… and tell me I have no skin in the game."

Earlier this week, Burton posted a photo of her and Morgan's 4-year-old daughter, George, along with her personal experience with abortion following a series of pregnancy losses.

"This is my child. My beloved. My daughter. It is no secret I struggled with infertility. Losing multiple pregnancies before her was traumatic," the 39-year-old actress began her Instagram post. "But female bodies are all different and unpredictable. Having an abortion after my fetus died allowed for my uterus to heal in a way that made it healthy enough to carry future pregnancies. It doesn’t matter if you use the term D&C. The official word on the hospital paperwork is abortion. That’s what it was."

Expressing her disapproval of the Supreme Court's decision, which marked a seismic shift in abortion law, limiting or banning access to the procedure in half of the states, in some places immediately, Burton added, "You know what would have made that painful day even worse? If abortion had been illegal, and law enforcement inspected my body to make sure I hadn’t caused my own miscarriage. Cause that’s what’s coming. It’s already happened. It was commonplace before #roevwade."

The One Tree Hill star continued, "Row V Wade protected my rights as a woman to have miscarriages without scrutiny. Now I know a lot of you have miscarried. You’ve written me to tell me about it. Think about every loss and then compound it by knowing that the Supreme Court just said it’s OK for states to look at you as a murder suspect in that situation. Your miscarriage will make you a murder suspect. I can’t say this clearly enough or shout it loud enough. I only have my daughter because of my abortion."

Burton concluded her post, "So f**k you very much to the Supreme Court. And f**k you to the ignorant right wing extremists who want my daughter to have fewer rights than what I was born with. #wewillnotgoback."

The actress is among a slew of celebrities to speak out against the overturning of Roe v. Wade and share their own experiences with pregnancy loss.

Meadow Walker, Cheryl Burke and Ireland Baldwin have all opened up about their abortions, while Jodie Sweetin shared with ET why it was important for her to hit the streets and protest for abortion rights, even if it led to her getting knocked to the ground by police.
