‘American Girl’ Dolls Share Their Thoughts on the Supreme Court and Delight the Internet

In a series of tweets that have gone viral on social media, a Twitter account shared the thoughts the “American Girl” dolls have on the Supreme Court.

Protests between abortion rights and anti-abortion activists erupted after a leaked draft obtained by Politico showed the Supreme Court potentially wanted to strike down Roe v. Wade. Roe vs. Wade was a court case in the 1970s that granted a woman the right to choose to have an abortion across the United States.

A meme account with username @klitklittredge shared a viral tweet thread that explains “American Girl” views on the Supreme Court. The thread has over 18,000 likes.

Founded by Pleasant T. Rowland, American Girl dolls were created because she believed that dolls with different stories could help influence young children. Along with historical dolls from different eras came inspiring books and films. Along with historical figures, they added customizable dolls as well as several decades.

“The American Girl experience is more than just a collection of toys. It’s a collection of magical moments filled with goodness, moments that will feed a little girl’s spirit, soar her imagination and fulfill her dreams,” Rowland said.
