The decision of the highest court has sent shockwaves through the nation. At a time when there is a shortage of baby formula, there’s now a concern that many women will have to carry pregnancies to term that they may not want or that may be harmful to themselves or their unborn child. While many are against this choice, it appears actress Kimberly Elise is not and took to social media to celebrate the occasion as a win.
Kimberly Elise made her debut in 1996’s Set it Off. The cult classic led to a host of other iconic roles the actress was praised for including Tyler Perry’s Diary of a Mad Black Woman, John Q, The Great Debaters, and The Manchurian Candidate. Elise was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota, to her school teacher mother and executive father.
Elise was married for years to Maurice Oldham. The pair split in 2005 and share two daughters. Oldham passed shortly after they broke up. Elise announced in 2019 that she had turned her life over to Jesus and planned to “never look” back. Possibly something that lead to her recent viral post.
In her Instagram post, Kimberly shared a picture of a sleeping baby. In the image, it says, “for you formed my inward parts, you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you.” The text is from psalm 139:13-14. In her caption, Elise claimed that “millions of babies will be saved […] She followed this up by saying, “hallelujah! #allglorybetoGod” The actress disabled her comments so that no one could respond to the post.

Many fans were confused and believed the actress account was hacked. However, if you review the actresses Instagram account, you’ll notice outside of a few selfies, Kimberly Elise typically shares religious memes and quotes. Elise is a christian who was baptized at the age of 16. In 2021, the actress celebrated her birthday by being baptized again, and rededicating her life to Christ. The actress also has a podcast called, Grace, Truth, and Love – with Kimberly Elise, which she describes as “by and for Christian women offering encouragement and edification with a Jesus Christ centered and Biblical worldview. Hosted by Kimberly Elise.”
Kimberly shared two daughters with her late husband, Maurice Oldham. Butterfly Rose Oldham and AjaBleu Oldham. Butterfly studied at Humboldt State University and wrote a book with her mom in 2016 called “Curly Halo,” which centered around how to manage, protect and grow hair. AjaBlue is a marketing manager at Bernstien Finacial Services Inc. AjaBleu attended The University of Paris in France and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Art History and Psychology in 2010. She then went on to study writing and psychology at The New School in Manhattan.
With her Instagram comments disabled, fans took to Twitter to share their responses to Kimberly’s post. Many criticized the star for her role in “For Colored Girls” since the movie had a large subplot about illegal abortions. “Kimberly Elise was literally in For Colored Girls.. need I remind her of the abortion plot point???” Others poked fun at her film characters, often abused women. “They tearing Kimberly Elise up in her comments Lmfao … somebody said “’I see why Charles was dragging [you].”
Another person pointed out how Kimberly’s post is not just about her sharing her opinion. “Folks are saying Kimberly Elise can have an opinion. Your opinion should only govern you. Celebrating policy that revokes the rights of millions is not an opinion; it’s bad politics. No one cares about your opinion. It’s your politics that’s a problem.” Many fans are threatening to cancel the actress, but some believe she’s not big enough to even bother. Do you think Kimberly Elise’s career will suffer from this statement?
