People on the platform didn't hesitate to share how they felt about Benton's seeming support of the ruling.
One wrote: "Devastating. The UK needs to heed this threat to our freedom and women's right to choose."
"Very ominous sign, Tory MP Scott Benton liking tweet from the GOP praising the decision," another added.
A third wrote: "Yes - there is far too much cross over with those who have championed ending RvW (and more) in the US swimming about in the gutters of the current Tory party. Makes me massively uncomfortable."
Someone else added: "Women of #Blackpool, people of Blackpool, take note…"
According to Benton's website, some of his political priorities are listed as "delivering a strong local economy", cultivating "more jobs for local people," and to re-open the "airport for commercial passenger flights."
On Friday morning (24 June), the US' Supreme Court released its ruling in the case Dobbs v. Jackson, which made the right to an abortion unconstitutional and therefore reversed the decision in the Roe v Wade case.
