She first posted a photo of herself with an inflated stomach and the words, "It's a burrito!" early Thursday. She followed it up minutes later with another photo showing her with a flat stomach and the caption, "Got a quickie aborsh in case R v W gets overturned."

"It wasn't funny for me to talk so casually about abortion. But when they take our right to choose away it will be HILARIOUS!" Silverman tweeted Tuesday evening.

In a subsequent post she added: "The government should STAY OUT of our PRIVATE LIVES except when it comes to who we marry & what we do w our uteruses!!"

Silverman's original tweets were still visible on her Twitter profile Wednesday afternoon.
