The Supreme Court’s decision overturning Roe vs. Wade prompted a huge reaction from artists online, and many are already taking action to do what they can to help.
Lizzo quickly announced on social media that she had pledged $500,000 from her upcoming tour to Planned Parenthood and Abortion Rights, with her promoter Live Nation matching that for a total donation of $1 million.
“The most important thing is action & loud voices. @plannedparenthood@abortionfunds & organizations like them— will need funding to continue offering services to people who are most harmed by this ban,” she shares.
“Black women & women of color have historically had disproportionately less access to family planning resources— this is a great loss but not a new one.”
