Planned Parenthood will also be campaigning and reaching out to younger voters at music festivals.
“Planned Parenthood is grateful to these artists for using their incredible platforms to declare that our bodies are our own — if they are not, we can never be truly free or equal,” Alexis McGill Johnson, Planned Parenthood’s acting president and CEO, said in a statement according to a report from The Hill.
“With their help, Planned Parenthood and our supporters will keep fighting to ensure that our patients — and people across the country — can still access reproductive and sexual health care, no matter what.”
“In recent weeks, many artists have voiced support for abortion rights. Grande donated $250,000 in proceeds from a June concert in Atlanta to Planned Parenthood, while Travis Scott and Rogers have pledged merch sales from recent performances to the nonprofit. When Alabama passed a law criminalizing nearly all abortions in May, Rihanna tweeted a photo of the 25 lawmakers who had voted in favor of the bill — all of them white men — writing, “These are the idiots making decisions for WOMEN in America.”
