Following the Roe v. Wade decision, Lizzo has committed $1 million to Planned Parenthood.

Lizzo Pledges

Lizzo, an American singer-songwriter, has made the announcement that she will give a combined total of $500,000 to the organizations Planned Parenthood and the National Network of Abortion Funds (NNAF). Lizzo has stated that she will make the contribution using the funds that are generated from the upcoming tour in support of her album, Special.

Her whole contribution will be matched dollar for dollar by the event’s organizer, Live Nation, bringing the total amount of money contributed to the proceedings up to one million dollars.

After hearing the news that the Supreme Court of the United States had decided to overrule Roe v. Wade, Lizzo took to Twitter to make the announcement about the donation.

I’ve decided to donate half a million dollars from the proceeds of my next tour to Planned Parenthood and the cause of abortion rights. It was agreed that Live Nation would double the donation, bringing the total to one million dollars.

This new information emerges in the wake of the overturning of the Roe v. Wade verdict by the United States Supreme Court, which will lead to the elimination of the guaranteed constitutional protection of abortion rights at the federal level. At now, there are at least 21 state constitutions or state statutes that have been amended in such a way as to prohibit the practice of abortion.

Lizzo stated the following in a tweet:

“The most essential thing is action and loud voices. @PPFA @AbortionFunds and organizations like them — will need financing to continue giving services to persons who are most hurt by this ban.” [Tweet this] “The most important thing is action and loud voices.”

Action and a resounding voice are the two most essential components. @PPFA and @AbortionFunds, along with other groups like them, will require funds in order to continue providing services to individuals who will suffer the most as a result of this ban.

By putting people who have had abortions at the center of their work and organizing at the intersections of racial, economic, and reproductive justice, the National Network of Abortion Funds is able to build the power of its members and eliminate the financial and logistical barriers that prevent access to abortion.

The special tour by Lizzo will begin on September 23 at the Florida Live Arena in Florida and will end at the Kia Forum in Inglewood, California. Both venues are located in the United States. Tickets for all of Lizzo’s upcoming tour dates may be purchased via the singer’s own website, as well as on Ticketmaster’s website.

On July 15, 2022, Nice Life and Atlantic Records will release “Special,” Lizzo’s fourth studio album. The album is titled “Special.” On April 14, 2022, Lizzo issued a single titled “About Damn Time,” which was taken from her album of the same name.

What really happened in the Roe v. Wade case?

Norma McCorvey, better known by her pseudonym, Jane Roe, initiated legal proceedings in 1973 against Henry Wade, who was serving as the district attorney for Dallas County. Roe v. Wade was the case that led to the decision that the Supreme Court of the United States made about a woman’s constitutional right to have an abortion.

Norma McCorvey, who was an unwed woman at the time and was expecting a child, filed a case in Texas to challenge the state’s rules regarding abortion. In the state of Texas, abortion was deemed illegal unless it was necessary to perform the procedure in order to save the life of the mother.

Roe and other parties participating in the lawsuit pointed out that the statute violated individuals’ rights to liberty in accordance with the 14th Amendment Act. They made the observation that this violated the marital, family, and s*xual privacy of women, which had been secured in the past by the Bill of Rights.

Following a comprehensive review of the evidence, the court came to the conclusion that an unborn child was never considered to be a person in the eyes of the law in any sense. In addition to this, it was mentioned that the constitution makes a promise to safeguard people who are naturalized after being born in the United States.

The decision that was made at the time fundamentally altered the way in which states governed abortion and reclassified the medical procedure as one that was protected by the Constitutional Right to Privacy.

A number of well-known public figures have expressed their disagreement with the Supreme Court’s decision to reverse the case. In addition to Lizzo, a number of famous singers, such as Billie Eilish, Halsey, and Marren Morris, have voiced their dissatisfaction and outrage in response to the Supreme Court’s decision to reverse its earlier decision.
